Programme of events in 2021
B2C meetings with captains
The event will consist of two half-day networking sessions where companies can promote their business through a personalised agenda, which includes up to 15 meetings per company. The YARE app is a modern and efficient tool that enables businesses to schedule meetings based on its target audience.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meetings will be divided into two sessions: a face-to-face live networking session and a B2C Meet The Captain meeting online through the app.
Captains’ forum and workshops
Organised together with The Superyacht Group, the Superyacht Captains’ Forum features expert panel debates and seminars for captains, first officers, chief engineers, yacht managers and industry professionals. Providing an expert insight into the current state of the superyacht market and addresses a range of pertinent subjects to superyacht crew, the forum is a must-attend event in the yachting calendar.
Gala Dinner and captains’ night
The Gala Dinner is an event within itself and a bright opportunity to mingle with all attendants. After the Superyacht Captains’ Forum and the thematic workshops, about 500 guests attend this pleasant evening, which includes entertainment and music.
The captains’ night takes place on the last evening of YARE and involves an evening of socialising for both captains and companies.
