Over the past few months, we have been reaching out to the various sectors that combine to create ‘Planet Superyacht’ to ensure our programme caters to every member of the industry.
From 12-14 May, not only will TSDF 2020 open up discussions regarding how our industry is using the Earth’s resources differently when considering an increasingly ethical future for superyacht design, but also how the industry is giving back. We will look at the ways in which the industry is aiding scientific breakthroughs, large-scale research projects, and providing assistance when natural disasters strike.
This year’s Superyacht Design Forum will champion originality, explore individuality and discuss the idea of unique concepts and what the future holds in terms of design, engineering and next generation projects. With over 150 design studios worldwide all focused on superyachts, combined with a declining list of shipyards building new and exciting projects that equate to approximately one project per studio per annum, the time has come to discuss and debate what the future landscape looks like and how designers and architects can be different and stand out in the crowd.
We will consider the operational criteria like energy consumption, material sourcing, reusability, sustainability and the circular economy, where the designer has to think about the project from a purposeful perspective. Removing the phrase ‘conspicuous consumption’ and focusing on the positive impact and contribution to the world that a project can make, taking inspiration from peer industries with similar objectives.
