As a proud media partner of FLIBS 2019, SuperYacht Times will also be the official intelligence partner of the SuperYacht Village. Merijn de Waard, Founder & Director of SuperYacht Times, says: “We take a lot of pride in our intelligence work and believe that accurate and instant intelligence is very important for the superyacht business. The most renowned yachting companies have already subscribed to our intelligence platform SuperYacht Times iQ. I am therefore very happy that after the Monaco Yacht Show, we are now also the official intelligence partner of the FLIBS SuperYacht Village. Together we will make sure that the visitors of the FLIBS SuperYacht Village are informed about the true state of the market through a series of seminars and the creation of a market report”. During the course of the five-day show, SuperYacht Times will organise three seminars in the SuperYacht Village at the following times:
Wednesday 30 October 2019 at 14:00 (2 pm)
Thursday 31 October 2019 at 11:00 (11 am)
Friday 1 November 2019 at 11:00 (11 am)
