Organisers Informa together with the Principality of Monaco say further details will be announced in the next few weeks.

The event will employ high standards of hygiene and cleanliness, prioritising the safety of participants and is intended to help support the recovery of the industry post COVID-19.

“In the aftermath of COVID-19, it is the responsibility of the Monaco Government to do everything we can to help businesses and industries recover quickly,” said Jean Castellini, minister of finance and economy for Monaco.

“In this spirit, we are working with Informa to finalise details of the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show, which will prioritise the health and safety of all participants, whilst providing direct support to the international yachting community, ensuring it can connect with customers and accelerate the recovery of what is an increasingly important industry for the region.”

Opportunity

Charlie McCurdy, chief executive, Informa Markets added: “The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on all industries, not least the international yachting community.

“As we move to the other side of the pandemic, all parts of the industry need to work collaboratively to ensure a speedy return and recovery.”

And he said the not-for-profit Monaco Yacht Show will provide an opportunity for the community to come together, share ideas, meet with customers and start to rebuild positive momentum.

The show is scheduled to take place from 23 to 26 September at Port Hercule, Monaco.
