Quaynote Communications and YachtMedia are proud to unveil the Quaynote Palma Superyacht Conference 2016 program. Specifically structured for the boasting industry professionals staged in Palma de Mallorca, the event will again feature two days of presentations, debate and interactive panel discussions, followed by a golf & networking day at the weekend.
“With the 4th Palma Superyacht Show and the 33rd Boatshow Palma again running concurrently over the five day May holiday weekend and planning for even more expansion, there was never any question about the right time and place to stage these events again,” commented Quaynote director Lorna Titley.
Last year’s conference provided amazing business networking opportunities and an engaging selection of relevant topics for captains, senior crew, managers, brokers and a whole range of the boating industry professionals.
On Thursday 28th April, the first day of the Palma Superyacht Show, the Quaynote conference theme will be The Future for Captains and Crew. This will cover such important topics as Crew residency & taxation, career path planning, health / medical care & social security protection, as well as implementation of STCW standards.
Expert analysis and interactive panel discussions will also look into subjects such as, updated chartering regulations and fiscal implications, crew training for charter operations, as well as the role of marinas in enabling successful future development of luxury yacht chartering.
On Friday 29th April, the conference will focus on The Future of Superyacht Technology. Recent years have been marked by renewed growth in the numbers and sizes of luxury vessels being built, and an increased requirement, both from a legislative and moral standpoint on environmental issues. This has led to a period when a large number of innovative technological developments have been brought to market.
With around 60 luxurious vessels for sale or charter at the Palma Show, where better to showcase a selection of the latest technology being designed and produced to improve comfort, handling, safety and performance of the modern luxury boats, and to discuss its merits in depth?
On Saturday 30th April, the 2nd Quaynote / YachtMedia Golf and Networking Day will be hosted by the top class Son Gual Golf Course on the outskirts of Palma. With the pleasant spring temperatures in Mallorca, this is once again expected to be a great way to unwind, get some exercise and socialise in a relaxed environment.
