Seatec , the great showcase of the Italian and international equipment and subcontracting excellence, organises the Blue Start-up Arena

The event, which will be held  from March 29 to 31, will involve  numerous and varied activities, from professional updating courses to business and networking, with the purpose of creating a stronger synergy among the participating companies. A new format for the Start-up Arena where Start-ups will introduce themselves and will take part in a final competition: the Elevator Pitch.


Carrara, 26th January 2017

CarraraFiere will house, from March 29 to 31, Seatec International Exhibiton of Technology, subcontracting and design for boats, yachts and ships:  the only exhibition in Italy dedicated to the sector of supply for the shipbuilding and shipping industries. An intense programme of Business-to-Business meetings, planned and organised by  CarraraFiere for all participating companies: an opportunity not to be missed for the sector experts to develop new interesting relationships. The thematic areas within the trade fair are numerous: technologies and accessories, sailing equipment, furniture and design, engines and propulsion, materials and applications, project and engineering, domotics and electronics.

Particular attention will be given to the START-UP ARENA, an area dedicated to business and innovation for the presentation of innovative start-ups with new, interesting products.

The Startup Arena is an exhibiting format  that has already been implemented this year by CarraraFiere during Carrara Marmotec – International Fair of Marble Technologies Design, and also in the context of  SAIE Bologna; on the wave of this great success, CarraraFiere intends to revive the StartUp Arena in the framework of Seatec 2017.

The Start-up Arena will give space to the youngest companies that are now entering the nautical market; they will have an exhibiting area to show their products and services, the possibility to establish B2B relationships – like all the other exhibitors – and to participate to the final Elevator Pitch competing with the other start-ups  under the watchful eye of a panel of experts that will award the most innovative start-up of the Arena… an umissable chance of visibility to become known among the nautical giants! To give you a little preview, at present among the participating Start-ups you will find: Easy Harbor Srl – the App for boats’ docking place exchange, created to facilitate the planning of the boats stops, solving the problem of ports and docking; PME MARE Srl will reveal CLICK: an innovative and simple device, operational and  inexpensive,  which makes  the docking of crafts easier in ports;, a Start-up that uses innovation in Yachts and Interior Design construction; GIOCOSOLUTIONS Srl works in the field of alternative energy,  to produce flexible and ultra-light solar panels; SUPERFICI Scrl is  a young company from Liguria which helps designers and businesses in the production of new products that  use last generation technology as well as the additive manufacturing technique; INCAT will present a multi-purpose platform for building high-speed catamaran; HAELOK SA is the inventor of one of the world’s strongest mechanical pipe connection, safe and fast to be installed by everyone, everywhere. Other  young companies with innovative ideas are about to join this beautiful project… More to come soon!
