ACREW hosts seminars for crew at Monaco show

ADVERTISEMENT

For its fourth year, ACREW will welcome crew and business guests to La Rascasse during the Monaco Yacht Show, which opens tomorrow. The theme for the ACREW & IMM Crew Lounge this year is “Yachting in the Caribbean,” bringing guests a bit of calm, warmth and Caribbean heart when they visit La Rascasse.  

Crew are invited to a lunch on the garden terrace daily from noon to 2 p.m. In addition, Heinen & Hopman, Angels Bespoke Events, Holland Marine Lift and Italian Superyacht Life have teamed up to provide lunches to go. There also will be complimentary massage services in the Revitalize Zone.

ACREW’s scheduled seminars at the ACREW & IMM Crew Lounge include:

  • “Women in Leadership,” hosted by ACREW and sponsored by The Crew Academy. Successful and influential women will lead the discussion on the future of equality in yachting. The session will be divided into two parts: first, a panel discussion investigating the key considerations the yachting industry needs to address; second, delegates will break into groups to focus on specific issues and share advice and insights.
  • “Caribbean Winter Season 2018/2019,” hosted by IGY Marinas and Yacht Club Port de Plaisance. First-hand accounts from marinas, business owners and captains on the revival of St. Maarten, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the wider region. The latest onsite, fact-based information on marinas, provisioning, airports, itineraries, tours, activities and key infrastructure details, as well as specific itinerary options for megayachts visiting the Caribbean region this season: USVIs, BVIs, St. Lucia, Panama and Costa Rica.
  • “Does Green Superyacht Technology Make Sense to Owners?” Hosted by DNV GL. The shipping industry is under increasing pressure to act upon the Paris Agreement and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing emissions to air and introducing new propulsion technologies are key challenges for the worldwide transport sector, including megayachts. The world’s future fleet will have to rely on a broader range of fuels, propulsion solutions and energy efficiency measures. DNV GL hosts a panel of specialists –  including industry experts, captains and local authorities – to answer the big question: “Will superyacht owners have to find greener ways to fuel their yachts? Will they want to?”
  • “The Future of Mediterranean Superyacht Marinas,” hosted by IGY Marinas. This seminar will focus on megayacht marina destinations and global infrastructure developments. Learn the latest on Porto Cervo Marina in Sardinia, Italy, and  IGY Sète Marina, France – the latest megayacht marina destination in the Med.
