Fimar will hold its twelfth edition from 16 to 18 June

  • The International Sea Fair will repeat last year’s location and will be held at the Muelle Santa Catalina.
  • Intelligent and sustainable beaches is the theme chosen for this edition, with Mindelo (Cape Verde) as the guest city.

The International Sea Fair 2023 will meet with the nautical and marine-maritime sector from 16 to 18 June, in what will be its twelfth edition. Fimar returns to the Muelle Santa Catalina, after having moved to this location in 2022, with the attendance of more than 16,500 visitors and almost a hundred exhibitors.

The direct projection of the companies to the public, talks and educational sessions, exhibitions on the water, family activities and, as the epicentre, stands and exhibitors from the nautical and maritime marine sector of the Canary Islands make up the proposal of an event that dedicates this edition in a special way to the sector of intelligent and sustainable beaches.

“This is a theme that fits in perfectly with the strategies followed by the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and with the lines of action of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria. Sustainability and intelligence are going to be two key elements that will mark the future, not only of our beaches, but also of our coasts in the fight against climate change”, said Raúl García, technical coordinator of Economic Development, Energy Sovereignty, Climate and Knowledge of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, during the meeting of the organising committee of the fair.

The meeting was also attended by José Eduardo Ramírez, Councillor for the City of the Sea of the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, co-organiser together with Infecar of this International Maritime Fair, as well as Natalia Santana, Infecar’s General Manager; the Port Authority of Las Palmas; the Maritime Cluster of the Canary Islands; the Technological Centre of Marine Sciences (Cetecimas); the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; the Chamber of Commerce of Gran Canaria; the Canary Islands Federation of Port Companies (Fedeport); the Association of Ship Provisioners (Provicanarias); Proexca; Spegc; Plocan: Femepa; the Spanish Seaweed Bank; the Canary Islands Technological Institute; the Canary Islands Naval Command; the Association of Surf Schools of Gran Canaria; the Varadero Maritime Club; and the Royal Yacht Club of Gran Canaria.

With all this, the committee is already working on the contents that will shape this regional reference event for the nautical and marine-maritime sector in the Canary Islands, which aims to offer entrepreneurs in the sector a specialised event to boost and energise the blue economy, as well as serving as a promotional opportunity for companies and professionals in the sector and helping to disseminate the importance of the marine-maritime environment and sustainability among the general public.

“Fimar will continue to maintain its double aspect, providing on the one hand a professional meeting between the different agents and actors in the sector and, on the other, offering the general public a leisure, educational and connection offer with the sea and the companies linked to the blue economy”, said José Eduardo Ramírez.

Invited city

As in previous editions, on this occasion the International Sea Fair will have a new guest city: Mindelo (Cape Verde), which will send a delegation to the fair from 16 to 18 June to create synergies with local entrepreneurs and share experiences and knowledge about the sea.
