Nautic Hackathon

Open to all, the second edition of the NAUTIC HACKATHON will take place from 13 to 14 December 2019 in Hall 1. The competing teams will have to propose interesting and innovative concepts for the future of boating.


In a playful spirit, several teams of 5 to 7 people will compete for 24 hours to develop an innovative concept around the nautical universe. The theme for 2019 is as follows: let's invent the marina of tomorrow.

At the end of the exercise, each team will present its project in 5 minutes to a jury composed of professionals from the nautical world.

The NAUTIC HACKATHON will once again be run by the teams of the innovation agency Okoni


The NAUTIC HACKATHON will take place from Friday 13 December to Saturday 14 December 2019 (from 16h to 16h). At the end of the exercise and the announcement of the results, a friendly moment of exchange and sharing will be proposed.

Participants will be divided into work teams of 5 to 7 members each. Teams will be set up, as far as possible, in such a way as to be balanced in terms of profiles and skills. Registration at the NAUTIC HACKATHON is free of charge.

Specialists will be present at the event to assist participants in the development of their project.



Each participant must obligatorily:

  • Register online beforehand

The jury will evaluate the projects of all the teams and will freely select the winning team.
