Javier Arnau, director of the exhibition, was in charge of presenting the award to the outstanding professional career of the FINE 2021 Awards

Fairs and congresses finally revive after the complex year marked by the pandemic. And the World Maritime Week opened its doors again from October 5th to 7th to show the vitality, effort and innovation that is taking place in the naval industry, in spite of the difficulties. As it could not be otherwise, NAVALIA 2022 was present to show its support and join forces for the sector. The decarbonization, the European regulations or the future lack of personnel were the main topics of the forums of the shipping sectors at WMW 2021.

WMW is an international meeting that includes in the same forum five international congresses linked to the following sectors: the naval sector at Sinaval; the fishing sector at Eurofishing; the port sector at Futureport; and, new this year, the Oil&Gas Conference, where all aspects related to upstream and downstream oil and gas were discussed, and the Ocean Energy Conference, a congress that brought together experts in wave and tidal energy.
