Posidonia '94:

Home Port For The International Maritime Industry Posidonia '94, scheduled from June 6 to June 10, 1994 in the Piraeus, Greece Port Authority's waterfront exhibition center, will feature more than 850 firms from 44 countries (confirmed space at press time).

"The exhibition plays a big part in keeping members of the maritime world up to date with key developments influencing all factors of this most international of industries," said Nana Michael, Posidonia's managing director. Ms. Michael said one of the most interesting aspects of the exhibition was its attraction for newcomers.

"We have many first-time participants, both from the international and local markets," she said. Countries like India, Australia and Spain all have a considerable presence at the exhibition this year. The U.S., in conjunction with the Council of American Shipbuilders, will have its largest pavilion ever. Thirteen national pavilions were confirmed by press time, with several others still under negotiation. Largest of the international exhibits is the United Kingdom's, which under the banner of the British Marine Equipment Council is mounting one of the most impressive overseas displays of its marine capability ever. Italy, Germany, Japan, France The Netherlands, Brazil, Singapore and South Korea are other countries with large areas. China is another country keen to underline its maritime capabilities, while several countries of the emerging Eastern Europe will be there, with Ukraine at the fore. The Greek presence is building up, with a larger-than-usual number of exhibiting companies representing ships gear and services developed in Greece. Some exhibitors intend to present new products at Posidonia, further bolstering the array of proven items and services that will be on display. A glance at the early exhibitors' list reveals that every facet of the marine industry is covered, from standard ship equipment to the most high-tech vessel management and other equipment.

The shipbuilding and repair industries will be especially well-represented. Other sectors with a strong presence include operators, classification societies, inspection services, finance institutions, ship registries, service firms, shipbrokers, insurance organizations, publications, ship suppliers, environmental agencies, port authorities and more.
