MARCH 2022

CarraraFiere and Navigo show the way towards an unique Tuscan Event dedicated to Yachting and Boating
CarraraFiere, organizer of Seatec-Compotec Marine and “NAVIGO”, a service center for the innovation
and development of boating organizer of YARE, have joined forces in a synergy aiming to set up in the
coming years a Tuscan event dedicated to professional boating and yachting: an important meeting
opportunity for the actors of the international shipbuilding industry,
Comments Leonardo Marras, Councilor for Economy and Tourism of the Tuscany Region: "The synergy
between two key promotional events in the sector is a really good signal. The support of the Region for this
partnership is in line with the path of support and relaunch of Carrara Exhibition that we have been
undertaking for months and which are now giving positive results. Carrara and Viareggio are the most
important hubs for the yachts and superyachts construction, internationally, therefore this event marks a new
impulse for an industrial sector well known to the world by its excellencies and development prospects for
the future ".
The goal is developing together an international event representing the pride of an industrial area at the top
of the yacht production worldwide, with the aim of establishing the 'Settimana della Nautica Toscana'.
Tuscany is the region where the marine supply chain is almost exclusively oriented to the superyacht sector
with 5,000 marine companies (of which 3,000 related to yachting), about 18,000 direct employees, 70
specializations (between production and services). An entire District that can count on a total production
value of 2 billion euros for boating (with an average of + 10% in recent years excluding the current one),
equal to 50% of the national figure; 30% of yachts over 30 meters (vocation of the entire district) produced
in the world and a foreign clientele equal to 95% in the superyacht sector.
On the occasion of the next March 2022 editions, Seatec-Compotec Marine and YARE propose a
connection between the two events that will join the production centers of Viareggio and Carrara, pillars of a
leadership of the highest international value in the panorama of luxury yachting and shipbuilding. The
organizers aims at establishing a “consortium” of the quality supply chain, representing the entire Italian
marine industry.
Thanks to the partnership signed between the two Companies, with the endorsement of the Tuscany Region,
and the Municipality of Carrara, Seatec-Compotec Marine, scheduled for Thursday 17 and Friday 18
March, and YARE (sponsored by the Municipalities of Viareggio, Camaiore and Pietrasanta), scheduled
from Wednesday 16 to Friday 18 March, with a preview on Tuesday 15 March for the Captains guests of the
event, will share some selected meetings.
The agreement between the events, while keeping the distinctive characteristics of each event, fully enhances
their identities:
Seatec-Compotec Marine as a B2B event with an exhibition format aimed to the marine subcontractors and
one-to-one meetings between exhibitors and the most prestigious Italian and international shipyards
delegates, sponsored by the ICE / ITA Agency for the promotion abroad and the internationalisation of
Italian companies, operational arm of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation

YARE as the only international event dedicated to the yachting industry focused on Superyacht Refitting
and Aftersales sector – as a B2C meeting between Superyacht Captains and production, refit and marine
yards and all Italian and non-service companies.
The two events will join forces on Friday 18 March with the visit of YARE's guest Captains to Seatec-
Compotec Marine and an “Fuorisalone” event in Viareggio organized by “Navigo” in which Seatec-
Compotec Marine exhibitors will take part.
