Posidonia in Retrospect
The recent Posidonia 2012 went out with a bang, (not with a whimper) according to the expo organizers
It seemed the whole world revolved around Posidonia 2012 which has closed with a bang, setting a new record in terms of visitor numbers and number of countries represented in a stellar week which also saw the signing of many deals and partnerships on the floor of the Metropolitan Expo.
Αlmost 19,000 visitors from 92 countries attended Posidonia 2012, making this year’s event the most successful so far.
Shipping and maritime professionals from all over the whole world gave Posidonia a vote of confidence as they came to meet, network and do business with representatives of the Greek shipping community as well as with those from a total of 1,870 companies from 87 countries who occupied 35,000 square metres of total gross space.
Even before the dismantling of the stands of Posidonia 2012 had started, organisers said that early bookings for the next event were coming in fast already. “Major companies and organisations from the USA, Far East and Europe have already committed their presence for Posidonia 2014, which is scheduled for 2-6 June, 2014”, said Theodore Vokos, Project Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A., organiser of the biennial event.
