Having listened to feedback from our loyal delegates and trusted partners, at this year’s edition of The Superyacht Forum we have shaken up the usual format. We have streamlined our workshops sessions to four at one time, and for the first time ever, we have given each day a specific theme within the overarching theme – ‘Building For The Next Generation’.

This year’s dedicated and thorough approach to the programme will ensure all sectors of our industry are tended to. Over the course of three days, we will address what the next generation of business models will look like, how they will transform, improve and grow the industry and who will be at their helm. Central to this conversation will be the inevitability of our growing dependence on technology and how by embracing technological solutions in line with the strengthening of human capital, there are myriad benefits to be had, as well as considering the evolving consumption habits of superyacht owners and the changing ways in which they use their vessels.

We are delighted to reveal that day one of The Superyacht Forum (18th November) will be ‘The Business Day’, delivering a programme of future thinking keynotes and workshops devoted to the business of superyachts. What is the superyacht industry’s current pipeline of projects across various sectors? Who will be running our businesses in the future and how will they differ from the businesses of today? We will seek the insight and expertise of current industry CEO’s, and ask them how they are future-proofing their business, while their industry heirs will tell us what they would like to see in the next 10 – 20 years, and how they plan on making this vision a reality.

Our morning keynote will explore ‘The Art of Business’ with insights from a visionary global business leader, while our afternoon sessions will see delegates orbiting ‘The Future of Planet Superyacht’ and discussing the impact our industry has on. We will map out ‘The Future of Wealth’ and how tomorrow’s ultra-wealthy individuals will respond to and interact with luxury assets, while considering ‘The Next Generation’ of who will drive, operate, maintain and manage the ever-evolving fleet. Our ‘Next Gen Infrastructure’ session will tackle lifecycle modelling and ownership cycles.

Day one will culminate in an interactive, challenging and dynamic ‘Power Hour’ – details of which will be revealed over the coming weeks…

The Superyacht Forum has become a powerful networking opportunity for all sectors of the superyacht industry, providing the market with a unique platform to come together, share ideas and pave the way towards a strong and sustainable future. Keep an eye on SuperyachtNews as we reveal details of day two and three of The Superyacht Forum 2019…
