The Posidonia 2020 exhibition and conference, which is held every two years in Athens, has been cancelled due to uncertainty surrounding Covid-19.

Posidonia 2020 was originally planned for June and had been rescheduled to October. The organiser has now taken the decision to cancel the 2020 event entirely.

“The worrying increase of cases in certain jurisdictions and the inability to predict reliably where the pandemic will take us in the months ahead, compounds the uncertainty that now prevails, imposing upon us circumstances that are beyond our control,” said the organiser.

“Furthermore, the shipment of exhibits and the complexities of international travel, which are constantly being re-evaluated as events develop, pose major challenges and practical restrictions to our international exhibitors and visitors, with the distinct possibility that many will not be able to visit Greece. Without them Posidonia would not be the same,” it added.

The next Posidonia event will take place in June 2022.
