A big well done to the Sailors' Society for being chosen as the supported charity of Posidonia 2014.
Known as the world's most prestigious shipping event, Posidonia 2014 will see more than 1,800 exhibitors with over 18,500 visitors from 92 countries attending. The week long event, which will start on the 2nd June and run to the 6th June 2014 at the Metropolitan Expo Centre in Athens will attract attendees from across all aspects of the shipping industry.
Mr Theodore Vokos, Project Director at Posidonia Exhibitions S.A, explained why he had chosen the Society as Posidonia's supported charity for a second year: "The whole of the maritime industry relies on seafarers, so it is important that we give something back through charities like Sailors' Society, who have the expertise and knowledge to support seafarers through whatever difficulties they face."
Sailors' Society offers practical, emotional and financial support to merchant seafarers and their families, in port, at sea and at home. Find out more at www.sailors-society.org
