TSF: Connect themes announced! Designed to inspire a streamlined three days of networking, discussions and debates…

Under the TSF: Connect banner, The Superyacht Forum 2023 promises to provide even more networking than before, connecting you with industry colleagues, suppliers and clients across the superyacht sector.

The 2023 edition offers a more streamlined three days, each built around this year's themes of Owner, Ocean and Open. The programme will present one keynote speaker per day along with panellists from outside the industry, bringing insights and experiences to help our industry drive forward. 

Each of the three days will have its own unifying theme to link together the opening keynote presentation, fuel the debate in the follow-up workshops, the new Connect interactive networking, and closing out the day with the keynote debate. 

These three themes are based on three vital elements of what superyachting is all about and will involve delegates directly in exploring opportunities to drive excellence and deliver ever-improved performance.

One of the most memorable wake-up calls in Forum history, Extinction Rebellion crash the stage in 2022 

Day One: Owner

To open The Forum we will be hosting the owner of a boundary-pushing superyacht that is embarking on a challenging programme. With owners as the clients sitting at the centre of all we do, it is pertinent to explore their interests, wealth trends, the economics of ownership and how we can share the owner experience with new and prospective clients.

Day Two: Ocean

Shifting the focus from broad sustainability to the space where superyachts operate is a natural progression for TSF.  We will dive into the fundamentals of the environmental impact of yachting and how that is perceived, as well as seek out ways that superyachts are already operating more in sync with the oceans and making a positive impact through scientific research and philanthropy. 

Day Three: Open

What is Open?  At one level it is the Open-Source approach, which we discussed in 2022, about how data and information can be more readily shared. We will look at some of the innovative projects already adopting this philosophy and the stakeholders that have pioneered them. As we sit at the cusp of an AI-driven revolution, we also hope to provide some novel approaches that may open our industry to new talent, new clients and new modes of operation.  

At the end of TSF: Connect 2023 we anticipate all delegates will be better informed, more inspired and ultra-connected.  Don’t miss out – get your ticket early, before they‘re sold out.
