Congress and shows

Genoa International Boat Show

The Genoa International Boat Show is the most important boat show in Italy and, together with the ones in Cannes and Monaco, represent one of the must-be events in Europe for shipyards, brokers, boating enthusiast and yachting Companies.


The Case

In 2014, in a market greatly reduced and still in transformation, the Company I Saloni Nautici was founded; initially thought as a joint venture between UCINA and Fiera di Genova, due to several problems it later featured Ucina as sole shareholder. I Saloni Nautici main focus was the Genoa Boat Show organization; the request was for an agency that could serve as press office for the event. Four were the main requirements that such agency had to meet: technical expertise, good relationship with foreign media, ensure a constant visibility  on national and local media, ability to handle over 1,000 journalists during the exhibition.


The Cannes Boat Shows was increasingly earning  great importance as showcase for yachts from 18 to 30 meters, a field in which the Genoa Boat Show was traditionally very strong. The two exhibitions had the same target, were geographically close and were held in the same period.  The Genoa Boat Show was undergoing a rebranding process and needed – in a very short time –  to reposition itself on the international market, particularly  in the yachting and lifestyle fields, while mantaining its leadership in Italy.


In close collaboration with Studio Effeerre we created a  highly specialized, dynamic team, able to provide quick and complete solutions according to the client’s requests.

An intense communications campaign was developed, with weekly press releases, so to keep a high visibility, two press conferences were organized to present all the news as well as the side event organized by UCINA (such as  foreign operators incoming or the several agreements with new exclusive partners). To maximize the message diffusion we worked in close connection with the social media agency, at the same time we organized several interviews with I Saloni Nautici top managers and executives on the main Italian media. Local media also were involved,  in relation to the geographical origin of the exhibitors.

As for the foreign press we organized an incoming of over a hundred foreign journalists from all around the world, and we made sure that the whole Exhibition had a good coverage on international press, also taking care of the journalists’ onsite reception and management.

Frauscher Italia

The Case

Frauscher is a historic brand, with more than 50 years of experience in the shipbuilding sector, a high quality product and excellent management. In 2008 began a collaboration with Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli – still the only official importer of Frauscher boats in Italy – with the intention of strengthen its presence on the Italian market.


Although the Shipyard has a remarkable history and a great product, with already a good following among northern European enthusiast, the brand is virtually unknown in Italy, a market that has yet good potential. The request is for a professional support in elaborating and implementing a valid press office strategy.


In collaboration with Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli and Frauscher’s marketing a medium-long term strategy was developed with the main goal to increase the brand recognition. Such strategy combined a daily press office activities with an effective advertising campaign, as part of a  media relations plan that has been kept constant over the time. Also, periodically  are organized events dedicated to top customers, Italian and foreign journalists. Press days, sea trials, interviews, onsite visits are some of the events planned on the occasion of new models’ launch.
As a result, currently the brand Frauscher is widely recognized in Italy as an icon of elegance and design, and the new models are welcomed with growing interest, both from the public and press.
