The Principality of Monaco and event organizers Informa have confirmed that this year’s Monaco Yacht Show will take place over September 23rd to 26th at Port Hercule. In addition to a new intimate format, which is being adopted for this year to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene, the show will be held on a not-for-profit basis to support the yachting industry during these difficult times.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on all industries, not least the international yachting community,” commented Charlie McCurdy, Chief Executive of Informa Markets. “As we move to the other side of the pandemic, all parts of the industry need to work collaboratively to ensure a speedy return and recovery. We are playing our part by hosting a not-for-profit Monaco Yacht Show in 2020, providing an opportunity for the community to come together, share ideas, meet with customers and start to rebuild positive momentum.”
The 30th edition of the show will provide the opportunity for yacht builders, brokers and designers to meet with their colleagues and clients in a secure and safe place following months of disruption to the industry. The event will be organized by Informa, the world’s leading event coordinator, in accordance with their stringent AllSecure health and safety code. The format of the show will be reimagined on a more intimate scale, ensuring that all guests can remain safe while enjoying the show.
“In the aftermath of COVID-19, it is the responsibility of the Monaco Government to do everything we can to help businesses and industries recover quickly,” explained Jean Castellini, Minister of Finance and Economy for Monaco. “In this spirit, we are working with Informa to finalize details of the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show, which will prioritize the health and safety of all participants, whilst providing direct support to the international yachting community, ensuring it can connect with customers and accelerate the recovery of what is an increasingly important industry for the region.”
