De organisatie van de Monaco Yacht Show heeft besloten de beurs te verplaatsen naar volgend jaar. De beurs was gepland van 23-26 september, maar medio mei stelden de 21 leden van de Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss) en de zeven jachtmakelaars van de Large Yacht Brokers Association (LYBRA) reeds in een gezamenlijke verklaring niet meer achter deelname te staan. Ze vreesden onder meer dat het gezondheidsrisico klanten zou weghouden en belemmering van beursbezoek door corona-maatregelen van de overheid. Ook vonden ze een ​​evenement ongepast waar luxe en rijkdom worden geëtaleerd. Daarnaast bestond bij exposanten onvrede over de hoge deelnamekosten, die het rendement op investering beïnvloeden.

Dit is het bericht van beursorganisator Informa over het verplaatsen van de Monaco Yacht Show:

“Over recent weeks, we have been in constant discussions with stakeholders and partners within the international Super Yacht Industry to better understand the challenges facing yacht owners, shipyards, brokers and other key participants in the face of the disruption due to COVID-19.
At the same time we have been working closely with all partners involved with the Monaco Yacht Show, and particularly the Principality of Monaco, to determine if a low-density, not-for-profit, support event in Monaco this year would have been both practical and beneficial to the market.
From a health and safety perspective, there was agreement between the local authorities and the organisers on an effective format and structure for the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show, incorporating the All Secure Standard for hygiene and bio-safety. However, ongoing apprehension from some exhibitors and attendees, combined with the fact that much of the Super Yacht fleet is currently still located in the US and Caribbean, has led to the conclusion that it is in the industry’s best interests to postpone until September 2021, the organization of the 30th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show originally scheduled for September 2020.

On behalf of the organising team, we’d like to thank each individual and company that has been supporting the Monaco Yacht Show and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the 30th Monaco Yacht Show from September 22 to 25, 2021 on the Port Hercule of Monaco.”
