We’ll kick of with these words from Russell Crump, Director of Sales at Yachting Partners International (YPI): “Overall we felt this year’s 25th Anniversary Show was very productive. Our clients were happy to see the yachts we had spotlighted for them in the Show although I felt that the amount of exciting, fresh new product, especially above 50 metres, was a little light. It was good to see so many exhibitors in the Show though once again it is vital we get the balance right between the important B2B industry presence and the attendance of new blood - actual yacht buyers.
“We were impressed by the tenders and toys on display this year especially the submarines – this is a sector that has been developing beyond all recognition and it is attracting a lot of client interest. As a company, we entertained a number of representatives from the world of commercial shipping, something you will hear much more about from YPI and our parent company, BRS, over the next few months. So for us, it was a productive show. Our team worked hard and played hard – that’s a combination that always delivers results.”
