We have also rebranded our conference to read as the Asia Pacific Superyacht Conference (formerly known as the Asia Pacific Yachting Conference) to more accurately reflect the focus on superyachting issues.
The 2018 programme will deliver a fresh speaker line-up of international and regional industry experts to share on wide-ranging topics spanning government policies, navigating the unique business climate in Asia, applying smarter marketing strategies and developing the region’s capabilities in superyacht refit and repair.
With the introduction of interactive rotating roundtables, live polling and increased networking opportunities, a brand-new on-site experience awaits you.
Stay tuned for the full programme which will be released in the coming months.
Review of the 2017 Conference
Asia’s number one yachting conference explored the Asia-Pacific region’s fundamental question: why is there not a greater number of superyachts cruising and chartering in the region?
Asia Pacific Yachting Conference 2017 produced a very high level of interaction between the floor and the speakers. Delegates remarked that the conversations have come closer to home. “In previous years we have heard speakers from overseas telling us ‘how to’, based solely on their own overseas experience. Now we are hearing a discussion between people versed in the nuances of Asian yachting, and the dialogue has become much more valuable."
With a growing understanding of the Asian market, small though it is, the Conference was informative, thought-provoking and inclusive - a proper forum of dialogue.
