Following this year’s successful events in Antibes and Palma de Mallorca, CrewShow – the only trade exhibition focused exclusively on professional yacht crew – announces its first Caribbean event: CrewShow- St Maarten. The new show is scheduled for Saturday, January 9, 2010, at Yacht Club at Isle de Sol, an Island Global Yachting (IGY) marina.
The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals (TSGYP) have signed on to sponsor this exciting inaugural event. “The quality of the crew is just as important as the quality of the yacht when it comes to successful luxury yacht vacations,” said Jennifer M. Saia, The Sacks Group President and Charter Specialist. “This show will help crew to find the tools they need to do their jobs better – as well as giving us a new place to introduce them to some of services we offer, together with our new Strategic Alliance marketing partner, IMA Yachts.”
CrewShow founder Celia Wagstaff will host the new event together with Brian Deher, IGY Marina Manager for Yacht Club Isle de Sol. “The show runs from morning to evening at one of the best venues on the island,” said Celia. “Anyone interested in attending should mark the date and ensure they are part of what promises to be one of the Caribbean’s most talked-about events in 2010.”
Strategic support for CrewShow St Maarten also will be provided by Ann E. McHorney, who heads TSGYP’s Caribbean division and runs Select Yachts NV, another show sponsor. McHorney will provide her staff and office in Plaza del Lago, Simpson Bay, for use as the headquarters of CrewShow St Maarten.
“I am really excited at the prospect of bringing CrewShow to the Caribbean, especially with Brian and Ann E. on the team providing local knowledge and expertise,” Celia said.
