Two thematic parts during breakfast The 2017 edition will be divided into two thematic parts: getting newcomers on board and keeping elderly people on board. When looking at the first challenge, the speakers will reflect together with the audience on new trends, such as interconnectedness and digitalization and how the boating industry can deal with them. Boat chartering and sharing, new emerging trends in the industry and their impact on the future of boating will also be discussed.
Second part of the Breakfast This part will address the demographic change and the fact that boating population is getting older. A brand new German study on the present and future situation will be presented at this occasion. Industry representatives will inform, how they react to the demographic change and what's being done (could be done) to adapt boats to the new needs.
