BUILDING BLOCKS As our product range has evolved, it now has many applications. Together with our clients, we have the luxury of choosing the right pontoon, in the right materials, for the right job. By developing the heavy-duty end of our portfolio to always be a step stronger, we’ve also become experts in floating breakwaters, able to incorporate the strongest of building blocks when designing and engineering a marina that will withstand the test of time.

Printed in the UK by Stephens & George Face to face As we move towards the end of 2021, many of us will have – at last – experienced the opportunity for live, face-to-face contact with industry colleagues, and enjoyed real industry networking in both formal and social environments. And, while hosting events has been challenging and risky, fortune has favoured the brave. In the September/October issue we previewed two upcoming events – IBEX and Metstrade. While, as I write this, Metstrade is still to come (16 th -18 th November) IBEX (28 th -30 th September) exceeded expectations, with positive visitor and exhibitor feedback. The show attracted over 560 exhibitors, including 80 new companies, and more than 3,200 visitors. As IBEX show director, Anne Dunbar, emphasised: “We all needed this event to reconnect and experience the new innovations that will move the industry forward.” Innovation was the key theme for an ambitious new industry event, Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina (see p. 52) held on 20 th September after the launch of an impressive competition to find start-up companies offering tech-savvy sustainability solutions that could be adopted by marinas. Over 100 applications were received for the awards, and 55 companies from 30 countries shortlisted. A Grand Oral followed, giving each start-up the chance to explain and promote its product. Fifteen finalists vied for three best start-up prizes and four coup de coeur awards. Presentation of the awards formed a highlight of a day of wide-ranging presentations on climate change, coastal protection, electric power and green energy, regulations, smart building materials, sustainable marina development, cybersecurity, and more. The event will run again in September 2022. October heralded the return of the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference (IWMC) series, with the delayed 2020 event taking place – live – in Dubai for autumn 2021 (see p. 36). Sporting a strong theme – ‘marinas empowering tourism and economies’ – the three-day event featured high-powered conference sessions, active debates, a field trip, gala dinner aboard the QE2 liner and another first-of-class award – the Golden Cleat. Participation, considering international travel challenges, was good, with over 200 delegates from 24 countries. Marinas were evaluated through the eyes of a young sailor and an experienced superyacht captain; they were examined as investments and in terms of property-based development; and as new destinations in old commercial ports. Speakers outlined ways of using nautical sport to drive tourism, and create smart cities with smart marinas. IT and digitisation and the advantages of the circular economy were also explored, and detailed reports on different geographical marina markets delivered. Next up is Metstrade, another event that couldn’t run in 2020, but one that looks good for a big bounce-back with more than 1,300 exhibitors, including over 50 in the Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP).
