A business event dedicated to the design, engineering, construction, and refitting of superyachts. From May 15th to 17th, the event will take place at the Bucchioni Auditorium in La Spezia, in the Miglio Blu district.


The Blue Design Summit, the first of its kind, gathers national and international stakeholders in the nautical industry to address pressing issues. The program features B2B conferences with internationally renowned speakers, promoted by the Municipality of La Spezia, MiglioBlu, the Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority, Confindustria La Spezia, the Chamber of Commerce of the Ligurian Rivieras, Confartigianato, CNA La Spezia, and Liguria International.
The organization is managed by Promostudi and Clickutility Team. The aim is to create a significant annual event in the nautical industry, a sector where Italy is a world leader in terms of both quality and quantity of its achievements. Key journalists from the sector will stimulate discussion on a wide range of topics, from the mutual influences between nautical design and terrestrial architecture, to specific industry trends, including the exterior shapes and lines of superyachts and their living spaces.

Special attention will be dedicated to sustainability, with a focus on the new trend of sailing superyachts, materials, and propulsion. Additionally, the theme of residential yachting will be addressed, highlighting the prominent role of Italian shipyards in this sector. During the ceremony, a jury composed of designers, journalists, and industry experts will award the winners of the first edition of the event. The Blue Design Summit stands out from other Italian nautical events for its particular focus on design and planning, an area where Italy has always excelled thanks to fruitful dialogue with all production components. The city of La Spezia has high expectations for the success of the Miglio Blu, with numerous companies aspiring to actively participate. To the prestigious list of signatories of the first memorandum of understanding three years ago, including Antonini Navi and other prestigious companies, will join the Valdettaro shipyard and the Port Authority.
