Monaco Yacht Show Set to Grow
Already one of the world’s biggest superyacht events, the Monaco Yacht Show is set to grow even more after entering into a strategic agreement with two key partners.
The partnership between the Monaco Yacht Show, the Yacht Club de Monaco and Monaco Harbours Management Company (S.E.P.M.) is designed to boost the yachting industry in Monaco and will see a myriad of new opportunities available to the popular luxury yacht charter destination.
The largest developments will include an increase in the number of superyachts Monaco will be able to accommodate. As a direct result of this, the annual Monaco Yacht Show will be assigned a further 15 berths next year, three of which will be for yachts between 90 and 120 meters in length, and a further three for yachts over 100 metres on the breakwater from 2015. This will help boost the berthing capacities of the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show by up to 147 in total for both yachts and tenders.
Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the Monaco Yacht Show, spoke about the new partnership, saying, “Peter Rigby, CEO of Informa Group, and I are delighted by this new partnership with S.E.P.M. and the Yacht Club of Monaco... We have been in discussions with Aleco Keusseoglou, President of S.E.P.M., and Bernard d’Alessandri, General Secretary of the YCM for many years about how we can develop yachting in Monaco further, and it became a natural and obvious step for the three of us to formally join forces to pursue the same goal... The high concentration of industry professionals and clients here underlines the potential for the industry to continue to grow in the future and remain a long‐term source of prestige for Monaco. It confirms, beyond doubt, that Monaco remains the international hub for superyachts.”
Founded in 1991 as a brokerage-oriented yacht show, today the Monaco Yacht Show has 500 major companies exhibiting and more than 100 superyachts on display.
This is significant in highlighting the great importance of Monaco for yachting, as well as that of yachting for Monaco - Gaëlle Tallarida
