3rd Nautic conference to discuss digital change

The third edition of the joint event of European Boating Industry, the French Federation of Nautical Industries (FIN) and Nautic Festival, the “Digital Boat Odyssey” will take place on Tuesday, 5 December 2017 from 15:00 - 16:45 at Scene Nautic. The 2017 event will discuss two main aspects of the digital change: on land and on water, so not only the evolving way in which we start our nautical adventure before even getting on board, but also the changing habits and use of devices on sea.

Examples from other sectors, such as automotive industry or internet platforms offering accommodation or travel will be presented and compared with what currently is happening in boating. The collaborative economy which comes hand in hand with digitalisation, provides new opportunities for citizens and innovative entrepreneurs, but also creates tensions between the new service providers and existing market operators. The European Commission will therefore present its approach and guidelines for Member States in regard to encouraging the development of new and innovative services, while ensuring adequate protection.

The Nautic conference is free of charge and open to anyone interested in the subject. It will be held in French and English with simultaneous translation provided. No prior registration is required, however you need a valid entrance ticket to access the Nautic boat show. You can see the draft programme here: English and French.
