The Barcelona International Boat Show, organised by Fira de Barcelona in collaboration with the National Association of Marine Industries (ANEN), is taking a step towards sustainability: In its 2022 edition, it will feature a space dedicated to exhibiting boats with electric or hybrid engines and the latest innovations designed to mitigate the impact of boating activity on seas and oceans.
In addition, the show has reached a collaboration agreement with the World Ocean Council (WOC), an international organisation founded in 2010 that promotes the sustainable maritime economy and has chosen Barcelona to establish its headquarters.
„We are more than ever committed to promoting care for the sea.“
The president of the Barcelona Boat Show, Luis Conde, believes that "as the leading boat show in Spain and a European benchmark, we want to contribute to the positioning of Barcelona as a world leader in sustainable boating and the blue economy. That is why we are more than ever committed to promoting care for the sea and showing all the possibilities that are already available and are a reality, from electric boats to the latest innovations that technology offers the sector".
The Boat Show, which will take place from October 12 to 16, 2022, expects to have the participation of 200 exhibitors and 700 boats, 200 of them in its floating exhibition, which will occupy the 'Sea Boulevard' and 'Marina Dream' areas of the docks of the Fusta, Spain and Marina Port Vell of the Catalan capital.https://www.salonnautico.com/en/
