Superyacht UK Makes Waves at Monaco Yacht Show 2012
Published on 27/9/2012
Monaco Yacht Show 2012 not only saw an increase in numbers visiting the Superyacht UK (SYUK) Pavilion but also an increase in networking and business opportunities for members. The GREAT campaign themed members lounge was well received by all.
A huge amount of noise was created around the show by the UK companies present, with Princess Yachts showcasing their new 40m Imperial Princess fresh from her launch at Cannes, Oceanstyle by Burgess’s exciting new rebranding and a BBC Correspondent was spotted dockwalking!
In the Darse Sud, the SYUK coffee bar worked flat out with visitors in a constant flow and our pavilion exhibitors hosting clients. The annual Superyacht UK Champagne Reception was a huge success with over 200 guests filling the SYUK Pavilion from 5.30pm on the Thursday.
Albert Levy, SYUK Chairman welcomed guests and introduced Paul Coley of the MCA who launched the much anticipated LY3 Code at the reception.
SYUK Pavilion Exhibitor, Michael Smillie of Luminart, specialist superyacht lighting company commented: "For us this year’s show has been an enormous success, helped greatly by the fantastic assistance from the dedicated SYUK team."
Patricia Slavin the Managing Director of Affinity, a UK based Yacht Management service and SYUK Pavilion Exhibitor commented: "This has been an excellent show, well organised by SYUK who provide a great, friendly and efficient service."
Coming away from the show the overall consensus was one of optimism, one which was reinforced in a two part news feature on BBC South this week highlighting SYUK members. Alastair Fee, BBC, interviewed and filmed with Heirlooms, Design Unlimited, Warsash Superyacht Academy, Sunseeker and Dubois as well as talking with members such as UKSA regarding the industry overall and future opportunities.
The 2013 MYS planning has already begun with SYUK’s involvement in the show hoping to bigger and better, if you are interested in exhibiting please contact Abigail Lamb to register your interest email@example.com or call 01784 233641
