The Ferretti Group said it will hold its 2017 Convergence meeting next week in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana.

Convergence, which will open Tuesday and continue through Friday, is a meeting with professional training and refresher courses that Ferretti Group offers captains and chief engineers working on the yachts in its fleet.

Ferretti said Convergence 2017 will feature an intense schedule of classroom sessions and outdoor events, bringing together tens of professionals from all over the world and involving them in refresher courses and group challenges designed to explore new technical developments, as well as the host city.

The seminars will be held by the main sponsors of Convergence 2017, the group’s consolidated technology partners, including Cummins, Cummins Onan, MAN, Pantaenius, Rina, Seakeeper and Willis Towers Watson.

The intention of the four-day event is to promote the direct discussion of topics linked to the management of Ferretti Group’s yachts and craft, as well as issues related to the prevention and management of risks and safety on board.

On the first day the top management and engineering team will illustrate the new projects presented between the end of 2016 and the beginning of this year that are being built at the group’s yards, and the most innovative technologies fitted on board.

They also will bring the audience up to date on the major refitting of large yachts that is underway at the modernized Super Yacht Yard at Ancona, in addition to the new maxi yachts and craft under construction for the CRN, Riva Superyachts Division, Pershing and Custom Line brands.

“We are happy to be once again welcoming our captains and chief engineers to take part in the various meetings focusing on the latest innovations fitted on the yachts built by the Group,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement. “Convergence is a vital element in our plans for promoting customer loyalty and is part of a broader strategy designed to continually enhance the know-how of the professionals who work for us all around the world. Captains and chief engineers play a central role in assuring the success of Ferretti Group, which has always acknowledged the importance of providing excellent customer care and after-sales service.”
