As well as Foreign Navies confirmed their attendance. Our aim for 2018 is to increase the spaces of the Dock Area, to increase the presence of high representatives of the foreign Navies, to improve the performance of the Advanced Bilateral Meetings and to define seminaries and conferences on the basis of themes of interest outlined by the SMEs.
With the collaboration of the Italian Navy, the participation of other institutions involved in the protection of the sea, of trades and borders will also be intensified. From the very beginning, in fact, using the networking as an important tool for the growth of Seafuture, entering agreements with different subjects such as Ediconsult, Seatec (International Exhibition of Sea Technology and Design), GICAN (Groupement des Industries de Construction et Activités Navales), the centre of Euronaval.”
