Yacht Show in Monaco
Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) is an international trade show held in Monaco every year by the British company Business and Publishing Group (BBPG) since 1991. MYS takes place at Port Hercules, Europe's largest in-water display of luxury yachts.
After a year of canceled shows, yacht aficionados and builders were anxious to attend this year's event, and it most certainly did not disappoint.
In an attempt to create a more exclusive atmosphere, the structure of this year's show had an intimate feel to better connect builders and buyers better. There were 80 superyachts on display, including 32 launches, with 350 exhibitors.
The Monaco Yacht Summit, organized by the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), was a well-attended part of the four-day event. This summit gives industry leaders a place to connect. This year's event was attended by designers, brokers, superyacht builders, and financial advisors-all bringing their unique expertise to the table. The summit is open to yacht owners, charterers (with interest in expanding their knowledge), and end-user clients and their representatives, as well as private wealth managers.
