Superyacht Summit aligns with Refit Show

ADVERTISEMENT

The U.S. Superyacht Association is moving its annual Superyacht Summit to align with the Refit Show in Fort Lauderdale.

Instead of being held in March in Palm Beach, the Superyacht Summit in 2019 will take place April 9 at the Broward County Convention Center, where the Refit Show will follow on April 10-11. The alignment of these two events is intended to increase networking and professional opportunities for the marine industry, according to event organizers.

The Refit Show attracts yacht captains and crew, boatyard personnel, naval architects, designers and engineers, subcontractors and consultants. The show is moving to the April dates in 2019 to coincide with the traditional yacht circuit that moves from the Caribbean to Florida in early spring, according to organizers.

The USSA is a nonprofit trade association that promotes and supports the U.S. megayacht industry and its members worldwide through advocacy, marketing and education. Its Superyacht Summit is a day-long conference. Sessions this year covered such topics as marketing, business development and legislative issues. Attendees are predominantly professional and technical service providers, and marina/boatyard operators.

The two events will remain independent, but will support each other through co-marketing and networking opportunities in the shared space. “The industry now has three back-to-back days of valuable education, networking and sales opportunities,” stated Jim Miller, Refit Show director.
