During the Monaco Yacht Show 2016, the PYA is hosting a range of seminars covering topics relevant to yacht crew in all departments. With a great line-up of speakers and industry experts, this year's event promises to be one of the highlights of the show for captains, crew and industry professionals.
Following the success of previous years, the PYA Headline Day on Thursday 29th September will once again be held at the HQ of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), close to the show and with excellent facilities.
The event is attended by captains, senior officers, heads of department, key media figures and decision-making industry professionals. The first session on Headline Day is the renowned ‘PYA Sea Changes Forum’ providing the latest updates and changes in the superyacht industry. With experts from the MCA, RYA and PYA amongst others, this is the place to be for the latest news on regulations, training and careers, directly from the experts.
The second event, and a new concept for this year, is ‘Laying the Blame: A Disaster at Sea’. This will be a dramatic, high-energy session involving the audience in an analysis of what went wrong and who’s to blame following a high-profile accident on board.
The seminars are followed by a networking reception on the panoramic rooftop terrace of the IHO with the best views over Port Hercule.
This year, for the first time, the PYA's other seminars will take place on the afternoons of 28th and 30th September in the ACREW crew lounge at La Rascasse in the heart of the port. With a wide range of activities spanning alll departments there is sure to be something for everyone.
The annual PYA table-setting competition will take place on board participating yachts throughout the day on Wednesday 28th, and winners will be announced at the PYA Interior Sea Changes Seminar on Friday 30th.
