Every two (2) years, the world maritime community converges upon Athens. Greek shipowners welcome the international shipping community to Posidonia and extend their celebrated hospitality. Posidonia is renowned not only for the networking opportunities and contacts made on the busy exhibition stands, but importantly for the number and value of deals concluded during the show. Nearly 300 Greek and international journalists were registered for the event representing the full spectrum of the world's shipping specialist media as well as major global news agencies including Reuters, Bloomberg and Dow Jones Newswires. Chalos & Co was well represented during the two (2) weeks worth of exhibitions, receptions and private meetings with clients from all over the world.
