The topics of the Superyacht Design Symposium 2019

The topics of the Superyacht Design Symposium 2019

Defining Innovation

Innovation lies at the heart of good design. In 2019, it will form the foundation of our annual Superyacht Design Symposium as our peerless line-up of speakers talk about what it means to them, where it has been applied successfully (and otherwise), who is achieving it – and how.

Join stars of the design world as well as superyacht owners and builders for two days of inspiring debate and conversation in the beautiful mountain resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo.

Innovative Use of Space

The way in which we use space is rapidly changing: but is the superyacht industry doing enough to keep up?

Join the debate as we hear from some of the world’s most provocative, brilliant, and influential minds – from architects, artists, yacht designers and builders, through to leading social anthropologists and heads of industry – on what can and should be done to push the boundaries of next-generation design.

Including exclusive insights into some of today’s most extraordinary success stories, and the opportunity to speak directly with those behind them.


The impact of design on our environment and ecosystem is starting to take centre stage for both owners and designers. From solar sails to sustainable architecture, we profile the state-of-the-art innovations that you need to know about now.

Tech (AI, Cybercrime, Design Technology)

This year’s tech briefing takes a 360° look at the most innovative technological developments being employed in the yachting world today – from how new VR programmes are shaping the future of concept design, to designing a yacht resistant to cyber attack.


The shape of superyachts is changing inside as well as out. Join some of the interior and fashion world’s most exciting designers as the debate how they play with space, shape and finishes.
