The Venice Boat Show brings naval art back home; back to the historic heart of the maritime city.

The event takes place in the city setting and in the Venetian tradition with an international flavour.

Vela has chosen to commit to improving the positive impacts of the event in terms of the social, economic and environmental impacts, as outlined in its declaration of intent and values, and to decreasing the negative ones as much as possible.

Sustainability of the Venice Boat Show, in accordance with the ISO 20121 standard, above all means an opportunity to raise awareness on the issue, not only of the city, but of all the people who take part in this event.

–        sustainably manage the Venice Boat Show;
