Posidonia brings the whole shipping world to its exhibitors. The international shipping community attends in strength with national pavilions and thousands of visitors. But Posidonia is also home to the owners of the world’s largest merchant fleet. Greece, a top ship- owning nation, operating 21% of global and 59% of European capacity, represents a multi-billion dollar opportunity for shipbuilders and for suppliers of marine equipment, information technology and the whole spectrum of marine services. The upgrading of the Greek fleet has kept its worth above $150bn. At the same time Greek owners have been ordering new vessels in the shipyards of Japan, China and South Korea. Oil tankers and LNG and LPG carriers are all under construction, along with dry bulk carriers and container ships.
