Posidonia 2024 to hold June 3-7


Greece’s flagship annual maritime event, Posidonia is scheduled to hold from June 3-7 at the Athens Metropolitan Expo.

Over 85 shipyards from 26 countries have already confirmed their participation in Posidonia 2024, which is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs & Insular Policy, the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping, and the Union of Greek Shipowners, and with the support of the Municipality of Piraeus and the Greek Shipping Co-operation Committee.

The organisers of the event said Greece’s revitalised shipbuilding industry will be prominently represented during Posidonia 2024, signalling a strong recovery following decades of decline and disrepair.

The sector’s Greek renaissance is on the cards after the completion of the consolidation of the country’s shipbuilding units in Syros and in Elefsina, and also due to the restart of Skaramangas shipyard and the increased activity in Halkida.

Through a slate of strategic partnerships and multimillion investments, Greek shipyard operators and the Greek government are making a statement of their long-term commitment to a sector estimated to currently account for 1% of the nation’s GDP. The sector’s revival will further strengthen both the country’s economy and security.
