This year, Posidonia Exhibition broke all records in terms of number of visitors, estimated to be roughly 20,000, according to organisers. More than 1,800 exhibitors, coming from 90 countries all over the world, contributed to set the exhibition, as one of the largest shipping events that the worldwide shipping community anticipates to attend. In one day alone, on June 6, roughly 5,200 people visited the 60,000 square meters of the Metropolitan Expo centre in Spata, near Athens airport, where the exhibition was held.

The success and global appeal of Posidonia 2012 proved once again that Greece is the homeport of global shipping, which in turn provides the platform for the most important mode of transport for worldwide trade.
