This year’s Global Superyacht Forum focuses on an interactive and innovative experience for all delegates to engage and debate the future of superyachts. Last month we announced the new addition to this year’s programme: Innov*8. This session gives eight brands the unique opportunity to introduce a new and exclusive concept or prototype to the Global Superyacht Forum audience. However, there is a twist, the eight companies only have four minutes to present their idea.

Hundreds of top companies applied and after the hard task of choosing the most dynamic, we are happy to announce the following representatives that will take to the stage next week.

BMT Nigel Gee’s Rob Sime will take to the stage to discuss their newest innovation for yachts.

Dutch designer Cor D Rover will present a yet-to-be released patented product in his four-minute presentation.

Ian Langham and James O’Callaghan of Eckersley O’Callaghan, following their huge success at SuperyachtDESIGN week, will provide a technical presentation for the GSF audience.

MTN Communications will discuss the current trends and future of technology, along with their new generation technology. 

Throughout Palladium’s presentation, Michael Blake will examine human’s relationship with technology and how new products can help improve this.

Babak Esfahani, Managing Director of Plejd will ask, “How smart is your yacht?” and introduce the audience to a fresh concept of control systems.
VBH’s Xavier Gruselle will discuss the development of their innovative software within the yachting industry. 

Finally, Marnix Hoekstra of Vripack Design will unveil a revolutionary way for building boats in the future.

Prepare to be inspired!
