Organizers for the Monaco Yacht Show have confirmed the event will go ahead in 2021 after last year’s COVID-19 induced cancellation.
Event organizers for the Monaco Yacht Show 2021 have confirmed this year’s event will go ahead, following the cancellation of the 2020 show due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking place from September 22-25, The Informa Group, owner of the Monaco Yacht Show, has revealed the format for this year’s show will look different from previous years as various COVID-19 safety protocols are applied across all areas of the show.
The Informa Group also took advantage of the postponement of the 2020 Show to work closely with the yachting industry for feedback to assist with redesigning the event.
The Monaco Yacht Show 2021 will also introduce clearer visitor profiles (with an easily recognizable badge system) for tailor-made experiences. The three new three categories of visitors include:
The “Discover” badge for yacht clients;
The “Advise” badge for advisors and consultants
The “Connect” badge for trade visitors
The new badge system will enhance the flow of visitors on the quaysides and allow private visitors to board the superyachts and luxury tenders more easily.
On Wednesday, 22 September, the Dockside Area will be open to “Discover” and “Advise” badges only so that these categories of visitors can meet with shipyards, yacht brokers, designers, or tender manufacturers in a more intimate and personalized environment.
From Thursday onwards, the Dockside Area will be open to all participants.
This year, visitors will discover new sections dedicated to innovative projects, sailing trends, design, and exploration. Various exhibition areas will also be renamed to make it easier for visitors to find their way around the show.
The Informa Group hopes that the show’s new format will foster better interactions between visitors and exhibitors while at the show and enable the right match between buyers, designers, builders, consultants, and captains.
