Barcellona Seatrade

Fiera di Barcellona

E’ il terzo anno che seguo questa manifestazione, importantissima nel suo genere e alla quale intervengono i maggiori esponenti del settore marittimo e crocieristico. penso da sempre che per poter parlare di un determinato argomento, serva conoscere bene la materia ed io in questi ultimi anni, ho sempre cercato di documentarmi al meglio ed essere presente durante le manifestazioni piu’ importanti.

Ringrazio l’organizzazione per il gradito invito e garantisco come sempre ottima copertura, sia in diretta durante l’evento che al mio rientro a casa, quando monterò i video realizzati e scriverò le mie considerazioni.

Fiera di Barcellona Fira

Il Seatrade di Barcellona sarà quindi scenario di questo  straordinario evento e dal programma proposto si nota quanto l’organizzazione sia all’avanguardia e rispettata nell’ambiente.

Saranno presenti alla prima sessione di discussioni i CEO delle piu’ grandi Compagnie croceristiche del mondo, trovarli insieme in un’unica sala è sempre molto emozionante e quando intervengono si percepisce quanto quelle persone siano esperte e preparate e quanto meritino la carica a loro assegnata. Ascoltare direttamente i futuri piani aziendali e progetti di innovazione è molto importante, infatti Liveboat non si limita a copiare i comunicati stampa, ma offre notizie di prima mano e foto inedite scattate direttamente.

Come vi dicevo la prima sessione sarà molto importante e imperdibile ecco il programma:
