The 63rd annual Genoa Boat Show will be taking place at Piazzale Kennedy 1 from September 21 – 26 in Genoa. Spanning over 200,000 square meters, the show will feature over 1,000 brands both in water and on land, shedding a light on “Made in Italy” brands. The event is organized by the Italian Marine Industry Association Confindustria Nautica with a newly completed Waterfront area.
The Genoa International Boat Show will consist of 5-shows-in-1, each entirely complementary to the show but still with their own identity:
- Yachts and Superyachts
- Boating Discovery
- Tech Trade
- Sailing World
- Living the Sea
Saverio Cecchi, President of the Italian Marine Industry Association shared, “This is an event that has always interpreted and represented the yachting industry as a whole, which continues to grow: forecasts predict the sector’s turnover to exceed 7 billion euros and exports to generate record numbers…The Genoa Boat Show was the original, an example followed by others. It was the driving force behind the international growth of Italian shipyards, which had been operating since the 1950s, and positioned them at the peak of world production. It has never missed a year, not even during the storm that was Covid. With the completion of the Waterfront redevelopment plan, of which we can already see the first important results this year, the Boat Show will become a truly global platform for business development across the sector and everything that revolves around it, a unique location in the world.”
