SEAFUTURE was held in the Naval Station of La Spezia, and presented a great opportunity for Industries to showcase new products; in fact during the event many technological maritime innovations were introduced during a large number of stages and workshops. This year the event has gained an international profile thanks to the participation of about 140 exhibitor industries and more than 40 foreign navies delegations from all over the world. In this edition OCCAR was invited to participate to discuss its role in defence procurement.
