Posidonia 2022, the world’s most prestigious biennial shipping event, on Monday 6-10 June welcomed the global maritime community back to Athens, following the pandemic-induced cancellation of the 2020 event.
The GATERS project is on the display by the project Greek partner, Glafcos Marine Ltd (GME), in their exhibition booth with a characteristic massive 3D prints of the Gate Rudder System (GRS) representing the scale model of the world’s first GRS retrofit for the project target vessel MV ERGE.
The ceremony at the Athens Metropolitan Expo marked the resumption of the global maritime calendar’s most anticipated event, which is also the largest in size during its 54 year-long history, having grown by 7% in net exhibitor space compared to the 2018 event.
A total of 1,948 exhibitors from 88 countries and 24 National Pavilions from Europe, North America and Asia will display their products and showcase their maritime credentials during the event which is expected to be attended by more than 18,000 international and Greek visitors. Amongst them thousands of delegates who have arrived to Athens to attend the 68 conferences, seminars and workshops, scheduled to take place at the Metropolitan Expo Centre Venue over the next four days.
