Posidonia 2016 is on course to be the biggest ever despite unfavorable market conditions such as plummeting oil prices and slowing economic growth in key economies and especially China.

With floor space demand at unprecedented levels, the organizers of the world’s most prestigious shipping trade event expect to break the records set at Posidonia 2014 that was attended by more than 1,840 exhibitors and 19,000 visitors.

Increased demand is driven by the major shipbuilding nations and other traditional Posidonia participants from all over the world who have already confirmed their presence at this June’s event in addition to many first-time exhibitors representing some new-to-Posidonia sectors.
