The 2022 edition of Seatec, the exhibition of technology, components, design and subcontracting applied to boating yachting and shipping sectors, conceived and organized by IMM CarraraFiere, the only event dedicated to these sectors in Italy and southern Europe, opens the 19th edition of its history in the name of recovery, which is connoting the entire nautical sector, of resilience, the ability to face and overcome a traumatic event or a period of difficulties and sustainability, the maximum commitment that production activities must adopt to reverse the trend of over-exploitation of the planet’s resources.


The exhibition, after a one-year stop due to the well-known problems of the Covid-19 pandemic, in the wake of developments in the nautical world, represents an important opportunity to innovate and enrich a unique format in the Italian nautical exhibition panorama, which for 19 years constitutes the reference point of the industry.

On the wave of the current positive situation of the international nautical market, Seatec 2022 consolidates its presence and its value in the context of the pleasure boating supply chain, strengthened by its location in the heart of the La Spezia-Versilia-Livorno cluster, the largest producer of superyachts in Italy.


Alongside Seatec 2022 there will also be the 13th edition of Compotec, the International Exhibition of Composites and Related Technologies, the only trade event in Italy entirely dedicated to composite materials.

The 2022 edition will be dedicated specifically to composite materials in the nautical field, in close synergy with Seatec 2022. This is why it will be Compotec Marine.




Seatec 2022 will be held from March 17th to 18th. The concentration in two working days at the end of the week meets the needs of exhibitors and visitors to optimize meeting times and rationalize energy and investments.




Exhibition Area – The display of products of excellence in the most classic sense of a product fair and exhibition of opportunities and services for the nautical sector.


Sustainability – Seatec continues in its commitment to promote a growing environmental awareness, encouraging companies that produce and operate with the utmost environmental sustainability, due to the highest quality of the territory required by boating activities and that territory must maximize its preservation. Companies identified as “Green” are given special visibility and a “Greentec” award is established as recognition of the best eco-sustainable product and process.


Workshop – With the conferences Seatec has always offered high-profile technical content and addresses the hot topics of the new dynamics of nautical production.

During the two days Seatec and Compotec Marine will organize workshops on:

  • State-owned concessions,
  • Alternative fuels and “eco-sustainable” engines
  • Design trends and MYDA and Qualitec Technology & Design awards
  • Recycling of materials and their use within the reuse chain.


Awards – The MYDA award, Millennium Yacht Design Award, particularly encourages young designers, who express trends and the future of yacht design. The Qualitec Technology and Qualitec Design awards enhance the excellence of the participating companies and the commitment of the component supply chain to offer increasingly advanced products, both technologically and aesthetically.


“Shipyards’ Lounge” – where the technical and purchasing managers of the shipyards could meet exhibitors, operators of the supply chain and the technicians of the parent companies of their main suppliers, to deepen both technical and commercial matters relating to materials and systems affecting their production.

The event will be hybrid: exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet the shipyards present in the Shipyards’ Lounge and the buyers present in the B2B area, but will also have the opportunity to establish meetings with those delegates who, due to Covid-19, cannot physically be in Carrara.

A variation that undoubtedly increases business opportunities: the number of feasible meetings increases and the possibility of reaching that type of customer who, regardless of the pandemic, could not attend Seatec.


Seatec Job Exchange 2022 – Seatec Career Day is the starting point to explore the meeting between job demand and offer in the nautical sector. University of Genoa (with annexed Polo of La Spezia), Polytechnic University of Milan and Quasar Institute of Rome which train students approaching the world of nautical work with the skills needed by shipyards and exhibiting companies. The Employment Centers and the Chamber of Commerce and CNA will be involved.


Start Up – Cross Sector – Start Ups are a Seatec strong point. The Start Up area gives new entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their product and their idea through an Elevator Pitch, at a low cost. The Start Up area is open not only to the yachting sector, but also to any type of sector that has an interest in relating with the sector, through Seatec and Compotec Marine.


Social – Seatec and Compotec Marine will organize a “Cocktail”, to return to relive a climate of normal socialization and wish all participants a good start to the year, with the hope of being able to forge relationships even outside the boarders of their stands.
