Live from Posidonia 2018

See where your ship is calling - Posidonia 2018 goes digital

Visitors to Posidonia 2018 will be able to see live port calls on a huge set of interactive screens thanks to a tie-up between global ship tracking intelligence company MarineTraffic and the event organisers.

Located in the main thoroughfare between Halls 2 & 3, the screens will display live port calls in the style of an airport departures board, and visitors will be able to interact via control consoles to show vessels’ live positions by flag or by vessel type. The set of four 110 inch 4K resolution LCD screens will also be used to show video footage taken from across Posidonia over its five days, as well as display showing the international range of companies, products and services present at the show on a global map, hall by hall.

“We’re really excited about this innovative installation – we hope it will be a real talking point for the visitors,” said MarineTraffic head of engineering, Savvas Kampouridis “We’re so pleased to be making such a big splash at our first ever Posidonia.”

“Posidonia has always been a strong supporter of new technology and new developments being showcased on the exhibition floor,” commented Posidonia Exhibitions executive director Theodore Vokos. “With over 80 IT companies present, this year’s Posidonia is very much about shipping embracing the digital revolution.”
