SeaFuture 2023

The eight edition of the Seafuture exhibition and business convention, which took place from 5 to 8 June at La Spezia, registered a tangible expansion compared to previous editions.

Hosted in the Italian Navy base of La Spezia since its first edition, Seafuture saw the participation of over 250 exhibiting entities among companies, small and medium enterprises, start-ups, national and international organizations, armed and police forces, with around 80 companies coming from 11 European countries, Canada and US, presenting themselves, products and services on a dedicated area of 35,000 square meters.

The welcomed 71 foreign navies and defence procurement delegations could visit exhibitors stands as well as 12 among first and second line vessels, boats and underwater platforms from Italian Navy, shipbuilders and defence companies.

Under the ‘Explore the Unexplored’ theme, this edition was much focused on the underwater domain and the challenges the navies, industries, small companies, international organizations and maritime operators have to confront to protect and preserve it, without forgetting the blue economy and the relationships among the countries on the Mare Nostrum and nearby basins.
