SeaFuture 2023, the road map towards the VIII edition starts from Venice

Appointment at the Naval Base of La Spezia from 5 to 8 June, for the international exhibition aimed at the naval industry

The road map towards the eighth edition of the SeaFuture, the most important international exhibition held in Italy which is aimed at the naval industry, the Military Marines, the Management Bodies and the Governments who can share their know-how here and interact with the scientific community specialized in technology, safety, environmental science and infrastructure. SeaFuture 2023, which will take place in the Naval Base of La Spezia from 5 to 8 June 2023, was in fact presented as part of the 13th edition of the “Trans – Regional Seapower Symposium” (T-RSS).

“Thanks to the close collaboration with the Italian Navy, we have been given the opportunity to bring SeaFuture to the attention of the T-RSS participants” explains Cristiana Pagni, Chairman of Italian Blue Growth srl, the organizer of the first hub dedicated to industrial excellence in the sector. del Mare, the Blue Economy, technological innovation and sustainability in the marine environment.

“This was an important opportunity for us to meet our main interlocutors and consolidate the network of synergies and relationships in view of the new edition of SeaFuture – underlines Cristiana Pagni – The presentation, in fact, was held in a packed Squadratori Room of the Venice Arsenal, in the presence of the Chief of Staff of the Navy, Admiral Enrico Credendino, the Undersecretary of State for Defense Stefania Pucciarelli and a qualified audience composed of over 60 Military Marines from all over the world and representatives of the major international and inter-governmental organizations “.

The choice to present SeaFuture during the work of the T-RSS is also motivated by the consistency of the contents between the two events. The issues that will be at the center of the eighth edition of SeaFuture are those dictated by the international agenda, which addresses, even in a dramatic way, the main guidelines: security, not only in the field of defense, but also to guarantee a free, shared and sustainable use of the maritime environment, from the surface to the seabed; technological developments with particular reference to emerging research fields, such as cyber security, unmanned and underwater; the logistics and infrastructures that must necessarily be redesigned to ensure “blue growth” in order to guarantee sustainable development, as also recommended by the United Nations. It should not be forgotten, in fact, that the UN strongly wanted to establish the Decade of the Sea, recommending to all the institutions it represents to work towards a blue approach: “a blue cluster approach in the Ocean Decade”.

“From Venice – concludes Cristiana Pagni – we begin a road map of appointments and moments of confrontation, both national and international, which will take us to June 2023 when we will cut the ribbon of the eighth edition of SeaFuture”.
