The first Meet the Buyer (MTB) Superyachts forum, which was earlier this month in Malta, was warmly received by the Superyacht community with participants travelling from over 15 different nations globally, including Italy, France, the Netherlands, USA and Taiwan, to participate in this unique networking event.
The forum followed the highly effective ‘MTB’ format; developed by Copland Events Ltd. MTB “Meet the Buyer” is an extremely focused programme of one-to-one appointments between Superyacht Owners/Operators, Superyacht Yards & Designers and Suppliers of Marine Equipment and Services. Alongside the meetings Copland Events also hosted lunches and dinners throughout the two days, which provided fantastic networking opportunities for all the delegates.
Fantastic feedback has been received across the board from both Suppliers and Buyers who attended the forum, with one Buyer commenting “MTB Superyachts is the best way to meet new Suppliers” she continued to “recommend MTB to each Superyacht builder in the World” (Logistic Process Coordinator, Amels Holland).
The Suppliers who joined the forum were equally impressed, commenting that MTB is the "most effective way to develop new business" (Area Sales Manager, Quick Spa Italy).
The second annual MTB “Meet the Buyer” Superyachts forum will be held in Dubrovnik – 5th-8th June 2013.
