Maritime transport is the backbone of international trade and the global economy. According to UNCTAD data, around 80% of global trade by volume and over 70% of global trade by value are carried by sea and handled by ports worldwide.

The number of overall participants in this year’s Posidonia, including exhibitors, visitors and press, exceeded the 40,000 mark, as some 29,000 visitors from 103 countries and territories filled the exhibition and conference rooms to the brim.
