About the Superyacht Design Symposium 2019
Celebrating its eleventh year, the Superyacht Design Symposium invites the superyachting world to share and compare concepts and experiences, stimulating authoritative and, at times, controversial debate.
The biggest names in superyacht design are joined by experts from the wider luxury community for two days of discussion on key trends within the yachting industry and everything beyond.
Innovation will be at the heart of the 2019 Superyacht Design Symposium. Innovation is a word often used in the design, superyacht and luxury worlds; with the help of our impressive line-up of speakers, we will attempt to define what it really means, where should it be applied, and, importantly, who is really achieving it – and how?
The event is accompanied by an exciting social programme, providing the opportunity to network with other attendees in an informal, relaxed and fun environment. Our guests establish new relationships and reinforce existing links at one of the superyacht industry’s most important events.
The Boat International Design & Innovation Awards and the Young Designer of the Year Award will take place on the first night, ahead of the Symposium, celebrating excellence in the industry from both newcomers and established brands.
The Boat International Design & Innovation Awards focus directly on the fundamentals of superyacht design such as naval architecture, exterior design and interior layout, and bring the specialist skills of the industry’s most talented teams into the spotlight. This year the Awards will put greater emphasis on innovation, highlighting companies and individuals challenging the norm.
The Young Designer of the Year Award tasks young designers with a realistic client request to challenge their ideas, technical ability and capacity to deliver a truly imaginative, yet practical, solution.
