Strong bookings at Genoa Boat Show


Less than three months from the opening of the Genoa Boat Show, the stands have nearly all been booked, the show announces today.

Confirmed participants so far are AB Yachts, Sanlorenzo, Maiora, Permare, Ferretti Yachts, Riva, Pershing, Itama, Mochi, and CRN, Montecarlo Yachts, Otam and Sunseeker

The President of Ucina, Massimo Perotti: “We are proud of the results we have achieved in terms of participants, which have increased by 20% compared to last year, and of the perception of the new format. These results are the reward for the great deal of work we actually began last year and the huge effort made on behalf of the President, the executive council, and the advisory committee of the Association with the constitution of a new company, Saloni Nautici S.p.A. In fact, we have made radical changes in the organizational structure and procedure, which has provided a modern and efficient service, based on the needs specific to the sector. The response of the professionals is the sign that we are moving in the right direction. The Genoa Boat Show is the showroom of the most important boat industries around the world and aims at re-establishing its primary role as the most important and significant European nautical event in the central Mediterranean”.

Interestingly, the Azimut Benetti group released a statement last week, saying they will not attend, commenting that "management has made this decision because the company intends to develop markets with higher growth rates and concentrate trade fair investments in these areas" .

The Group does however express its high regard for the Organizers of this prestigious event and their appreciation of all their work.
