7 APRIL 2020 – LA SPEZIA
Given the evolution linked to the ongoing health emergency and the measures adopted at a national and international level to limit the spread of COVID-19, Italian Blue Growth Srl, the organizing company of Seafuture, has chosen to postpone the 2020 edition expected at the military base of La Spezia from the upcoming 23 to 27 June. The new date of the event dedicated to the economy of the sea and innovations in the maritime-naval, civil and military fields will be communicated as soon as possible.
This decision is the result of a careful analysis of the situation both from the evolution of the pandemic, and from the economic and regulatory one. It comes from a deep sense of responsibility, in the belief that to overcome this difficult challenge, the effort of each of us is fundamental to return to normality as soon as possible.
“We believe that postponing the review is the right solution to support the commitment of all those who are facing the pandemic caused by the Coronavirus on the front line – said Cristiana Pagni, President of Italian Blue Growth Srl – Today Europe and the whole world, institutions and businesses must concentrate to win an even greater challenge and gather the energy to face tomorrow with even more determination. We are constantly monitoring the situation so that we can reprogram the new edition of Seafuture, so that it can be carried out guaranteeing the conditions of maximum safety for all the participants, in the certainty that Seafuture can represent an occasion of renewed confidence and a sign of restart for our Country. The organizing team does not stop and will continue to work to prepare the best Seafuture possible. An event that represents a unique opportunity for industry, research and institutions to meet and to encourage the development and competitiveness of the system in the fields of Blue Economy and defense, thanks to the participation of numerous excellent companies, which we always count on, and to the support of all our partners. ”
