Managers and technicians will tackle the complex situation of tourist ports and the related bureaucratic, administrative and market scenarios

Carrara, March 19, 2019

The exceptionally bad weather that affected Liguria in October 2018 – which caused the devastation of the tourist port of Rapallo and the sinking of hundreds of pleasure boats, both medium and large-sized – have made the issues of design and control of barriers and defense of tourist ports extremely current.

Alongside technical problems, there are also bureaucratic issues, pertaining to territorial and central politics, as well as landscape issues, which have intervened heavily in this case, due to the devastating effects that the storm occurred in October 2018 caused to “Porto Carlo” port in Rapallo, with the consequent non-marginal effects on the nautical market, which was also dragged into vast insurance and legal problems.

In the framework of the upcoming SeatecInternational Exhibition of technology, subcontracting and design for boats, yachts and ships, to be held from April 3 to 5 in Carrara, Italy, together with Compotec, dedicated to composite materials - on April 3 at 12:00 P.M., in the Bernini Room of the exhibition centre, a panel of sector experts will face the various facets of the complex situation of tourist ports and the related political, administrative and market scenarios by discussing on the topic “The tourist port system: the marinas, the evolution curbed by bureaucracy". The conference is part of the prestigious Seatec & Compotec Academy, a space dedicated to in-depth technical analysis to promote the professional updating of the sector.
