The Principality of Monaco and Informa Announce Not-For-Profit Show
The Principality of Monaco and Informa have announced that this years Monaco Yacht Show will be a Secure, not-for-profit event
Despite the lack of support from exhibitors and visitors alike the Principality of Monaco and Informa has confirmed they are working together to deliver this years Monaco Yacht Show in September.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a marked impact on the international yachting community, with many businesses temporarily closed and staff furloughed, and the usual annual cycle of industry activity severely disrupted. It is a situation that is not going to totally disappear in the next six months and there is concern that the show with its cheek by jowl exhibition stands and overcrowded docks should not go ahead.
Both SYBAss and LYBRA have withdrawn their support for the show for just these reasons
Recognizing the challenges facing everyone post the COVID-19 pandemic, the organisers have been working out how best to support the industry in 2020. They have announced that the 30th Monaco Yacht Show will be run on a not-for-profit basis. They believe in that by doing so they will be, providing direct support to all attendees and exhibitors from across the market.
They maintain that the proposed event will employ the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness and be dedicated to supporting the speedy recovery of the industry, providing a networking platform for designers, brokers, shipyards and other key players within the yachting industry to connect with their customers and share ideas in a safe environment.
Highest standards of hygiene and safety
The proposed 2020 Monaco Yacht Show will be organised in accordance with Informa’s AllSecure health and safety standard. As the world’s leading events’ organiser, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.
Whilst the intimate nature of the 2020 event will prioritize the safety of participants, both Informa and the Monaco Principality are committed to ensuring the quality of the event and show experience is maintained for everyone.
