The prime object of the Clúster’s promotional activities is acquiring new members and constituting a critical mass that can strengthen its positioning.

attract other relevant players in the sector – ship owners and captains, users, visitors, tourists, etc. In short, all those people who participate, work or use nautical services and products, or that have to make decisions about choosing between one destination or another.
