Fourteen professionals from the boating industry will share their vision at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022
On 27 September, on the eve of the Monaco Yacht Show, the Monaco Yacht Summit 2022 will take place – the annual event for owners, charterers, future clients, yacht representatives, or managers. For this event, designers, shipyards, financial consultants and other professionals will be called together to share their experiences and personal interpretation of the state of the art in the boating industry.
The 2022 edition will have a panel of 14 experts sitting at the table, moderated by Stewart Campbell, lead editor for Boat International Media, and Derek Munro, manager of Divergent Yachting. A number of topics will be discussed during the day: from charter purchase to construction, refitting and new places to travel.
