Posidonia The International Shipping Exhibition

Piraeus, Greece June 4-8, 1990 Posidonia '90, the biennial international shipping exhibition, will be held in Piraeus, Greece, from June 4 to 8, 1990, at the Piraeus Port Authority waterfront exhibition center.

Providing the industry with a vote of confidence, as early as mid- February nearly 600 firms from 43 countries had booked space at Posidonia '90. Additional space had to be added to the exhibition area to accommodate the demand. The event might well be staged on all three levels of the exhibition center for the first time since 1984.

Sixteen countries have already confirmed national pavilions with Britain, the United States, the Netherlands and West Germany booking the largest areas. France, Italy, Norway, Japan, Singapore and Finland are also mounting strong national representations as is the Soviet Union, East Germany and Bulgaria.

For the first time at Posidonia '90, several independent Soviet maritime companies are booking space outside their country's national pavilion.

Based upon present registration trends, the host nation, Greece, will once again have a large representation at the exhibition.

Exhibition participants cover every facet of the maritime industry from ships' equipment suppliers and shipyards to high-tech office equipment and service companies, shipbrokers, finance institutions, insurance organizations, seamen's travel companies, port authorities, ship classification societies, inspection services, ship registries, publications and humanitarian services.

Several companies have revealed they intend launching new products during the exhibition.

The Posidonia Forum will again be a feature of the week. To be held on Thursday morning, June 9, proceedings are open exclusively to Posidonia exhibitors and to visitors invited directly by the organizers.
