This year Seatec was held together with Compotec, the third International exhibition for composites and related technologies.
The number of visitors was up by 5%, to over 9,200 in 32.000 square metres of area occupied.
The faint signs of recovery announced by the ECB the European Central Bank turned out to be very noticeable for the companies taking part in Seatec-Compotec. Among the new features of this year was the possibility to talk to a Free Legal Office, made available by Seatec thanks to its relationship with the Terenzi Office in Pesaro, specialized, among other things, in shipyard contracts, that was open to the public over the three days of the event.
Another new feature was a new on-line section for Exhibitors to announce their own news, a virtual exhibition to further support their presence at the trade fair that will remain up on the sites of the two events for the rest of the year.
""We are very pleased with the atmosphere over the three days of Seatec-Compotec Giorgio Bianchini, Chairman and Paris Mazzanti, General Manager of CarraraFiere observed the significant numbers of exhibitors and visitors, as well as the keen interest in the many side events, confirm our choice to stage the two events together as a positive one. We believe that the presence of the various different industrial sectors in the field of composites can be translated into a positive sign not only for the event but also for the industry itself, that took up this new opportunity without any hesitation.""
