The 2020 Monaco Yacht Show has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
According to Informa, who organise the show, the 30th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show will be postponed until next year due to the disruption caused by Covid-19.
In an official statement, Informa said, _“_With much of the superyacht fleet currently located in the US and Caribbean and the normal calendar of activity severely disrupted, it has been agreed that it is in the industry’s best interests to postpone the delivery of a top quality, prestige experience 30th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show next year, in September 2021, rather than September 2020."
However, show organisers have confirmed that the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is still set to go ahead in late October 2020 with over 900 boats expected to attend the show, including 100 superyachts.
