Four months before the event from September 27-30, the Monaco Yacht Show confirmed that 87% of exhibiting companies have renewed their participation and about 40 superyachts delivered in 2017 have been registered and will make their debuts in Monaco among the 125 vessels presented on the water.
On September 26th, the second edition of the Monaco yacht Summit will welcome a delegation of new hand-picked visitors. The day will take the form of workshop discussions deliberately restricted to a clearly-identified audience of people interested in purchasing or managing a superyacht (participation by invitation only).
In the evening 400 guests – top managers of yachting companies and private clients – will be invited to the opening ceremony of the MYS, which will also incorporate the Show's fourth yachting awards ceremony.
These two events organised on the eve of the Monaco Yacht Show are part of a premium visit program exclusively designed for final buyers of superyachts: the Sapphire Experience. Launched in 2014 for limited numbers (100 people), the Sapphire Experience offers a concierge service to plan the stay of the Show's premium clients or organise private visits to the superyachts officially participating in the Show, in coordination with the exhibiting brokers and shipyards.
After three years of construction work on the Darse Nord of Port Hercules, the MYS will return to this totally redeveloped zone to install a new Quai Albert Ier tent.
1800m² of air-conditioned exhibition space offering a natural route for visitors between the Parvis Piscine tent (Upper Deck Lounge exit) and the Boulevard Kennedy exhibition quays (from Quai Jarlanto Jetée Lucciana).
On Quai Antoine Ier, reconfiguration of the zone will create a new epicentre for activities in the Show: as well as the pavilion of the Dutch exhibitors HISWA there will be a new exhibition area devoted to the superyachting lifestyle: the Starboard.
Other facilities offered here to visitors and exhibitors include a cafe-restaurant with a terrace, a lounge where they can consult international yachting and lifestyle magazines, the MYS official press centre and private meeting rooms (free of charge, for exhibiting companies only).
Quai Antoine Ier is also the location of the Car Deck - a presentation, launched in 2016, of fifteen or so luxury vehicles with some models available for test drives - and the Tenders & Toys Show, where some of the trendiest nautical accessories on the market will be visible on the quay or afloat.
Following the results of a survey of exhibitors conducted by the MYS at the end of the 2016 Show, transport services too will be improved: the routes of the boat shuttles and golf carts will be more clearly identified, the official MYS App will offer more practical functions for location of access to transport, and more direction signs will be installed on site. A pontoon connecting the Central T to the Quai Antoine will provide faster pedestrian access to the Car Deck or the Starboard.
