Marina Port Vell (MPV), Barcelona held its second Annual Press Conference and Luncheon on 20th September 2012 during the Monaco Yacht Show. Marina Port Vell and Salamanca Group, marina owner, unveiled its establishment and plans for the Barcelona Nautical Cluster (BNC).
The aim of the Barcelona Nautical Cluster (BNC) is to create an unprecedented civic-corporate alliance for the benefit of the community of Barcelona and global yachtsmen.
Marina Port Vell and Salamanca Group executives welcomed conference speakers: Toni Tio, president of the Catalan Maritime Forum; Adolf Romagosa, managing director of Port 2000 and, Antoni Vives, deputy mayor of Barcelona who each enthusiastically explained the priorities and initiatives of the Barcelona Nautical Cluster.
The speakers detailed the economic effects of the Barcelona Nautical Cluster and redevelopments of MB’92 and Marina Port Vell to cater for larger superyachts. Importantly, Vives proclaimed that there is no other city that could generate a nautical cluster like Barcelona. His compelling points illuminated the Port area’s advantageous location in the heart of the city and that the BNC unifies Barcelona’s already well-established nautical businesses.
The Barcelona Nautical Cluster is a benchmark for future similar yachting industry initiatives. Key dignitaries to the Barcelona Nautical Cluster also attended the event including, Willy Muller, CEO of Barcelona Regional Urban Development Agency; Juan Carlos Montiel, subdirector of Barcelona Regional Urban Development Agency; Joaquim Molins, institutional director of Barcelona Regional Urban Development Agency; Pepe García, managing director of MB’92; Jorge Ventosa, chairman of MB’92; Martin Bellamy, CEO of Salamanca Group; Gabriel de Sandoval, general manager of Marina Port Vell and Andor Serra, managing director Barcelona World Race.

Fundamental transformation details include:
At the conclusion of formal remarks, guests remained for an hour or more for luncheon and enjoyed the opportunity to discuss both Marina Port Vell and the BNC one-on-one.
