Antibes Yacht Show Plans Improvements

Gearing up for the 7th annual Antibes Yacht Show, which takes place this year from April 18th to 21st, the organisers are arranging to provide free Wi-Fi for the exhibitors and visitors of the show.
Global Marine Communications, a partner of the show for the last 2 years will manage the Internet connections.
Costas Charalambous, sales director of Global Marine Communications said, “It is our experience that something as simple as Wi-Fi is all too often forgotten at trade shows and whilst this leaves us bemused and baffled, it does nothing to further the impression the Yachting Industry has about Communications companies in general.
We have made it our mission to change these perceptions through consistent high quality and customer focused service provision. Fortunately a chance encounter introduced us to them and we have been happy to provide a service to the show for the last 2 years. This service has become indispensable particularly for key decision makers whilst away but still needing to be in touch with their colleagues back home.
In our opinion something as mundane as Wi-Fi should be readily available to organisers, exhibitors, press, delegates & visitors. Our goal is to take something many find complex and difficult to deliver and turn it into something simple, seamless & ubiquitous to our customers and their guests regardless of the arena in which we are operating.
The 2013 show will also partner with
  • Porsche,
  • Champagne De Castelnau, Henry de Bellegarde

The Superyacht Group will sponsor the seminar area and Yachts International will sponsor the VIP Lounge.
On Friday ISS will sponsor YachtInfo and on Saturday the PYA will sponsor its own seminar
The show is expecting around 190 exhibitors and about 120 yachts above 20 metres from countries that include:
  • U.K
  • USA
  • The Netherlands
  • Turkey
  • Cyprus
  • Italy
  • France
