Seatec is the International Exhibition of Technology Subcontracting and Design for Boats, Yachts and Ships.
Now in its 13th edition, Seatec is the only exhibition in Italy dedicated to companies that deal with provision for yachting and shipbuilding, a must for professionals who find here the best of what the industry has to offer in terms of components, mechanics, engines and propulsion systems, electronics and home automation, raw materials, engineering and design, sailing equipment, services.
The proximity to production areas that represent the excellence in the construction of super-yachts makes Seatec the ideal setting for a trade fair which highlights the quality of Made in Italy; the fair is held in Marina di Carrara, geographically halfway between Livorno and Genoa, passing through the industrial districts of Viareggio and Pisa, where the most prestigious shipyards in the world are located, undisputed leaders in the production of super yachts and synonymous of a quality recognized globally.
Our Visitors are professionals only: technical managers and owners of shipyards, brokers, consultants, importers and distributors of raw materials, equipment and finished products.
Seatec takes place together with Compotec, the International trade fair dedicated to composites and related technologies.
From various editions Seatec addresses the issue of environmental sustainability through the GreenTec, a project that allows Exhibitors to put in evidence their products / services that meet green criteria.
Seatec 2015 will host the 2nd edition of Medvillage, an area dedicated to accessories and components from foreign countries bordering the Mediterranean, creating a particularly appealing geographic characterization.
To complete the technical profile of the event, CarraraFiere organizes a full calendar of conferences ranging from safety, use of materials, insights on new technologies, design, engineering and so on.
Finally, prestigious awards reserved for Exhibitors represent an added value that enrich our event:
• MYDA Millennium Yacht Design Award presents new projects by professional designers and newcomers;
• Qualitec Technology and Qualitec Design Awards competitions reserved for exhibitors who present technological innovations and design concepts which best contribute to life on board.
Seatec 2015 will also host the 5th edition of Yare – After Sales & Refit Yacht Experience – the event dedicated to yacht refitting, a sector increasingly strategic for the whole industry. Yare exhibitors are companies that deal with service including yacht agencies, brokers, crew managers, flag registers, refit clusters, consultants and so on. Captains of large units are the protagonists of YARE during the week of events organized between Viareggio and Marina di Carrara. Exhibitors can meet the Captains during the B2C meetings organized at Seatec.
Besides the exhibiting platform, the incoming of foreign delegations organized by ICE aimed at the organization of B2B meetings with our Exhibitors is a valuable opportunity to do business and undertake new business relationships. Delegations are composed by potential buyers, mostly shipyard sales department or technicians as well as distributors. Participation is free and open to all Seatec Exhibitors. During the last edition, more than 700 meetings were held. This project is organized and supported by the Agency for the promotion and internationalization of Italian companies, ICE.
Seatec closed the 2014 edition with a positive balance characterized by an increase in visitors, 8,346 (+10.5% compared to the previous edition.) The fair, which also hosted the 4th exhibition dedicated to Refit and aftersales services, YARE, saw the participation of 458 marks, of which 163 foreigners.
