Palma to launch forum in May

ADVERTISEMENT

After the canceling of the 29th Palma International Boat Show last spring, a few members of the Balearic Nautical Business Association have organized the Palma International Yachting Forum, which will run during the next Palma show scheduled for May 1-5.

The three-day forum will cover a range of issues facing yachting. Delegates will interact through morning work groups with the objective of pulling out key points to be debated at larger afternoon sessions presided over by a panel of experts.

“The Palma International Yachting Forum has intentionally been staged at the same time as the Boat Show to provide the interactive and networking platform that all successful boat shows need,” said Peter Franklin, one of the organizers. “Palma has one of the finest and best established infrastructures in the world for berthing, maintaining and repairing superyachts and catering to the needs of their owners, charterers and crew. We want to showcase that.”

With show was called-off in 2012 due to a lack of interest from exhibitors, and a lack of government funding, according to a news release about the forum.

Prices for the forum start at 250 British pounds for one day, including coffee, pastries and a tapas lunch. Early bird applications prior to Dec. 20 will receive a 5 percent discount upon arrival.
