The YARE Superyacht Networking Forum is a leading B2B event for the yachting industry unique in its focus on nurturing links between captains, suppliers and stakeholders. This year the event will take place from 18-20 March in Viareggio, Italy, where Tuscany's strong maritime offering will also be showcased.
YARE will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020 with an enhanced format to better the results of the meetings between companies and captains. Here’s what you can look forward to at the new and improved event:
A New Format
In order to optimise time and opportunities, YARE 2020 has a new format. The ‘B2C Meet the Captains’ session has been split into two half-days on the 19th and 20th of March and, depending on their needs, companies can choose between a one-day or full-attendance package. The agenda of meetings will be elaborated accordingly. Full attendance participation includes up to 15 meetings previously scheduled through the YARE app along with two dinners for extra networking opportunities. Besides the gala networking dinner, there will also be a second opportunity to gather and mingle with all the captains attending the Exclusive Captains' Night.
The Captain’s Delegation
YARE has over 10 years’ experience matchmaking between captains and companies of the superyacht industry, and now thanks to due investments on its app and the technology behind it, event organisers have been able to upgrade the level of meetings performances and attendee satisfaction through the Yare Supervision Board. Here, industry professionals and shipyard representatives will oversee the candidates' requests and work together with Navigo to put together the most qualified delegation. This is a priority to further improve the essence of the direct meetings between companies and captains and provide all participants with a proficient audience and potential customers.
The Passarelle Pitch
After the success of last year’s event, YARE will organise the Passarelle Pitch for 2020: a contest for companies that wish to present a new product or service to the audience. This a great way for companies to boost the visibility of their business, and those with the most interesting and innovative product will win advertising space in YARE’s media partner magazines.
