Smart and sustainable marina solutions under the spotlight

The 4th Edition of the Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina Rendezvous will return in September 2024 at the Yacht Club de Monaco.

The event is dedicated to smart and sustainable marina solutions and held under the aegis of Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting, an initiative that seeks to drive positive change in the marine sector, raise awareness and lead to concrete actions.

Organised by M3-Monaco Marina Management and supported by Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the two-day gathering will focus on showing the latest technologies and strategies for creating marinas that are not efficient, appealing, responsible and ethical.

“In a world of perpetual change, marinas stand as crucial anchor points for the maritime industry,” said José Marco Casellini, CEO of Monaco Marina Management.

“Our vision is to create responsible and resilient spaces, where technological innovation and environmental preservation blend harmoniously.

“By uniting our efforts on a global scale, we can shape a future where marinas are not only economic hubs but also models of sustainable excellence.”

Bernard D’Alessandri, secretary general of the Yacht Club de Monaco, added: “Many owners are deeply concerned about the future of yachting. This trend can only be sustained if the facilities that host yachts are adapted to support the energy and environmental transition.

“We have a responsibility to promote initiatives that contribute to greener yachting. A marina is a crucial element in the yachting ecosystem, acting as a micro-city that seamlessly connects and interacts with the land and sea environment.”

The event will encompass the Smart Marina Awards 2024 for marinas, innovations and architects to be judged by an international jury including representatives from architecture studios and yachting professionals.

The event will take place on 22 and 23 September.
