The Venice Boat Show (“Salone Nautico di Venezia”) is one of the main international events dedicated to the boating industry, with exhibition spaces spread over a water basin of 50,000 square meters and an indoor exhibition space of 5,000 square meters.
Three Interreg projects will be presented on a stand “Sustainable blue” at the Boat Show. Although very different in terms of subject matter, these projects aim to raise awareness on green issues among stakeholders of the nautical world: GreenHull (Interreg It-Slo), Framesport (Interreg It-Hr) and Saspas (Interreg It-Hr). For the first two, workshops will also be held with the participation of project partners from the involved Member States and the interested public.
