Celebrating 30 years

For over 30 years, The Superyacht Group has delivered events that position market-leading brands in front of our most valuable target audience. In 2022, The Superyacht Group are not only celebrating the key milestone of our 30th anniversary, but we are also gearing up for what promises to be the most monumental edition of The Superyacht Forum and programme to date.

The Industry Evolution

Taking place within the RAI, Amsterdam, The Superyacht Forum is our flagship event, and this year, we have listened to your valued feedback and put it into action, resulting in a multi-dimensional event that is focused on creating actionable takeaways, encouraging change and taking stock of where our industry is today, and its evolution.

Evolve or Repeat

Industry leaders, decision-makers and influencers from around the world will assemble, for a series of strategic meetings and workshops, focused on the overarching theme of ‘Evolve or Repeat’. The output of all these sessions will be a series of strategic reports and on-demand films that will drive a more collaborative, innovative and robust superyacht industry.

The Programme

Evolve or Repeat 

The time has come for a real Industrial Evolution and after 30 years of delivering The Superyacht Forum, the largest and most important meeting of industry leaders in the calendar, we will deliver a new style of the programme with actions and projects that will start in Amsterdam, but continue throughout the year as workshops and focus groups, that are designed to change the way we do what we do. Our mission is to stop the market from making the same mistakes or just doing what we always do. As we have highlighted, the definition of insanity, “is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” This year’s programme will bring together truly inspirational keynote speakers to challenge our industry to truly evolve for the future and do things differently.
