Yachts from around the globe will glide into the spotlight at the Newport Yachting Center and elsewhere on the Newport Harbor waterfront from June 18-22, 2012. Newport Harbor Corp. is the parent company of Newport Exhibition Group, which produces and manages multiple industry events, including the Newport International Boat Show, which is held at the Newport Yachting Center each year.

“This will be the third consecutive year that the Newport Charter Yacht Show will be held at the Newport Yachting Center, but the first time it will be a part of the NHC family,” said Tom DeLotto, director of the Newport Exhibition Group, adding that the five-day show has been in existence for 30 years and is one of only a handful of significant charter yacht shows in the world.

“The Newport Charter Yacht Show has a solid foundation and will synergize perfectly with our company’s expertise in the yachting industry. Our 2012 show will pivot around a world-class display of luxury yachts available for charter, as well as the services and amenities available to support yachts and their crews.”

The in-water vessels on display will represent primarily the charter yacht Industry, and an array of on-land exhibitors will add to the ambience and offer value for the captains, crews and potential charter guests. Forums and seminars will be staged for those who attend and will include experts speaking on subjects specific to the industry, with an emphasis on new products and technology.
