Monaco Yacht Show
The Monaco Yacht Show will be held from 22nd to 25th September 2021 – once again with Title Sponsor Ulysse Nardin…
The presence of the Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin on the quays of Monaco’s iconic Port Hercule since 2009 is truly part of its history, intrinsically linked to marine exploration and navigation.
Ulysse Nardin is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year.
“The long marine heritage of Ulysse Nardin gives full meaning to this partnership. The Monaco Yacht Show and Ulysse Nardin share a deep respect for the sea, a passion for the beautiful art of living, a concern for precision and the search for innovation; we are therefore proud to be able to associate our name with the most important superyacht event in the world for a 12th year “, Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.
This partnership between Ulysse Nardin and the Monaco Yacht Show also reinforces their common goals to seduce customers, more modern and more audacious.
Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of MYS, is looking forward to hosting them this September in Monaco for a 2021 show that will be “resolutely focused on the extraordinary experiences at sea through superyachting”.
The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) hosts an impressive and truly international fleet of superyachts available for purchase or charter.
The MYS also showcases a selection of companies with ties to the yachting and luxury markets. Stands are reserved for superyacht builders and designers, yacht brokers, and the providers of tenders, nautical gadgets and water toys, luxury brands, high-end cars and motorbikes, helicopters and private jets.
The Monaco Yacht Show has been attracting a wealthy international clientele of yacht owners, and executives from the superyacht and luxury markets, since 1991.
For four glorious days, the crème de la crème soaks up the festive and glamorous atmosphere of the Principality of Monaco, enjoying a unique superyachting experience on the quays of Monaco’s Port Hercule, and exploring current and future yachting trends.
The Monaco Yacht Show is organised under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Designed to rise to the commercial and marketing challenges facing the market, by promoting the superyacht lifestyle to a new set of wealthy clients.
The keenly awaited Monaco Yacht Show will be driven more powerfully than ever by the superyacht clientele; it will offer a bespoke experience of unparalleled prestige.
Clearer visitor profiles for tailor-made experiences
There will be 3 categories of visitor, each with its own badge. The “Discover” badge will be reserved for yacht clients; their advisors and consultants will wear an “Advise” badge; trade visitors, meanwhile, will be recognised thanks to a “Connect” badge.
Superyacht and tender exhibition in the Dockside Area
One of the advantages of the new badge system will be to enhance the flow of visitors on the quaysides; it will be easier for private visitors to board the superyachts and luxury tenders. On Wednesday 22 September, the Dockside Area will be open to “Discover” and “Advise” badges only, so that these categories of visitor can meet with shipyards, yacht brokers, designers or tender manufacturers in a more intimate and personalised environment. From Thursday onwards, the Dockside Area will be open to all participants.
Premium services for superyacht clients
The MYS official VIP visit programme, the Sapphire Experience, features a programme of activities in the show and in Monaco for superyacht owners, charterers and future clients.
VIPs will be plunged into the world of superyachting from the moment they arrive at the Show. Two new first-class VIP entrances will be located near the Upper Deck Lounge (exhibition space for the show’s luxury partners) and close to the Yacht Club de Monaco.
Starting this year, visitors will discover new sections dedicated to innovative projects and trends in sailing, design and exploration, and the programme is set to grow over coming years, expanding the range of activities that reflect life on board a superyacht. The MYS will also rename its various exhibition areas, identifying each distinct theme to make it easier for visitors to find their way around.
Making sure the right visitor meets the right exhibitor
A future buyer will be interested in meeting with designers and builders, whereas the buyer’s consultant or captain may well prefer to discuss with equipment manufacturers and luxury companies.
Making the right match will be simpler now thanks to a new way of registering for the Show: the profile of each visitor is identified in advance, generating the appropriate badge. The MYS will also offer digital solutions to foster interactions between visitors and exhibitors whilst at the Show – and throughout the year.
By placing the final superyacht client at its very heart, the revamped version of the MYS aims to win over new audiences from other high-end spheres beyond yachting, thus building on the marketing strategy deployed over recent years.
Informa’s main priority is obviously to safeguard the health of participants at the Show and thus provide a safe and serene experience. The 2021 MYS will therefore implement all necessary health measures, guided by its AllSecure programme and health regulations issued by Monaco’s government.
