Venice Boat Show 2022: what it is and how to reach it

Venice Boat Show 2022: what it is and how to reach it - Santandrea Luxury Houses The 2022 one is a very important year for the city of Venice, the heart and theater of various events with a global reach. One above all is obviously the Venice Biennale 2022, which we have presented in detail in a dedicated article. But not only. In the heart of the Serenissima, the doors of the Venice Boat Show have also opened in recent days, now in its third edition in the splendid setting of the Arsenale, where the best of nautical design and technologies will meet, accompanied by artistic and Venetian craftsmanship shipbuilding exhibitions. The event was inaugurated on Saturday 28 May and will see the closing ceremony on Sunday 5 June. The ancient ship factory of the Venetian fleet therefore hosts the event for the third time in a unique context, which boasts a water basin of about 50.000 square meters, more than 1.000 linear meters of piers, for a total of about 30.000 square meters of outdoor exhibition spaces and approximately 5.000 square meters of covered pavilions in total. The Venice Boat Show will be accessible from three pedestrian entrances (with as many exiting gates), namely the "Arsenale - Pavilion of the Ships", the "Giardino delle Vergini" and the "Bacini-Arsenale Nord" (recommended for people with reduced capacity motor).

All entrances can be reached on foot from the main access points to the city, but for more detailed information, please refer to the dedicated page of the official website of the Venice Boat Show. One of the central themes of the 2022 edition is sustainability, a topic of utmost importance globally and now also central to the luxury and fashion sector, as reported in our recent article about the future of luxury brands. There will therefore be events about low-impact technologies, such as electric propulsion, already a protagonist in the world of luxury yachts and which now concerns all segments of the nautical industry: from hulls to batteries, up to on-board assistance electronics and technologies aimed at comfort and leisure. All followed by national and international operators and journalists. And above all, it is open to an audience of all ages with attractions that go far beyond the nautical panorama, as evidenced by the provision of discounted tickets for participants in the Boat Show who also want to visit the Biennale Arte and the Venetian Civic Museums.
