For the first time, global luxury brands outside of the yachting industry will be able to participate in the show including, cars, private jets, fashion houses, watch makers, jewelers, real estate, interior design and gastronomy. This will mark the event’s attempt at bringing together yachting and luxury brands, and according to Cannes Yachting Festival, will be ‘the new hub at the heart of the show’.
