The Monaco Yacht Show runs Wednesday through Friday.

The Monaco Yacht Show opens Wednesday and runs through Monday with 34,000 participants expected from around the world.

The 2016 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show will occupy an exhibition area totaling 20,000 square meters, presenting 580 exhibiting companies and show partners, 125 superyachts including some 40 new vessels making their world premiere.

Today, a new edition of the Monaco Yacht Summit, organized by the show, will take place in a revised format for an exclusive audience of “a few high-profile attendees.”

Through the thematic workshops run by expert speakers, the Monaco Yacht Summit aims to discuss various aspects of superyachting today and provide useful information to an audience deliberately limited to 50 guests.

Tonight, 400 guests will be invited to the show’s opening gala evening. This will also be the 3rd edition of the Monaco Yacht Show Superyacht Awards and trophies will be presented to some of the superyachts exhibited at the MYS.

Three years ago, the show reoriented its development strategy to meet and even anticipate the needs of its participants — private clients, high-level visitors, managers of large brokerage or shipyard companies and all the sectors directly linked to yachting or complementary to the luxury industry.
