Walpole is a non-profit-making organisation that furthers the interests of the British luxury industry by harnessing and sharing the collective knowledge, experience and resources of the membership. As the voice of British luxury, it seeks to promote and inspire British luxury worldwide.
This makes them a good partner for SuperyachtUK which itself champions UK innovation, excellence and heritage.
The partnership will see the development of SYUK’s presence within the growing luxury lifestyle industry. It will allow them to better leverage the profile of both the association and that of the members enabling partnerships to develop between member companies.
Walpole’s unique membership of over 180 of Britain’s most prestigious companies exemplify the highest standards in terms of quality, style, design, craftsmanship, creativity, service and innovation, all attributes that are synonymous with the values of Superyacht UK.
SYUK will now be joining the likes of members such as;
- British Airways
- Financial Times
- McLaren Automotive
- Orient Express
The first joint activity with Walpole will be at Monaco Yacht Show in September, where SYUK will host several Walpole members at the Superyacht UK Members Lounge, the Walpole Yearbooks will also be found in the Members Lounge as coffee table books of choice for the 2012 show.
