Do you find yourself obsessively sketching boat designs? If so, read on for your big international break! Applications are now being accepted for the Millennium Yacht Design Awards (MYDA), awarded annually by the Seatec Exhibition. Seatec, which is hosting its 17th show this year, prides itself in being one of the top events in the marine supply industry focusing on the international exhibition of technology, subcontracting, and design for vessels of all sizes. The MYDA offers designers and architects, both beginners and professionals, the opportunity to present in two different sections: New Projects and the People-Oriented Boat.
Sure, it’s a little bit of a trek to get to Carrara, Italy, on April 3-5, but those who attend will have the opportunity to visit Seatec’s showroom with traditional booths boasting high-quality products, have business to business (B2B) meetings with international buyers, participate in professional training activities, workshops, and of course, have the chance to bring an award back with you. Five business clusters will also be present, which include delivery, marina, building, refit, and sustainability. Last year, Seatec saw 362 brands, 1,974 B2B meetings, 100 B2B sellers, and 54 B2B buyers. Visit sea-tec.it for more information or to apply to the 2019 MYDA awards.
