“We see the need for people and companies [in the yachting industry] to come together for the success of their businesses and to advance their careers,” said Deena Tanner, manager of the symposium. “The industry will be stronger and this is a platform for that to happen. This year, we are focusing on jobs and careers and company exposure through education. We have a panel of yacht owners and many industry experts speaking at the symposium.”
