Genoa International Boat Show organizers will be in New York City Saturday through Monday to celebrate Columbus Day and launch its 60th edition of the show.

UCINA, Italy’s Marine Industry Association, has accepted the Columbus Citizens Foundation’s invitation to the celebrations for this year’s 75th Columbus Day, and will take part with a delegation including its president Saverio Cecchi and vice president Andrea Razeto.

Also taking part will be Ilaria Cavo, Liguria’s regional assessor for communication, education and cultural policy, and Laura Gaggero, Genoa’s municipal assessor for the development of the economy, tourism and local marketing.

The event will set the stage for launching the 60th edition of the Genoa International Boat Show, set to take place in the historical maritime city Sept. 17-22, 2020.

“We are truly honored to be in New York for such a historical event, to have the chance to use this global stage to promote the 60th edition of the Genoa International Boat Show,” said Cecchi in a statement. “Genoa’s is a Boat Show that has seen double-digit growth every year for four years running. Genoa is Christopher Columbus’ birth place and the Capital of Yachting, a city that showcases the very best of a healthy and growing industry in Italy and across the globe. We invite everyone to come and join us at the Genoa International Boat Show … for an industry-leading event that will celebrate once again the booming success of the ‘Made in Italy’ brand around the world.”
