Following the last-minute cancellation of the Antibes Yacht Show by its organizers, several city leaders asked the Association to Support Port Vauban Evolution to put on an event on those dates so as not to leave a gap in the international yachting calendar.
In three weeks, ASAP brought together more than 30 partners and 75 percent of the budget required for this new event, called Antibes Celebrates Yachting, that will take place April 24-25 on Port Vauban, Bastion St Jaume and IYCA (Billionaires Quay).
Antibes Celebrates Yachting (ACY) will combine professionalism and conviviality with speed networking, a job fair and seminars. And MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association) members will exhibit their yachts.
ACY 2015 will be open to the public and the entrance will be free.
