Sustainable Smart Yachting & Marina

Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina

Design, innovate and build an ecosystem that invests in green solutions

// Global Networking event

25-26 September 2022


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.







Catalyst for Innovation

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."

Frédéric Genta
Interministerial delegate in charge of Monaco’s digital transition
"The yachting industry is a vital economic force for Monaco, and a factor of attractiveness. In today’s world, the evolution of the sector is a priority for the country, with digital technology as the main asset. In four years, Monaco has built solid infrastructures to reinforce the new yachting generation in particular. Innovation in Smart Yachting must play a central role in our development and modernization while respecting the environment."

Bernard d’Alessandri
General Secretary, Yacht Club de Monaco
“Monaco has always been one of the top locations for yachting. The Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina is part of the Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting approach. We have a responsibility to encourage all initiatives towards a more eco-responsible yachting sector - for our planet, for the oceans and for future generations. A marina is one of the key elements of the yachting chain, a living space to welcome yachts, owners and their crews, a micro-city that interacts with the onshore and at sea environments and is looking to the future.”

Olivier Wenden
Vice-President and CEO of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation
"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
"A marina is a future-oriented micro-city with a strong interaction between the land and marine environment. As part of the Monaco Smart & Sustainable Marina, we put innovation at the service of developing virtuous marinas with low carbon impact generating new economic values. These new marinas will be models for the cities of tomorrow. The pioneering aspect explains why startups are so keen to jump on board, offering innovative solutions in a range of fields ranging from water, energy and waste management to mobility, security, construction, port equipment and infrastructure, and of course protection and regeneration of biodiversity."
Jean-Marc Bolinger
CEO, MB92 Group
"We are proud to sponsor the Smart Marina Rendezvous event to support innovative solutions and progress at pace towards a sustainable future, in line with our duty and commitment."
Sheikh Rasheed Al Rushaid
Chairman & CEO, Al-Rushaid Group
‘‘Innovation, ingenuity and collaboration are absolutely crucial as our world transitions rapidly to become fully sustainable. To succeed, however, we need not only smart ideas, but also smart execution that makes the complex happen at scale. That’s why Al-Rushaid Group is supporting Monaco Sustainable and Smart Marina. I’m looking forward to great networking and discovering new technologies in Monaco!’’.
Céline Caron-Dagioni
Monaco’sMinister of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development
‘‘Building an eco-responsible yachting sector can only be considered in concert with all partners, and Monaco must be an example: we must all be on board with this theme to meet our commitments to reduce greenhouse gases. In Monaco, this is to be under 55% by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2050."
