The event is scheduled from May 9 to 12. Everything is confirmed from last year, except for the single entrance to make visits easier. Two new sections of Versilia Yachting Rendez-vous are dedicated to tenders and brokers.
We’re getting close to the 2019 Versilia Yachting Rendez-vous, the boat show organized by Fiera Milano in cooperation with Nautica Italiana. For the third edition, the event will confirm the format: focus on large yachts and suppliers (accessories, components, engines, services), then on Tender&Toys and (since this year) Luxury Tenders & Ribs, and Brokers. The two new areas will be located in darsena (dock) Europa and darsena Italia, and will be recognizable by the specific chromatic solutions. In this way, organizers aim at enlarging the exhibitors’ number, giving a wider offer to visitors, potential customers and professionals.
One way is better than two
Another small change involves the visit path: there will be a single entrance, located north of Darsena Italia, and a one-way route along the perimeter and the docks. In this way the flow of public will be more fluid, optimizing the time and quality of the visits.
In the three days of the event there will also be a calendar of parallel events in the area, thanks to the collaboration of associations and municipalities of Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta. A mix of boating, art, design, fashion and food will give visitors a 360-degree experience. A big party reserved to exhibitors is organized for the opening day, then again the happy hour VYR along via Coppino at sunset on Friday 10, and the day dedicated to the encounter between art and boating scheduled for Saturday 11.
Navigo will organize B&ST (Broker and Shipyard Trading), which includes conferences and b2b meetings to discuss the business between brokerage companies and shipyards, and create synergies between two key players in the sector market.
