The 51st edition of the Genoa International Boat Show – at Genoa's fair, from the 1st to 9th October 2011  - was inaugurated, at bank Intesa SanPaolo’s Conference Hall Palazzo Besana in Milan. Fiera di Genova SpA’s newly-appointed Chairman – Ms Sara Armella – and CEO – Mr Beppe De Simone  – illustrated the main features of this year's show together with the President and General Director of UCINA (the Boating Industry Confederation), Mr Anton Francesco Albertoni and Ms Marina Stella, respectively. Genoa Boat Show showcases the best of the international boating industry and the excellency of the Made in Italy, characterised by a perfect blend of design, innovation and craftsmanship. Genoa Boat Show is the reference event for the boating industry at a global level: a successful combination of business and new products, sea culture, sports and entertainment. One of the new features of the 51 st edition of the Show is the late opening hours on the first day of the Show, Saturday 1st October: it was a night of true celebrations, with events and performances held in the various pavilions and at the exhibitors' stands, which offered all visitors an even more enthralling experience and breathtaking views. One of the goal of Fiera di Genova and UCINA is indeed involving the public: the result is the zero-edition of "GenovaInBlu", the Boat Show’s “Fringe Festival” organised in cooperation with and under the aegis of the entities making up the Genoa Promotion Board, particularly Genoa Chamber of Commerce and Genoa City Council.During the nine days of the Boat Show, Genoa’s outstanding artistic and cultural heritage is in the spotlight, thanks to dedicated events, performances and special initiatives related to the pleasure boating world. The Genoa International Boat Show boasts 1,300 exhibitors, more than 2,000 boats will be on display, of which 450 in water and 450 new crafts.The Show extends over three pavilions, two wide marinas and large outdoor areas overlooking the sea. Its layout enhances the breathtaking views of the floating part. Trend estimates for the boating sector, referring to the first quarter 2011, highlight some encouraging signs, in terms of both turnover (+3.9% compared to the same period of the previous year) and orders, which went back to a positive trend. These data could possibly indicate a possible levelling-off of the market after two years of strong contraction (about 45% in 2010 compared to 2008, when the sector’s value amounted to approximately 6.2 billion Euros)Within this framework, other relevant elements are confirming the capacity of the Italian boating industry to maintain its leadership at an international level.Exerpt:The 51st edition of the Genoa International Boat Show – at Genoa's fair, from the 1st to 9th October 2011  - was inaugurated, at bank Intesa SanPaolo’s Conference Hall Palazzo Besana in Milan.
