8th Seatec, the International Exhibition for technology, subcontracting and design for boats, yachts and ships

Seatec, the International Exhibition for technology, subcontracting and design for boats, yachts and ships, now in its eighth year, due to be held at the CarraraFiere exhibition centre from Wednesday 10 to Friday 12 February 2010.

Since it was launched in 2003 to this year, Seatec has recorded a steady continuous growth, both in the number of exhibiting companies and the number of visitors from the industry, and has therefore become the leading B2B event for the international marine industry for its specific goods categories.

Due to the fact that the exhibition is essentially designed for people from the industry, CarraraFiere has decided to hold the eighth Seatec during the working week – from Wednesday to Friday – so as to meet exhibitor and visitor requirements.

In 2009 Seatec attracted 963 exhibitors (including 33% from abroad), in an area of 34000 sqm. and 11380 visitors from the industry thanks to the high quality of the products exhibited and the numerous side events held during the exhibition providing up-to-date information and ideas.

9 months away from 2010, Seatec has already received confirmation from over 250 companies.

So as to make the exhibition more “user-friendly”, the exhibition areas are divided up according to specific themes:

 Materials & application – new feature for 2010 – for materials and technology for the construction of boats as well as products necessary for their maintenance and protection.
 Technology, equipment & services – for components, technology, services and solutions for the marine and ship industry.
 Marine Engines & Propulsion – an area for the leading motor companies, with conferences and meetings on issues related to the world of propulsion, organised in collaboration with Ascomac-Unimot.
 Design & Furniture, with Abitare il Mare – an entire hall – hall D – set aside for companies specialised in furnishings and design for yachts and boats.
 Electronics & Domotics – what is new in navigation, communication, safety, automation and entertainment on board.
