The Department of Maritime Administration [DMA], in association with the Bermuda Business Development Agency [BDA] and the members of the Bermuda business and shipping community are attending the 2016 Posidonia International Shipping Exhibition, which is being held from June 6-10 in Athens, Greece.

“The event is well attended by ship owners, ship operators and managers, ship builders, shipping lawyers, ship registries, engine and equipment manufacturers etc., from all over Europe and other interested countries.

“It is a forum for buyers and sellers of ships, shipbrokers, ship builders, ship equipment manufacturers and other shipping service providers such as ship registries, nautical schools, maritime lawyers, survey organizations etc., and is a worthwhile meeting place for shipping business.”

Minister of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities Michael Fahy said, “I believe it is important that Bermuda’s business community joins with the Registrar and other officials to fly the Bermuda flag at events like these. It is a key strategy in building the island’s shipping registry, which is a worthwhile goal of this Government.

“This is the first time that Bermuda is represented in this exhibition with its own booth in the pavilion, backed by an experienced team of marketing and business promotional personnel,” added Minister Fahy.

According to the event website, over 1,800 exhibitors from 89 countries will participate at Posidonia 2016 and some 20,000 visitors are expected to attend.
