Superyacht Forum

When? 14-16 November

Where? RAI Amsterdam

Our yachting team members, Kate Shaw and Emma Hill from the Isle of Man and Malta will be attending The Superyacht Forum this November in Amsterdam. The event will host over 800 delegates at this event, for a series of debates, keynotes and workshops to present the latest developments in the sector.

Here they will meet with our close intermediaries from around the globe and form valuable relationships to present our bespoke services in the yachting sector.

We hear from both Kate and Emma Hill on their thoughts on the event;

“We will be attending The Superyacht Forum in Amsterdam from 14-16 November and are looking forward to celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Superyacht Group. This event is a great opportunity for us to attend keynote sessions/ workshops delivered by industry leaders and also join topical discussions with other industry professionals; as the 2022 Summer season comes to a close. The theme this year is “Evolve or Repeat” and the programme is allowing time for an abundance of focus groups, workshops and new ‘power networking’ sessions which we are very excited to be a part of!” – Emma Hill, Senior Client Administrator.

“This year’s Superyacht Forum is putting a spotlight on the future of yachting from an environmental and sustainability standpoint, which is obviously hugely important to consider in today’s climate.  We also see a focus on networking with sessions dedicated to getting to meet as many “delegates” as possible;  This presents us with an even greater opportunity to meet the professionals within the industry that ordinarily, as a  CSP, we may not get to connect with on such a regular basis.  Affinity are really looking forward to the insight this event is going to bring into the future of yachting and celebrating the 30 year anniversary of The Superyacht Group!” Kate Shaw, Senior Client Administrator.
