Great success for the first edition of the Salone Nautico Venezia

The public responds en masse to the appeal of the“people of the sea”, more than 27 thousand entrances. The event immediately proves to be a reference for the world of recreational boating, strong of its dual commercial and cultural nature.

The curtain closes on the Venice Boat Show, with extreme satisfaction of the organizers but especially of those who participated, exhibitors and public. The objectives of the premises, summarized in the claim that animated the week “The Naval Art Back to Home”, were achieved with full satisfaction. The Salone Nautico di Venezia enters in full title in the group of the manifestations dedicated to the nautical one from diporto to visit. And it does so with a new approach, demonstrating a strong cultural vocation, as the place that welcomes it deserves. Visitors were amazed by the atmosphere and could not be otherwise: the art of camouflage that since 1200 has populated the walls, piers and basin still feel. It amplifies in the colors of the sunset, in the lights and shadows that enter the tense that hosted the stands. During the Salone, in the various venues dedicated to conferences, 43 meetings were held in which it was possible to discuss all aspects of navigation: from the environment to sustainability, yacht design, accompanied by 8 exhibitions on the themes of boating, sea and transport.

As the Mayor of the city has declared, Luigi brugnaro: “Venice has returned as queen of the seas in the most open cultural sense possible. We have shown our skills in the design and architecture of the building, also recovering traditional activities. In these days Venice has remarried the sea. As a municipal administration we have already financed the Salone for two more years. We do not want this edition to be an impromptu event, indeed the goal we have set is that it becomes a fixed appointment so much that we have already started to collect registrations for the next edition. We will treasure the mistakes and do even better. We want to have the whole supply chain, from small boats to big ones. And in the next editions not only the Arsenal will be involved but the whole city will get started, as already started”. The Venice Boat Show has laid a first stone solid, important, marking a total change of pace and gear with respect to the past of events dedicated to the pleasure that had not managed to get out of the local dimension. The choice of the Ferretti Group to use the Arsenal for the inaugural party of the ship of 50 meters Riva “Race” and for the world premiere presentation to the public of the motoryacht Custom Line 107 are witnesses of a well-placed trust. L’Arsenale lives: Art with the Biennale and naval art with the Venice Boat Show. A new life that deserves in full: it is a pier towards the future of the Adriatic and the Mediterranean. A response to the needs of the shipyards that have their production units in the Adriatic, to those who sail along the tourist corridor that leads from Venice to Istanbul via Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece. A Salon that was not there and that will serve to the future of the nautical one from diporto, developing also the topic of the hybrid and electric propulsions.
