Members of four industry associations - the Florida Yacht Brokers Association, the International Superyacht Society, the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and United States Superyacht Association - have a new option that might allow more of their members to attend the upcoming American Superyacht Forum, organizers announced.

Forum organizer The Yacht Report Group created an "Interchangeable Day Pass Program" that would let people from any of the four associations attend the event for one, two or all three days and be able to swap their pass with fellow company representatives.

The forum is set for May 16-18 at the Hilton Marina Fort Lauderdale.

"The core objective of this year's American Superyacht Forum is to analyze, explore and understand what needs to be done to help grow the U.S.A.'s market share," Yacht Report Group events director Georgina Lucey said in a statement.

"We believe attendance at the ASF will help delegates take an active role in facilitating this process," she added. "If a member company of FYBA, ISS, MIASF and USSA is able to come for only a day, we believe they will benefit from their experience. If they can send another company colleague the next day, they will have that much more information to share around the conference table."

Members of the four associations who want to take advantage of the day-pass program should contact Lucey or their association.
