Following overwhelming feedback, we bought back to London, with a new two-day format and new name, The Superyacht Design Forum (formerly SuperyachtDESIGN Week). The event was hosted on the 26th and 27th June 2018 with our partners Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. With their diverse mix of cool and luxurious showrooms, coupled with some new interactive spaces, we delivered an event that inspired, informed, and ultimately encouraged innovation and next generation thinking. The Superyacht Design Forum sat in the calendar between the summer season magnets of Royal Ascot and Wimbledon Tennis Championships and overlapped with Masterpiece 2018, one of the world’s most exclusive Art and Antiques events, each one attracting UHNW clients from around the world. This combination ensured The Superyacht Design Forum at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour was a new interactive addition to the early summer superyacht calendar.
The Superyacht Design Forum provided anyone in the superyacht design world with a unique opportunity to explore new thinking, share smarter solutions, create ideas that are fresh and inspiring and generate an energy that will drive the future of superyachts. The event sought to better understand the way our future customers’ experience, enjoy and explore their lifestyles on the ocean. This was not a Forum full of long talks and listening, but a completely immersive experience, with interactive concepts, wacky workshops, fish bowl chats, firesides, round tables, drink tanks and tea talks, all designed to encourage everyone attending to share their ideas, opinions and solutions to creating a next generation superyacht. It was fun, different and entertaining! So head over to the post-event page to register your interest for The Superyacht Design Forum 2019.
