The third edition of the Round Table dedicated to boat building construction and materials will be held on 19 and 20 November at METSTRADE in Amsterdam.

Established in 2017, the Round Table sessions bring together leaders in the marine sector in an informal setting to exchange opinions and experiences on the latest developments. The third edition will feature two key topics - ‘Fatigue behaviour of composite vessels under slamming’ and “How to improve composite design thanks to better failure understanding – the latest news on the Recycling of FRP boats.’

Green thinking

Also high on the agenda is the challenge of boat recycling and reuse in light of growing environmental awareness. Whilst the journey towards truly recyclable composites remains a long one, the innovative spirit of the Round Table aims to stimulate designers and builders of composite boats to develop solutions.

The Round Table offers a unique opportunity to meet professionals from the marine industry engaged in research, design, production, marketing and service activities. Speakers include Sergio Abrami, Stefano Beltrando, Giovanni Ceccarelli, Mario Malinconico, Luca Olivari (OlivariEng) and Paolo Schito (Politecnico di Milano). Aaron Porter, editor of Professional BoatBuilder magazine will moderate.

METSTRADE runs from 19 – 20 November at the RAI Amsterdam with the Round Table sessions taking place on both days in the Construction Material Pavilion.
