Speed@Seawork 12 June 2023

Speed@Seawork is the latest sector-specific feature of Seawork, Europe’s leading commercial marine exhibition organised by Mercator Media. 

First introduced in 2018, Speed@Seawork is aimed squarely at facilitating growth and development for the design, build and operation of these specialist vessels.  As operating demands increase, new solutions for propulsion, navigation, communications and care of the crew will be needed. Speed@Seawork turns the spotlight on the sector, offering knowledge sharing, networking, exhibiting, sponsorship and demonstrating opportunities.

The Sea Trials will be held on Monday 12 June 2023 in and around Cowes Yacht Haven on the Isle of Wight, UK.
