About the Superyacht Design Symposium
Celebrating its tenth year, the Superyacht Design Symposium invites the superyacht industry to share and compare concepts and experiences, stimulating authoritative and, at times, controversial debate to positively influence future superyacht projects. The biggest names in superyacht design are joined by experts from the wider design community for two days of discussion about yacht design.
The event is accompanied by an exciting social programme, including the ever-popular mountain lodge party and the eagerly anticipated ski cup. This provides the opportunity to interact with like-minded peers in an informal, relaxed and fun environment. Attendees establish new relationships and reinforce exisiting ones at the design industry's most important event.
Previously called the ShowBoats Design Awards, the name changed to reflect our increased focus on design and the innovation that accompanies it, as well as highlight features that make a boat successful and smart from an operational perspective.
The Boat International Design & Innovation Awards focus directly on the fundamental design aspects of superyacht design such as naval architecture, exterior design and interior layout, and brings the specialist design skills of the industry’s most talented teams into the spotlight.
