Yacht Chartering Conference in Barcelona


There is just one week to go before the Yacht Chartering Conference opens in Barcelona!

Running just before the Barcelona Boat Show this one day conference is taking place at OneOcean Port Vell on the 11th October 2016.

As well as the one day conference there is to be a drinks reception at Hotel Serras where attendees can watch the sunset from the roof top balcony while networking with industry colleagues.

The conference will discuss what needs to be done to ensure the best experience for charterers, with a particular focus on the service offered by marinas and local tourism; what to do when the demand for yachts outstrips supply; the process of applying for a charter licence, as well as a look at which chartering destinations are set to be the must-see hot-spots of tomorrow.
