Organisers of the MYS are hoping that this year’s show will become a genuine family brand with a range of related projects dedicated to enhance the show’s visit experience for the private clientele and offer an immersion into the superyacht world for prospective owners or charterers over the next few editions.
The MYS has altered its opening times for 2019, as show organisers look to ease the relentless intensity of the fours days of the show and create a more pleasant experience both for visitors interested in chartering or purchasing a yacht. The new opening times were chosen after consultation with major yachting companies and exhibitors.
In 2019, MYS will be open to the public from 11am to 7.30pm, while exhibitors and the media will have access earlier, at 8am in the morning. Exhibitors can devote their mornings to meeting their colleagues in the exhibition tents, holding their press conferences or organising their day’s work in peace and quiet before welcoming visitors.
On Saturday, 28 September the show will close at 7pm, and as is tradition the expected fleet of 125 superyachts will mark the end of the show with a foghorn concert that will echo around Port Hercules.
Every year the Principality of Monaco is decked out in the MYS colours and is the scene of glamorous events hosted by world renowned yachting companies. Private parties, cocktails, gala dinners, business meetings and press conferences are organised around the Monaco Yacht Show, along with the succession of superyacht visits.
MYS will once again be supported by Ulysse Nardin as the Official Sponsor of the show for the 2019 edition. The renewal of the MYS official sponsorship illustrates the long-standing partnership started 11 years ago between the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer and the show.
At the MYS Upper Deck Lounge, the show’s luxury exhibition and reception area, visitors and fine watch aficionados will be able to discover Ulysse Nardin’s timepieces – including the Diver Blue Shark.
