Video: An insight into building a stand at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018

By Katia Damborsky   3 October 2018

A new video follows the team at Heesen shipyard as they give us an exclusive glimpse into the preparation that went in to the Monaco Yacht Show 2018.

The Monaco Yacht Show 2018 may be behind us, but a new video from Dutch shipyard Heesen gives us a peak into the behind-the-scenes action of the show. Highlighting the amount of preparation that goes into the event, members of the team explain how they organise their time and assemble the stand.

Heesen's Event Co-Ordinator, Linda van Herpen, explains how the event is organised.  As soon as the Monaco Yacht Show closes its doors, plans for the following year's edition will get underway.

The yachting event is an important opportunity for shipyards to showcase their latest launches, as well as new designs and innovative technologies, so it's crucial plans are put in place well in advance.

By April, the entire event season will be finalised and shipyards will have a clear picture of what yachts will be attending the prestigious show. From here, they can then begin planning the finer details.

In the weeks leading up to the Monaco Yacht Show, stand builders will start to assemble the stalls where the exhibitors will be based. Taking more than 280 hours of elbow grease and over a week to erect, it's clear the Heesen stand was a labour of love.

The finished result was a stand which gleamed, with the Heesen logo and motto emblazoned on the frontage. As ever, the stand featured models of the yachts currently being built at the shipyard and they were shown off to visitors taking a look around.

In the video, Robert Drontmann, Heesen's Sales Manager, also explains the process that Heesen and other shipyards go through when taking clients and guests on tours around their yachts, with one-hour slots available for clients or their brokers.

Heesen's popular charter yacht IRISHA, who recently scooped up an award at the Cannes World Yacht Trophies, also makes an appearance in the video.

Set against the beautiful backdrop of Monaco, the video allows viewers to get a real feel for the atmosphere in Port Hercules.
