During the four days of ‘Convergence’, the main objective will be to analyse the most important recent technological innovations added to the Group's yachts by exploring their functions, how they work and the maintenance needs.

Some of Ferretti Group’s leading technology partners will host many of the technical seminars, including Man, Anieri Tonissi, Rina and Side Power.

The event will also include formal training and a number of team-building activities, bringing together around 100 Captains and chief engineers from all around the world. All this will consolidate the feeling of being part of the Group and reiterate its commitment to supporting seagoing professionals.

“It’s a pleasure to be organising this strategic event once again,” says Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “The ultimate goal is to help our captains and engineers keep abreast of what’s new, as they play a vital role in safeguarding the success of our pleasure vessels. The comeback of 'Convergence' is a tangible sign of our management team’s focus on training and innovation. We hope to continue organising the event once a year. It is not only an important and useful occasion for captains to get together, but also a part of a wider and global strategy aimed at the ongoing development of the Group’s know-how. 'Convergence' is yet another way for Ferretti Group to provide a concrete response to the demands of an increasingly complex and competitive global market.”
