The Innovation Lounge is an exciting new addition to the programme at The Superyacht Forum 2017, taking place 13 - 16 November in Amsterdam.

The Superyacht Forum has a new streamlined concept, combining all our major annual events into one (The Global Superyacht Forum, SuperyachtDESIGN Week, Superyacht Management Meeting, Make Your Mark and The Superyacht Owner’s Summit). The Innovation Lounge adds an interactive, forward-thinking space within the larger event.

With The Superyacht Forum being the industry’s most effective event to network, educate and exchange quality information, the Innovation Lounge will be designed as an interactive gallery of ideas for delegates to engage, explore and meet the minds behind the innovation partners.

The Lounge will be a showcase of ideas from up to 10 innovators, all who will present the latest technical, creative, operational and design products to the market. Delegates will then be able to discuss application and functionalities of the ideas brought forward.

As within the pages of The Superyacht Report, the event will exhibit a range of products for the superyacht market. To ensure that the Lounge highlights the different sectors of the market and creates a dynamic and intriguing space, innovators will exhibit ideas from, (but are not limited) the following selection of categories: Software, Lighting, Exterior Materials, Interior Materials, Paint, AV/Entertainment, Technical, Engineering & Systems, Security, Safety and Propulsion.

By introducing these new features, The Superyacht Forum will expand the audience matrix, creating more business models and opportunities, which in turn will create a stronger platform to build a better marketplace. Delegates will explore new concepts, and create connections with influencers and decision-makers from across the different realms of the market.

As we look to the next 10 years of the industry, we ask, how are we future-proofing business models, adapting to the current trends and customer demands and needs?  The Innovation Lounge will delve into these ideas and showcase the current innovators who are preparing for the next steps for the industry.

At The Superyacht Forum, we want to ensure that the industry continues to grow, and by providing the space and opportunity for ideas to be explored we can help to continuously improve this market, bringing in new ideas.  

The Superyacht Forum will take place from 13 - 16 November 2017 in Amsterdam. To find out more and to register as a delegate, click here. If you have a product you would like to showcase in The Innovation Lounge, please contact Jonny Sutton, by emailing
