The agreement between Bologna and Naples is born

Among the novelties of this edition, in addition to everything relating to products and services, it is also worth mentioning the framework agreement signed between BolognaFiere and SNIDI. An agreement that provides for a mutual commitment to collaborate to guarantee the success and development of the Bolognese event.
On the occasion of the 4a Salone Nautico di Bologna, the partnership between the city administrations of Naples and Bologna was also born.
In this regard, the speech by Gennaro Amato, president of SNIDI, should be mentioned, who after citing the national turnover and foreign export data of Italian pleasure boating which has been growing sharply for 5 years now, applauds the new partnership.
“Having found full willingness in the First Citizens of Bologna and Naples, venues of international boat shows, to create a virtuous system involving private institutional and entrepreneurial forces, to support small and medium-sized Italian pleasure boating (6/15 metres), represents an important step. The implementation of projects for the construction of ports, financed by private entrepreneurs and companies in the sector, under institutional supervision and management, as the Neapolitan municipal administration is doing, is certainly a turning point that favors the recreational nautical system. At the same time, the executive will of the municipal administration of Bologna, in supporting the 4a Salone Nautico di Bologna https://salonenauticobologna.it/ in a capital that is not washed by the sea, represents a management intelligence that does not stop at concepts geographical, but seizes the opportunities for territorial development thanks to trade fair tourism as has happened for years in Düsseldorf, home of the largest European boating show”.
“A protocol agreement between Matteo Lepore and Gaetano Manfredi for the support and development of medium and small boating which represents a first step for the creation of an important axis between Bologna and Naples, capitals of the reference regions of the Adriatic Riviera and the lower Tyrrhenian side, concluded Amato”.
