Global Superyacht Forum shows off ravishing refit

by ISS on 19 Sep 2011
..
It’s been radically rethought, undergone a fundamental facelift and received a new, contemporary look brochure. Now the Global Superyacht Forum 2011 (GSF), the must-attend industry event of the year, is ready to display all these exciting new changes at its location at the Amsterdam RAI from 14 to 16 November 2011.

GSF will reflect the changes the industry wants to see owing to months of research from forum hosts and organisers, Superyacht Events. Consulting with top industry luminaries, Superyacht Events took time to learn how GSF could change to be the best it’s ever been. The result is a refreshed and packed programme of new styles of debate, amazing keynote speeches and one on one interviews.

Of the new changes visible, delegates will enjoy three new types of session:

* Bite-sized new-technology sessions. Digestible solutions to benefit the industry through increased efficiency or compliance with future regulations

* Panel debates on core topics. Pre-chosen topics will invite questions from the audience; with the best ones selected for a live debate

* One on one interviews. We have invited three industry luminaries with decades of experience between them to step into the spotlight where Martin Redmayne will play interview host

Other highlights of the new look GSF include The Chairman’s Opening Address. In this scene setting speech the audience will hear never before published results from the Superyacht Intelligence Agency’s Global Economic Impact Survey. Figures will show the exact impact of the industry on the global economy. Educating and engaging new clients is another lead item on the agenda as solutions for securing new owners from the pool of uninitiated UHNWIs will be offered. Then in ‘Question Time – Build practices’, vital issues surrounding the new build and refit of a yacht will be discussed.

GSF takes place at the Amsterdam RAI alongside the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) giving delegates access to a thriving superyacht equipment trade show as well as the 1,000 plus marine trade exhibitors. The SuperYacht Pavilion at METS, is dedicated solely to superyacht businesses.

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) has a membership-driven mandate to continually promote initiatives of real value to the large yacht industry and is dependent on both membership and sponsorship revenue to support and implement significant programs toward this end.

It is with this in mind that ISS is pleased to announce that perennial supporter, The Yacht Report Group, is again sponsoring the ISS Awards for Design and Leadership in 2011 and has made the following information available regarding its Global Superyacht Forum (GSF) being held from 14 to 16 November in Amsterdam. Both functions accomplish critical ISS objectives in providing educational, networking and recognition platforms to further the ‘good of the industry’.
