Held during the Superyacht Design Symposium, the 2016 ShowBoats Design Awards honour the creative talents behind the most innovative, elegant and inspiring new yacht designs from the boards of the world’s leading yacht design studios. With 11 categories up for grabs – plus the prestigious Young Designer of the Year Award – the only way to know who wins a Neptune is to be at the ceremony on Monday 22 February.
The ShowBoats Design Awards celebration is one of the few parties where the great and good of the yachting industry really let their hair down. For 2016, the wild celebrations will be held at the popular Rosi’s Sonnbergstuben. You can expect as much fun, entertainment and craziness as last year.
The Superyacht Design Symposium 2016 is the only place you’ll be able to network with the most prestigious superyacht designers alongside leaders of the finest luxury brands in the world. With three social events over the course of the Superyacht Design Symposium and allocated networking time each day, you will be impressed with who you swap cards with at the event.
The varied plenary sessions at the Superyacht Design Symposium offer an unrivalled opportunity to hear from the finest minds from the world of design. And the technical workshops, with speakers who have hands-on experience of each subject, give attendees the chance to discuss matters in detail with their peers.
The Blohm + Voss Ski Cup, presented by Foil, is perhaps just as competitive than the ShowBoats Design Awards. An Olympic skier will set the time for delegates to beat, and the winners will receive a trophy at the end. For spectators, there will be warm drinks at the bottom of the slopes and the usual Apres-ski party will kick off once the winners have been announced.
