Last week (12-16 October) we attended the 55th International Barcelona Boat Show, which shows off the largest and most comprehensive range of commercial offers for both sports and recreational boats. This year, the meeting in Barcelona was attended by the most important figures and companies in the maritime sector, where they could discover innovative models of sailboats, yachts, catamarans and all kinds of products and services, as more than 260 national and international exhibitors were presented with more than 670 vessels, of which about 70 were new models.
At aBoatTime, we didn’t want to miss this important opportunity to participate in the First Day of Entrepreneurship organized by the Boat Show. Here we could find innovative projects and different companies of entrepreneurs in the sector, because we were present in the Startups area at a small stand. In addition, it was a great honour for us to receive one of the Innovation Awards in the marine industry from the organisation. A huge recognition of the efforts that we have dedicated to the passion that we have for our work, which grows every day due to the tremendous support received by the sector.
The experience at the Boat Show could not have been better, as it gave us an opportunity to contact and share views with other companies in the sector. Also, we made ourselves known to the public more so they could discover the offers on options for renting a boat for a few days of holiday. The conference could not have been more satisfactory, since the people there were fervently interested in the sector.
That is why we have to thank the people that organised the Barcelona Boat Show for supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in our sector by conducting a conference that supported so many entrepreneurs. Moreover, we thank you for your interest in trying to boost the rental market in the nautical sector. We also want to thank the people who came to know and who were interested in the work we do, something that drives us to grow and improve every day.
