YARE (Yachting After Sales & Refit Exhibition) will be once again hosted by Viareggio and Marina di Carrara from February 3 to 7, 2014. The most innovative event in Italy, YARE is dedicated to refit as well as after sales operations for the superyacht sector.
YARE offers a wide and multifaceted bunch of proposals to the superyacht business professionals, concentrated in a busy week, to make business as un-usual.
YARE’s main characteristic is to be more and more focused on strengthening the relationship between the yards, the supplying chain and the real decision makers of the refit activities: Captains and superyacht managers.
Born in 2011 to promote the potential of the wide and extended construction and repair system spanning in the region from La Spezia to Livorno (with Viareggio as a reference point) YARE on its 4th year wants to offer to companies and professionals of this sector a lively edition to improve the business in a non-conventional way.
The purpose of this project is to maximize the opportunities to directly meet technical operators who are the real decision makers for refitting operations as are Captains of megayachts, brokers, management companies, surveyors, international registry technicians, owner representatives, a very professional and skilled crowd with high decision and purchase power.
In different moments YARE will get deeper and up date the main topics of the sector through the 5th edition of Italian Superyacht Forum, the 2nd edition of Superyacht Captains’ Forum and direct meetings among the protagonists of the business.
Thanks to the co-operation with CarraraFiere, YARE is offering to refit yards and supplying chain companies the possibility to exhibit in a special dedicated area within the 12th edition of Seatec, the International Exhibition of Technologies, Subcontracting and Design for Boats and Megayachts.
