Marina High Tech is a new international show on the Côte d’Azur conceived as a high-calibre showcase of nautical and sustainable innovation across the marine industry.
The first edition will take place at Marina Baie des Anges in Villeneuve-Loubet from the 24 – 25 May 2018 with the support of Villeneuve-Loubet Council, CCI Riviera Ports, Nice-Côte d’Azur Council, the Regional Tourism Board, and local stakeholders in the PACA region.
The show represents a coming together of nautical innovation and sustainable development to demonstrate the importance and commercial imperative for new technologies that favour the protection of our marine environment. Marina High Tech comes at a time when those with an economic interest in the ocean and those who use it for leisure are increasingly motivated to reduce the impact of human activities on marine life.
Thanks to the enthusiasm of our exhibitors, partners and seminar leaders who will join us from all corners of the world, Marina High Tech is set to become an event of international importance. The concept alone is strikingly innovative – Marina High Tech is the first show of its kind to take place
in France or abroad.
Anticipated exhibitors include technology companies, manufacturers and professionals from across
the marine sector, as well as new generation tenders, toys and aquatic devices. A dedicated Superyacht Area will showcase products and services of particular interest to larger yachts.
For exhibiting yachts, there are 15 berths from 10 to 25m (two up to 30m) for vessels to display their design innovations and use of solar, electric, hybrid and photovoltaic power systems.
As a B2B show, Marina High Tech represents an excellent opportunity for participants to reinforce their position in the industry and to engage with potential clients including yacht captains, shipyards, chandlers, agents and management companies.
Round table seminars will take place over both days with the aim of educating and inspiring industry members and the general public. Guest speakers will discuss the latest developments in marine technology and ecology and the economic, regulatory and commercial ramifications.
At a formal dinner on the evening of Friday 25 May, Marina High Tech will present a prize for the Best Entrepreneur in the Show.
