The Antibes Yacht Show team has worked hard to improve the 2012 edition of the event, running from 12th to 15th April. First of all the team has been reinforced with Stéphane Trabet, who joins the team as “Commissaire Général”. Stéphane comes from the luxury hotel industry and will help the organisers in taking the next step to becoming the most important superyacht event before the start of the Mediterranean summer season and increase the number of potential buyers to the show.
At the 2012 Antibes Yacht Show there will be an area to host seminars, which is sponsored by The Superyacht Group. On Friday April 13th the International Superyacht Society (ISS), in cooperation with the Professional Yachting Association (PYA) and MYBA – The Worldwide Yachting Association, will host their well-known YACHTInfo seminar.
To maximise the media exposure for the show, there will be a Media Centre to produce live content from the show. This will be run by us at SuperYacht Company, covering the show on a daily basis with photos and articles, and our partners at YachtsXL, who will produce videos on the event.
A new late evening will take place on Friday. Exhibitors will be able to welcome their clients and visitors, to host cocktails on their stands or yachts until 9:00 pm.
On the Sunday, the last day of the show, the Antibes Yacht Show organises a Yacht Hop. The brokers will have the opportunity to present their yachts in a fun and entertaining way to other yacht brokers at the show.
And last but not least is the development of the AYS Network; an online platform for exhibitors, partners and visitors to exchange the latest news, get in touch and facilitate meetings before the show.
