Poland will organize the Polish Pavilion at the Posidonia 2024 International Maritime Fair. The initiative was inaugurated by Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Arkadiusz Marchewka.

The Ministry of Infrastructure is the coordinator of the work on the preparation of the Polish Pavilion at the Posidonia 2024 International Maritime Fair. The partners are representatives of Polish shipyards, the largest Polish seaports and Polish companies from the maritime sector.
A team of representatives of these companies is working out details about the pavilion. An exhibition strategy is being designed. Accompanying events are planned. There will be a presentation of Polish companies participating in the Posidonia 2024 Fair.

“Powering ahead” is the theme for Posidonia 2024, exemplified by the impressive statistics of the Greek fleet and the growth of Posidonia itself. The 2022 event welcomed over 28,000 visitors from 103 countries, eager to do business with 1,964 exhibitors in the bustling exhibition halls.

Importantly, only at Posidonia do exhibitors and visitors interact with the Greek shipping community, owners of the world’s largest merchant fleet. As Melina Travlos, President of the Union of Greek Shipowners states, “It gives us a unique opportunity for face to face discussions and productive business with old and new colleagues from across the shipping world”.

Over 2,000 exhibitors and 40,000 visitors are expected to converge in Athens’ Metropolitan Expo Centre from 3 to 7 June for Posidonia 2024 which is set to emerge as the epicenter of global shipping for navigating these challenges and fostering crucial dialogue to shape the future of maritime trade. And the industry’s constant diversification is reflected by some 45 newcomers to Posidonia, who represent both software and hardware products as well as government agencies from around the globe.
Theodore Vokos, Managing Director, Posidonia Exhibitions S.A. said: “This year’s Posidonia timing is perfect, as it will be held at a time when many parameters affecting shipping will have to be discussed and new initiatives will be launched. The last couple of years have been geopolitically challenging, with new crises erupting around the globe and shipping having to adapt to new challenges every six months. The wars in the Ukraine and Gaza, the temporary closure of the Red Sea passage, limitations to the Panama Canal, and other challenges have affected planning and operations of the entire shipping industry.
