ABU DHABI — Leading authorities on the Middle East’s superyacht sector will confront issues affecting the industry’s future at the ‘Superyacht Briefing’, which is part of the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (ADYS) taking place in late March.
The invitation-only meeting will take place on March 24 and will focus primarily on the challenges and opportunities for regional industry stakeholders. Organizers believe the open forum discussions will help address a serious dearth of information on the regional yachting industry and related businesses, such as marina development, regulation and security.
“We are inviting leading experts to shed light on important issues affecting the business in the Middle East, and highlight opportunities that will have a far-reaching impact on its future growth,” said Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of Informa Yacht Group (IYG), organizers of the briefing and the annual ADYS. “Our particular focus on the Middle East highlights the growing prominence of this region, and the need to expand the global industry’s knowledge and understanding of it - especially considering that 30 percent of the world’s largest superyachts are owned by Arab nationals.”
