Gulf Superyacht Summit Overview
The Gulf Superyacht Summit 2023, previously known as The International Superyacht Summit was acquired by SuperYacht Times in May 2022.
Held under the patronage of P&O Marinas, the 2-day annual event seeks to inform, assist and advise yachting clients and related interested parties, with the goal to develop the Gulf as a superyacht winter destination.
The Gulf region is of growing importance to the superyacht industry. Dubai has some of the biggest marina developments in the world and the annual Formula 1 event in Abu Dhabi attracts a large crowd of superyachts. A growing number of yachts are using the UAE as a hub from where they travel further east to places like the Seychelles, Maldives, Indonesia and Thailand.
Not only is the region establishing itself as a superyacht hub, but also Dubai aims to become the crypto capital of the world. With a lot of new wealth being created in this market sector, the region will also be of growing importance to yacht builders and brokers looking to engage with new clients.
