India & China at Posidonia 2010

Thursday, December 17, 2009

India and China have pledged their largest presence at the next Posidonia, a shipping forum to be held at the 31,000 square metre, one-level Hellenikon Exhibition Centre from 7-11 June 2010.

“Every two years Posidonia is the barometre of global shipping trends reflecting the sector’s pace of growth and prevailing sentiments in boardrooms across key shipping markets worldwide,” said Nana Michael, Managing Director, Posidonia Events S.A. “At Posidonia 2010, the world’s maritime community will examine the impact of the global financial meltdown on seaborne trade, ports, logistics and newbuildings,” she said. “With its first-ever National Pavilion India signals significant growth potential for the international shipping industry as the Sub Continent powerhouse’s economy continues to project handsome nine per cent growth rates for 2010.”.

“And China, a traditional Posidonia heavyweight, will also surpass previous appearances by staging two national pavilions for the first time at Posidonia 2010.”

The Asian domination of world shipbuilding’s fortunes will further be highlighted at Posidonia 2010 with the large-scale participation of Japan, Korea and Singapore and the stand alone presence of some of the region’s largest shipyards.

Some 20,000 trade visitors are expected to attend the exhibition, breaking the previous record set in 2008. Organisers also expect to welcome more than 1,700 exhibitors from 80 countries.

Visitors and exhibitors will also benefit from the week-long Posidonia sports festival which this year will see the 5th anniversary edition of the Lloyds Register-sponsored Posidonia Sailing Cup, the 2nd Posidonia Shipsoccer Tournament sponsored by Castrol Marine and the inaugural Golfplay Tournament.  The Golf Tournament, to take place at the Glyfada Golf Course, is a new event in the Posidonia programme, as it has been a long-standing request of both exhibitors and visitors of the exhibition.

Posidonia 2010 is sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Competitiveness and Shipping, the Municipality of Piraeus, the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping, the Union of Greek Shipowners, the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee, the Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners Association, the Association of Greek Passenger Shipping Companies and the Union of Marine Enterprises.
