Their commentary will cover the following categories. There will be ample time for Q&A.
Engaging First-Time Superyacht Clients in Today’s Economy
– Yachting, an Economic Engine: an overview of who today’s superyacht owners are, what they’re worth, and what they spend their money on in terms of leisure
– Yachting as a Lifestyle: promoting superyacht ownership and cruising as an idea and ideal, vs. a product
– Marketing Re-Imagined: consumer-outreach strategies successfully adopted by non-yachting brands, and lessons from strategies that didn’t work
