On 10 October, at the headquarters of the Emilia-Romagna Region, the Salone Nautico Bologna 2022 was officially presented, scheduled from 15 to 23 October in the BolognaFiere exhibition center. The third edition of the show is organized by the company Saloni Nautici Internazionale d’Italia (Snidi) in collaboration with the Bologna exhibition body and with the Trenitalia partnership of the Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group.
The event aims to be the showcase of pleasure boating for boats between 6 and 15 meters which, in 2021, recorded 75.6% of the entire national productivity which measures a turnover of 6.1 billion euros.
A growing event
During the presentation of the Salone Nautico Bologna 2022 Gennaro Amato, president of Snidi underlined how “From the first edition in 2020 to today we have increased the number of boats on display, bringing them from 100 to over 160. Just as the exhibiting companies have increased, passing from the initial 39 to the current 63. However, what repays all the organizational efforts made during the pandemic, with an edition in full lockdown, is the esteem and trust that has been recognized by some important Italian shipyards that, for the first time, have decided to participate in the Bologna International Boat Show, increasing its visibility and further enhancing it ”.
Gianpiero Calzolari, president of BolognaFiere, was also satisfied, who was the first to take up the challenge of hosting the Salone Nautico Bologna 2022 https://salonenauticobologna.it/: “We are making an important journey as a trade fair organization and we are happy to accompany Snidi in this first part of a path that proves to be successful “.
Governor Stefano Bonaccini also took part in the press presentation: “Last year Emilia-Romagna contributed 30 billion out of a total of 44 of the Italian trade surplus and this is due to extraordinary enterprises, some also in the nautical sector: if you think about economic volume is a quarter of the total. We are the first manufacturing region, and above all for export per capita, and the nautical sector is a sector that gives guarantees when it opens up and has more and more relations with the world and therefore this for we are absolutely relevant. We want to thank Snidi, because when we made the first edition I was not certain that it could have been continued, it could also have been just an experiment, instead I see that in this collaboration things are not only supported, but even developed.
