Innovation Contest

The Innovation Contest was born of the desire of the French Marine Leisure Industry Federation and Nautic Festival in Paris to encourage and promote innovative products and services in the marine leisure sector.

Since its launch in 2017, the Innovation Contest has created a major buzz in the marine leisure ecosystem at both regional and national levels.

The major concerns of the marine leisure sector, the challenges of ecological and social transition are, just as they are every year, in fact, right at the heart of the Innovation Contest.


The winners of the previous versions of the competition gained significant visibility just from having taken part; in fact, for many of them, their participation marked the real launch of their entrepreneurial venture.

This year, once again, the Nautic will offer those project holders who were selected for the grand final an exhibition area, to be shared with other candidates but which will be available to visitors and the 5,000 professionals present the show, together with a booklet presenting the products and services approved for the final.

The show's communications and press departments will contribute special resources and tools.

In addition, as every year, at the final, the show will offer the winners in each category an area in which they will be able to exhibit at Nautic Festival 2022.
