South Florida yachting association hosts discussions in Monaco with international crowd on future of yachting industry
The Marine Industries Association of South Florida successfully played host September 17th, to 26 industry notables representing 12 industry associations interested in promoting professionalism within the yachting industry.
The invite only luncheon, held at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Club, included international associations and dignitaries that have a vested interest in improving the economic opportunities of the global yachting market. An industry wide code of ethics, equitable value proposition, and enhanced product merchandising were all discussed in a vibrant exchange with an international perspective.
MIASF Executive Director, Carlos Vidueira, expressed his thoughts on the assembly, “It was inspiring to sit and discuss such a rapidly evolving topic with such an esteemed international group of industry professionals and the associations that they represent. Through this type of international cooperation, I am convinced that our industry will overcome its challenges, adapt to a modern mindset and ultimately meet the needs of the yachting market.”
Based upon the success of this luncheon, The Marine Industries Association of South Florida will be hosting a follow up meeting in conjunction with the International Superyacht Society and the United States Superyacht Association on Saturday, October 27th of this year, at their own Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
