24 technical conferences covered various themes, from design to composite materials, marine propulsion and many others.
Paris Mazzanti, CEO of CarraraFiere said, “We are pleased because among exhibitors and more generally in the industry as a whole, there was a new climate of confidence and trust, which was confirmed in the course of the many meetings we had both on the stands and at the technical conferences and discussions. Obviously, the industry players know that it will take a long time to return to the levels of a few years ago and it will be difficult too, but just seeing a change in the trend is gratifying for everyone.
“Clearly, the positive signs from Seatec and Compotec will have to turn into effective recovery for the industry”.
