We have developed a brand new session on day two of this year's Global Superyacht Forum designed to give the floor to eight very clever ideas or innovations that are likely to shape the future.

Innov*8 is an incredible opportunity for eight individuals, manufacturers, suppliers, studios, shipyards or students to deliver one of eight, dynamic four minute pitches to the Global Superyacht Forum audience with a fresh, brand new or intelligent idea, in an engaging, rapid and witty way.

It promises to be entertaining and engaging!

So, if you have an idea, a concept, a product, an R & D idea, a solution or some software and think you can impress and inspire the great and the good from the upper management tier of the superyacht market, contact Rebecca Taylor – rebeccat@thesuperyachtgroup.com with a very brief 100 word description of your Innov*8 entry.

Please submit your entries by Tuesday 28th October, 17:00GMT and the programme team will choose the most interesting eight entries and we will give you one of the most powerful launch platforms in the market.
