Seatec, the International Exhibition of technologies and subcontracting for boat and ship builders, organised by CarraraFiere, has been officially included in the IFBSO, the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers. The announcement was made during the Federation’s annual convention held in Auckland, New Zealand.
Seatec, the International Exhibition of technologies and subcontracting for boat and ship builders marks up a new success.
Now Seatec is part of the IFBSO, the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers, an organisation which has been involved in the quality and development of nautical exhibitions throughout the world since its foundation. Today the Federation has 51 members from 27 countries representing only quality exhibitions as a guarantee for both exhibitors and visitors.
The official announcement of Seatec’s admission was given during the Federation’s annual convention held in Auckland, New Zealand in April. Mirko Musumeci, Seatec Project Manager, presented the exhibition to the representatives from other exhibitions present, the IFBSO Chairman Bengt Wallin and the General Secretary Tom Willis.
“We are proud to be part of the IFBSO – Paris Mazzanti, General Manager of CarraraFiere, the organiser of Seatec, commented. “Being part of such a prestigious international organisation confirms yet again the international level of Seatec reached in just five years. Moreover, it is an excellent promotion point for the exhibition and a positive challenge for its development, all to the advantage of our exhibitors that are increasing every year. We shall definitely benefit from the experience of other exhibitions and at the same time make our contribution to the development of the industry on an international level”.
The “Code of Excellence” was also presented during the convention. This is a sort of code of practice accepted by all members of the Federation. It was inspired by and is the evolution of a previous code of practice drawn up by the ICOMIA, the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, in 2006. The new Code of Excellence also represents closer working relations between the two organisations and guarantees the very high standard of the exhibitions in the Federation.
Other topics discussed during the convention include new communications technology and tools for the development of the exhibitions so as to improve services to exhibitors and identify new forms of sponsorship.
