The Turkish Yachting & Brokers Association has announced the first ever TYBA Yacht Charter Show which will be taking place in the Yalikavak Marina in Bodrum, Muğla, between 3rd-6th May this year.
The inaugural TYBA Yacht Charter Show aims to bring a fresh face to the yearly charter show event in Turkey for trade professionals and aims to represent the best selection of commercial, crewed charter yachts in the region.
Already proving to be a popular show, Güneş Aysun, the TYBA Yacht Charter Show President announced that, "As of today, we have almost reached our full capacity for our 1st Yacht Charter Show at Yalikavak Marina (ex Palmarina Bodrum). The increasing list of attending brokers and attending yachts promises us a successful first show.'"
The organisation behind the show, TYBA, was established in April 2017 and represents the majority of yachting professionals in Turkey. As for the show itself, various seminars will be held in order to familiarise visitors with Turkey as a destination, focusing too on the variety of yacht types which operate out of Turkey, including locally built Gulets.
Of course, the TYBA Yacht Charter Show will also feature the packed social calendar you would expect from a charter show, including opening cocktails, a yacht hop, a gala dinner and more, with more details being announced soon.
Güneş Aysun, the TYBA Yacht Charter Show President said, "I welcome all participants to the 1st TYBA Yacht Charter Show in Yalikavak Marina. I am confident that this new show organised by TYBA among many other initiatives we are takng will serve well to refresh Turkey's image in international yachting as well as raise national standards and make this an even more exciting and pleasant destination for all."
