Posidonia 2020

Posidonia 2020

26th - 30th October 2020
Metropolitan Expo Centre |Athens | Greece


Greek ship owners and operators are leading the world by controlling the world’s largest commercial fleet making up some 20% of total world deadweight tonnage (30% share of tankers).  In mid-2017 there were 69 fleets under Greek control over 1 million DWT comprising of over 2,800 ships. The market strength of Greek operators is further underlined by their purchasing billions of dollars of second-hand vessels.  In 2018 the estimated value of the Greek fleet was US$100bn.  This makes the Greek market an important one to showcase your products and services.

The Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) is the group organiser for the UK Group. Companies are hereby invited to join the UK Group.


  • SMI as the group organiser, deals direct with the Posidonia 2020 exhibition organisers, co-ordinates payments, appoints agents and stand contractors, briefs the exhibitors, etc.

Other items – such as plinths, display cabinets, extra shelves and furniture – can be supplied by the standbuilder at cost.  Your Stand Graphics can be printed and mounted by the standbuilder for approx. €35-45 per square metre.
