The 2014 edition of the Ferretti Group’s EMEA dealer meeting, which concluded last week, included dealers in the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions with participation from nearly 100 partners.

Dealers came from France, Ukraine, Russia, the Middle East, Greece, Romania, Israel, Bulgaria, Germany, Turkey, Spain, the United Kingdom, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Scandinavia, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Monte Carlo and Angola.

The three-day event, which wrapped up on Thursday, was held at the group’s shipyards in La Spezia, Forlì, Mondolfo and Ancona and this year included roundtables, visits to the sites and team-building activities.

This year the event also aimed to offer more details about the group’s strategies and prospects for the coming years and it included Ferretti Group CEO Ferruccio Rossi, EMEA director Mario Chessa and, for the first time, Tan Xuguang, chairman of the Weichai Group and the Ferretti Group.

“What I would like to emphasize today is that the Weichai Group, a group that has made great investments in Europe, will continue to support the Ferretti Group, particularly in relation to the further development of the product range and always focusing on the market requirements and, even more so, on customers’ requirements,” Xuguang said at the event, according to a statement.

“The world is changing, the markets are changing and we must anticipate these changes by following customized strategies based on the different markets, always seeking to be more competitive and keeping our quality intact, which makes the Ferretti Group still No. 1 in the world,” Xuguang said.
