Malta, a Better Destination for Superyachts!

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) is again extending its collaboration to Wilfred Sultana & Associates (WSA) in presenting the Superyacht Industry seminar, 'Malta, a Better Destination for Superyachts!' being held in Malta on Wednesday 11th September 2013

Further to the traditional support of the ISS, the Malta Seminar will see for the first time the participation of the Professional Yachting Association (PYA) and that of the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association (MYBA). 

Leading industry personalities will be in Malta on the 11th September to address a seminar related to superyachts in general and the Malta yachting industry in particular. This is being held at the Grand Hotel Excelsior in the capital city of Valleta. 

Ken Hickling, president of the International Superyacht Society and global superyacht business development manager at AkzoNobel presentation will bear the same heading as that of the official title of the Seminar namely 'Malta, a Better Destination for Superyachts!'; he will outline a generic and positive approach in how to highlight what actually constitutes 'a Better Destination for Superyachts'. 

Wilfred Sultana organiser remarked,“We are most enthralled with the involvement of three such names of excellence in the maritime scenario. This together with the fact that all three entities will be represented by high ranking officials indeed gives the Malta event character and credibility.”
