A tradition that has spanned over 40 years, Posidonia 2012 broke all previous records. Over 1,870 exhibitors from 87 countries and 18,547 trade visitors from 92 countries took part in the 23rd staging of this event. The exhibitors represented all sectors of the shipping industry, including ship owners, shipbuilding firms, manufacturers of marine equipment and ship products of all kinds, software providers to shipbrokers, insurance and banking firms, port authorities, shipyards, and shipping related service firms. Water treatment specialists and pollution control experts also participated in Posidonia 2012 and are expected at Posidonia 2014 in response to the significant cost savings generated through the effective implementation of environmentally-friendly innovations in the shipping sector.
