OUR LATEST EVENTS
Yacht Fuel Services addressed the superyacht industry to evaluate the
challenges facing fuel suppliers at a special breakfast meeting, staged
during the Global Superyacht Forum 2012. Invited delegates advertised the event one day prior to attending, with branded lanyards, each containing a USB embedded with the company brochure. Delegates arrived at 9am to a breakfast of fresh pastries, fruit and coffee, before taking their seats at round tables to learn about Yacht Fuel Services and their expertise in the field. With a pre-event survey offering the chance for questions to be addressed, a panel of four raised pertinent issues in the field of fuel and lubricants, as well as providing answers to some last-minute questions from later attendees. The relaxed format allowed delegates to network amongst themselves and with the team at Yacht Fuel Services, both over breakfast and post-event. Those who were unable to attend on the day were later sent information about the company, and provided with a contact to send their queries to. PG Legal returned to Monaco Yacht Show this year to host they’re annual breakfast meeting on Thursday 21st September– this year however, they were joined by Tempest Legal Services bringing an extra knowledge from the Monegasque market with them. This year’s session was entitled: Riding the Wave: Tax & The Law, the views of Italy and Monaco. The fortunate invitees were to a joint presentation from the partners broaching such topics as: the legal implications of charter and the new governing laws concerning the Italian coastline. The chosen venue for 2012 was the Hotel Metropole, which laid on a sumptuous breakfast – guests enjoyed enormous fruit platters and plenty of continental meats and cheeses. They were then invited to network amongst themselves and also to follow up on any questions that the partners had not yet covered. It was another successful event for PG Legal and the addition of the Tempest Legal Services team added another dimension to the proceedings which attendees found insightful and valuable. The Superyacht Events Agency were delighted to repeat Marina Port Vell's 2011 press conference, for the 2012 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show. Following the success of the previous year, this latest event saw an audience almost double the size, of the finest journalists and most respected government figureheads from Barcelona.
Convening on the Port Wall, with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, yachts and exhibitors, guests were welcomed with champagne and shade from the midday sun. Networking amongst themselves as they waited to be addressed, it was the perfect opportunity for the Barcelona City Council and the Port of Catalan to unveil The Barcelona Nautical Cluster, of which Marina Port Vell is a founding member. The announcement would put Barcelona on the map as a key landmark in the nautical industry and in the world, and with over 120 journalists present, news of the Cluster was sure to travel fast.
Following a presentation and question time whilst seated under a canopy, guests discussed the announcement over a tasty buffet lunch and open bar. Taking place mid-way through the show and hosting an impressive crowd, the event enabled Marina Port Vell to become a hot topic at one of the busiest yacht shows of year. The Superyacht Group were pleased to announce in March 2012, the
launch of a new website designed exclusively for superyacht owners. From
this was born the need for a launch event to introduce the brand to the
industry. The Superyacht Events Agency organised the day from
start to finish, to the brief of 55 VIP clients attending a presentation
by company Chairman, Martin H Redmayne. There were drinks and nibbles
for the delegates, along with copies of the new magazines and other
company literature. Held at the View Rooms in Altitude, London, plasma screens around the venue showed
how the website (open only to members) has been designed. Clients were
able to pose their burning questions to Mr. Redmayne, and all gained a
strong feel for the brand, and the opportunities it will provide for
owners and their businesses. A breakfast meeting with Tribos during this year’s Global Superyacht Forum, provided the perfect chance for this coatings specialist to meet with current and potential clients, to present their brand and product range. Organised by the Superyacht Events Agency, the meet ran during registration of day two at the Global Superyacht Forum, ensuring delegates would not miss either event. As well as providing a continental spread for their guests, Tribos ran a competition for all attendees to win a free car treatment, at an approximate value of £499.00. With a turnout which included captains, shipyards and some of the leading paint companies in the industry, Tribos were able to present to a full house as well as continue discussions with individual clients after the official conclusion.

New Yacht Design Partnership Launched a Monaco Yacht Show Event A breakfast meeting on new concepts in yacht design proved to be an unusual yet popular way for many key industry players to start their Friday morning at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Hosted by the partnership of Impossible Productions Ink and Vuyk Engineering, the team presented their new ipi90 yacht design, which is highly innovative and relevant to all interested in the design side of the superyacht industry. Organised by the Superyacht Events Agency, the breakfast meeting was a unique occasion for shipyards, designers and brokers to gather together, view the new designs, exchange experiences and network. The key topic of the meeting, held at Le Virage on Friday 23rd September, was on the concept of including extreme experimentation into yacht design, but making these highly refined and realizable through architecture. Veronika Schmid, Co-owner of Impossible Productions Ink said, “Over the past 12 years we have studied at some of the foremost schools of architecture, and combining this with advanced computer techniques and digital fabrication means we can create unique yet classic designs for superyachts. Impossible Productions Ink and Vuyk Engineering Groningen B.V. are collaborating on the ipi90 yacht concept. Impossible Productions Ink LLC is based in Manhattan, New York. The multidisciplinary design office specializes in the fields of yacht design, architecture, urban design & product design.

A sell out event on the latest developments in Italian tax and legal issues proved yet again that these matters are still at the forefront of the superyacht industry. Returning to Monaco Yacht Show for the second year in a row, the yachting team at Puopolo, Geffers, Iacobelli & Partners (PGI) held their highly popular breakfast meeting on Italian tax and legal issues at the stunning Hermitage Hotel on Wednesday 21 September 2011. Organised by the Superyacht Events Agency, guests were all interested in discussing the issues surrounding the understanding and use of the Italian yachting tax regulation in force, and included some of the industry’s top minds in law, brokerage, insurance and banking. Yet again, the topics were highly debated. Delegates discussed the idea that in times of deep financial crisis, as a first resort, States try to increase their cash flow by claiming higher taxes. In such a scenario, yachts owners – sometimes seen as tax evaders - are usually one of the first categories of taxpayers hit by interested harsh fiscal measures. Gianfranco Puopolo, partner at PGI believes that subsequently, the latest developments of European law as well as of domestic law in France, Italy and the UK and the decisions of the European Court of Justice can make things more complex or easier, depending on your point of view.
