Networking event

Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina

25-26 September 2022

How to participate

Participate in ‘Monaco Smart and Sustainable Marina 2022’, a rendezvous that brings together an ecosystem of entrepreneurs and startups to meet industrialists, financiers, promotors, marina developers and architects in the quest to find innovative solutions to promote development of virtuous marinas. 
At the first edition last year, this unprecedented networking event, supported by the Prince Albert II Foundation and the Monaco Government’s digital transformation programme, Extended Monaco, awarded prizes to three startups (Terroïko, Greencity Organisation and H2X-Ecosystems). 

All participants, including 50 international startups presented in the event’s E-Catalogue, praised the selection process which included one-on-one Grand Oral interviews and a Consensus Meeting that put them into direct contact with industrialists and investors.

Keen to develop an initiative that achieves tangible results, for the second edition (25-26 September 2022) organiser M3 (Monaco Marina Management) is extending the concept to operating marinas or those in development or on the drawing board, and architects who have worked on marinas by inviting them to present their programmes to reduce their environmental footprint.

José Marco Casellini
CEO of Monaco Marina Management
"We have been working on the virtuous marina concept for several years now. It is the deep conviction of all our employees that has enabled us to develop an expertise in this field, particularly regards water management. As living spaces, Smart Marinas that respect the environment must encourage emergence of new activities and services like Smart Cities do from which they take inspiration."

"Smart yachting is an avenue for the future of Monaco. It is a component full of potential for the transformation of our economy and attractiveness."

Bernard d’Alessandri
General Secretary, Yacht Club de Monaco
"As shown by the development of the so-called Explorers yachts, many shipowners are very concerned about the future of yachting. This trend can only become a reality if the infrastructures that welcome them are adapted to this energy and ecological transition. We want to be able to test these innovative solutions in our YCM marina, like an innovation laboratory."

"We are pleased to promote during the next Monaco Ocean Week innovations brought to the table by the winning startups. The major issues relating to marine environment conservation have now been clearly identified. Supporting research and development of new sustainable solutions for a more virtuous yachting sector is all the more essential if we are to continue enjoying the pleasures of the sea, while responding in the right way to the challenges of its preservation."

Géraldine A. Gustin
CEO of Blumorpho
"Reaching sustainability and carbon neutrality is calling for disruption and new technologies are emerging to enable the smart and sustainable transition. But success and impact requires leadership with the commitment of key players and stakeholders to adopt new models of sustainability. The Smart & Sustainable Marina initiative launched by Monaco Marina Management is a perfect example of an ecosystem entering into disruption to drive positive impact. BLUMORPHO as Innovation Partner is proud to be part of this action to define new sustainable models to be further applied in Smart Cities."
Héléna Bianchi
Vice President of NGE Connect
"Marinas are an interface that connects our cities to the marine ecosystem. Their components must therefore meet a large number of challenges: quality of service, personal safety, sound economic management, ease of use, adaptability to environmental constraints ... The combination of these challenges makes the environment of yachting and marinas an ideal meeting point for innovators who must design solutions that meet more requirements than elsewhere."
