Seatec has expanded its B2B meetings for builders and suppliers.

Seatec, the Italian marine equipment trade show, said that it will run next year’s edition February 5-7 in Carrara, Italy. Organized by IMM-CaarraraFiere, it is the only professional marine trade show in Southern Europe. Next year will be its 18 edition.

The show was moved back to February from last year’s dates in April, according to a statement, to meet boatbuilders’ “needs in terms of business and timing.”

The focus of the show has been to provide business-to-business meetings between Italian marine equipment manufacturers and international yacht and boat builders. It has five business clusters for marinas, boatbuilders, refit, sustainability and supply chains. There is also an exhibit hall, “Academy” with lectures and workshops, and annual awards at the event.

Last year, Seatec expanded its B2B meetings. “We offer a dedicated space where the team of technicians and buyers of each shipyard will be able to meet directly the sales and technical staff of the companies exhibiting at Seatec,” said the statement.

The trade show also features Seatec Academy, which is a series of lectures and panel sessions on relevant boatbuilding topics. Seatec’s Technical Development Committee “has long been working to introduce further important news and business opportunities, taking advantage of the junctures and changing situations at this particularly dynamic stage of the market,” said the statement.
