In 2018, we explored, debated and developed the theme The Perfect Customer Journey where every stage in the process of ownership was discussed and analysed in order to optimize and improve the journey. In 2019, we examined the subject matter Building for the Next Generation.
The Superyacht Forum 2019 promised to shake up the current event sphere, taking inspiration and direction from the ever-influential next generation of leaders within and external to the superyacht industry. Our workshop sessions were streamlined to four at one time, and our thorough approach to the programme ensured all sectors of the superyacht industry were tended to.
Over the course of three days, we addressed what the next generation of what business models will look like, how they will transform, improve and grow the industry: The Superyacht Forum 2019, kicked off with 'The Business Day' (Monday 18th November), followed by 'The Owner Day' (Tuesday 19th November), and culminating with ‘The Technology Day’ (20th November).
Day one, ‘The Business Day’, delivered a programme of future thinking keynotes and workshops devoted to the business of superyachts.
Day two, 'The Owner Day', delivered multi-generational perspectives on business ownership, while outlining how industry leaders and their relatives are planning their succession, and fortifying their businesses for the future. We had a star-studded panel, including the young and older generations of the de Vries family from Feadship, Dr Mohammed Al Barwani and his Son Usama Al Barwani from Oceanco.
And day three, ‘The Technology Day’, comprised the symbiosis of leaders in technology at the forefront of their fields and how the developments within these peer industries could realistically be applied to yachts of the future.
