What is Material Xperience?

Material Xperience is entirely dedicated to inspirational and innovative materials for yacht building. The exhibition has something to offer for everyone; from creative director to technician and trendwatcher to manufacturer. 

The yacht industry is a specific one, with its own history of materials and techniques. However, there is much inspiration to be found and lessons to be learned from developments in others sectors. Digital techniques such as 3D printing, the use of smart materials, recycled materials and biobased materials are amply represented in our “Floating Future” exhibition. 3D printed surfaces, origami textiles, luxurious leather, acoustic and fireproof metals, panels made from seagrass, and tiles of recycled plastic from the ocean are just some examples of the wealth of innovative materials that can be found here. 

Why visit?


As part of the Construction Material Pavilion (CMP), Materia’s partners and experts from around the world showcase innovative materials for the maritime industry. Our goal is to inspire marine architects, designers, and shipbuilders with innovative and experimental materials that can be used in boat and yacht building.
