Navalia getting promoted in the Netherlands, attending Europort Rotterdam and Mets Amsterdam
Half a year remaining for the IX edition of Navalia celebration, the trade fair's commercial team continues its work to promote what is expected to be the most successful trade fair held so far
With the aim of continuing to support the Spanish shipbuilding industry and strengthen its brand in foreign markets, Navalia has been present at Europort, held in Rotterdam last week and in which we have held some meetings with several international pavilions, very interested in our industry auxiliary and shipyards. We have also visited exhibitors who are members of our executive committee such as Navantia, Aclunaga or Schottel.
The Netherlands market is one of the great references for shipbuilding nowadays and will be represented at Navalia in 2024 with an international pavilion of over 200 square meters that will host its industry, which seeks to reach agreements with Spanish institutions and companies.
Navalia 2024 promotion continues this week with our presence at Mets Trade, which takes place in the city of Amsterdam, with the aim of capturing the nautical and luxury boat segment. Navalia’s Management will attend a meeting with ANEN, the Spanish association of nautical companies.
According to data published by this association, nautical market confirmed 5,645 recreational boats registrations up to October, 2,003 belonging to boats for rental use, compared to 1,865 registered from January to October 2022 (+7.5%).
“Nautical market is reducing its sales, a behaviour observed internationally. However, rental market behaviour in our country reflects that sailing continues to be incorporated into seasonal leisure plans. The trend that we have been observing throughout 2023 continues, which suggests an end to the year in figures very similar to those of 2022,” says Jordi Carrasco, general director of ANEN.
