Miami, February 15th, 2018
“In order to increase the export and consolidate its role as leadership in a global way, Made in Italy needs to focus on Design, Innovation, Technology and also exploits the natural capacity of aggregation of our SMEs”. This is the statement of Fabio De Furia, President of the Miami Scientific Italian Community, at the opening of the Miami International Boat Show, the largest nautical event in the world that will animate Miami Marine Stadium Park & Basin from February 15th to 19
The Miami International Boat Show counts the participation of over 1000 exhibitors and 1400 boats in almost 100,000 square meters of exhibition, with the presence of many Italian companies, and 100,000 visitors expected from 35 nations. The event has a direct economic impact of approximately $ 850 million, generating 6,000 jobs and $36 billion for the United States industry. There are numbers that confirm that the nautical sector in the USA is in a full economic recovery, registering a growth of 6% in 2017 with a forecast for the current year of a further 6%.
“These are data that represent a very interesting opportunity for that part of the Italian system made up of high-tech companies that invest in quality, scientific research, innovation, technology, and that can find a natural commercial outlet in these markets. De Furia concludes: “The Italian companies have all the know-how to best combine the craftsmanship of the national shipbuilding tradition with the technological innovation and design applied to the production of mega yachts. All of this sees us as leader in the nautical sector in the world”.
