With 19 Global Superyacht Forums (GSF) behind us, and last year's edition widely hailed as the best ever, the 20th anniversary of GSF promises to go above and beyond. In order to do so, we've consulted experts at the top of their field both within our industry, and those we've worked hard to build relationships with from related sectors.

While the finer details of keynote presentations and speakers will remain under wraps for now, the content and topics up for discussion have been released to ensure you can make the most of your time in Amsterdam. This year's daily programme will include keynote addresses delivered in the conference room, a plethora of breakout sessions running in smaller rooms to stimulate wider debate, and the introduction of new Q&A sessions over lunch to give you up close and personal access to expert advice from captains, lawyers and class societies. This is in addition to the many networking opportunities, unrivalled social events and FACE2FACE networking opportunities returning for the second year.

The morning sessions will consist of keynote addresses from leading lights across the globe, discussing their projects, industry methods and how they are inspiring change and growth in their own sectors, and hopefully re-inject some into our own. Breakout sessions will examine the larger technical issues the industry is facing at the moment, from shipyard and refit issues, to what's new in the world of AV/IT and Communications. Delegates will be able to choose the topics most important to them and then get involved during these sessions by taking on a more active role. Afternoon panel discussions will see CEOs debate a variety of topics, from outside brokerage perspectives and owners investing in the industry, to high-end luxury marketeers discussing meeting the demands of the modern UHNW client. No matter what topic, speaker or format you're looking for, this year's GSF will provide you with a wealth of options and possibilities.
