A direct strategic axis is being formed between Salerno and Germany in the leisure boating industry. One of the precise objects of this was the participation of Marina d’Arechi in the 2018 Boot Dusseldorf, the international expo dedicated to sport and luxury boating. With its conclusion, the New Year looks to be one of ever growing relevance on the international market for the Salerno port.
An overwhelmingly positive response to Marina d’Arechi has arrived from the German event. Around 200 contacts were made by the Gallozzi Group owned firm. 95% of the contacts made were from Germany itself, an increasingly fertile market for the luxury leisure boating sector. In addition to Germany, the markets most interested in the services offered by the Salerno port are the U.K. – as confirmed by the 100 plus contacts made at the London Boat Show in mid January – along with Switzerland, Austria and Holland. In short, the whole of continental Europe has its eyes on Salerno and on Marina d’Arechi as the next summer tourism season approaches.
The result of the participation of Marina d’Arechi in Boot has been judged by the management as more than positive. This year the Dusseldorf show attracted 1,923 exhibitors from 68 different countries exhibiting yachts, boats and accessories for watersports activities. In addition to Marina d’Arechi, another 10 marinas from all over Italy (La Spezia, Marsala and Sardegna) were present.
The Marina d’Arechi team is however already ready for a new challenge, this time on the Italian market. On the 10th of February, the team will be in Naples for the 2018 Nauticsud.
