Posidonia 2020 to set new records in floor space and number of exhibitors this June 1-5. This will be the sixth decade of continuous service to the international maritime industry and the Greek shipping community. There will be more than 2000 exhibitors and tens of thousands of trade visitors from all over the world. The event will take place at the Athens Metropolitan Expo.
The Union of Greek Shipowners’ (UGS) President, Theodore Veniamis, said: “This year’s Posidonia Exhibition is taking place at a time that marks major changes in the global shipping industry. The implementation of the global sulphur cap in marine fuels, with whatever challenges this has raised, and the ongoing discussions at the United Nations International Maritime Organization (UN IMO) about the adoption of short and medium-term measures for the reduction of the CO2 emissions from ships are two of the most important issues that the Union of Greek Shipowners has been actively following. At an EU level, the environmental agenda of the European institutions is also a critical issue that needs awareness and attention on behalf of the shipping industry.”
