The Ferretti Group will hold “Convergence” 2016, an event this week that focuses on training and refresher sessions for the group’s yacht captains.

The sessions will be held from Tuesday through Friday in Salzburg, Austria, and they will include formal training and outdoor activities, bringing together 100 captains and chief engineers from around the world.

Ferretti said the main objective will be to analyze the most important recent technological innovations added to the group's yachts by exploring their functions, how they work and the maintenance needs.

“It’s a pleasure to be organizing this strategic event once again,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement. “The ultimate goal is to help our captains and engineers keep abreast of what’s new, as they play a vital role in safeguarding the success of our pleasure vessels.”

“The comeback of 'Convergence' is a tangible sign of our management team’s focus on training and innovation,” Galassi said. “We hope to continue organizing the event once a year. It is not only an important and useful occasion for captains to get together, but also a part of a wider and global strategy aimed at the ongoing development of the group’s know-how. ‘Convergence’ is yet another way for Ferretti Group to provide a concrete response to the demands of an increasingly complex and competitive global market.”
