The outcome of the event where superyacht captains are top-players.
Excellent outcome for the twelfth edition of YARE Yachting Aftersales & Refit Experience, the international yachting event dedicated to refit and aftersales operations, organized in Versilia by NAVIGO, network of innovation and development for yachting.
Over 1.000 face to face meetings between captains and 60 companies coming from the main Mediterranean and North European countries; shipyards and suppliers presented their services and products while building relations and starting new contacts. Great appreciation came from the captains, approximately 100, especially for the visits to shipyards and local companies as this edition of YARE involved the entire production district from Livorno to La Spezia.
Over 250 participants to The Superyacht Forum Live (Captains Edition) – organized by the International media partner The Superyacht Group and the workshops that provided open discussions on major issues related to the industry and were led by expert speakers.
Good start for the new synergy with the exhibition held in Carrara Seatec Compotec Marine which saw the organization of the RINA Training day at CarraraFiere fair ground and the new format B2B Booster which took place in Viareggio featuring extra meetings between suppliers and local shipyards.
“The collaboration with IMM Carrarafiere – underlines Pietro Angelini, general manager of NAVIGO and CEO of the Technological District for yachting and Tuscan ports – is the first step towards an integrated process of all the nautical events taking place along the coast, and not only in Tuscany, but among the main international hubs of the superyacht sector.
A collaboration NAVIGO hopes for and considers necessary to offer companies extra valuable tools through the B2B platform we developed in recent years. Thanks to this partnership, Tuscany will be able to stand out for innovation and networking among companies when speaking about yachting events”.
“This twelfth Yare came to an end with excellent results – says Katia Balducci, president of NAVIGO. It reaffirms the efficacy of a format that we have launched many years ago and that was able to attract the attention of the international audience since the very first editions.
