3 June 2013By Malcolm MacLean

The European Committee for Professional Yachting (ECPY) reports a successful Open House and Networking Day in Nice, France, on May 29.

A total of 34 yachts attended and were available for inspection on the harbour's Commercial Quay and Quay Infernet while 10 yachting industry suppliers took advantage of the event to present their wares to visitors. The event brought together hundreds of key brokerage professionals for a day of yacht viewings, a VAT seminar and social celebrations.

Says Thierry Voisin, President of ECPY, 'We were very lucky with the weather and the attendance of brokers was good, as were the participating yachts. In fact, it's the first time we've had to use two quays for the yachts.'

The next Open Day takes place on June 13 in Nice.
