Courtney Chalmers, Dominion Marine Media director of marketing, managed the event, which included sessions such as "The New Luxury Buyer," presented by YachtWorld.com vice president and general manager Ian Atkins; "Marketing in the Social Environment," by John Stewart, YachtWorld.com brand manager; and  "YachtWorld Foundation and SeaKeepers International," by Jessica Muffett, YachtWorld.com publisher emeritus, and Michael T. Moore, chairman of The International SeaKeepers Society.

"The panel discussions were a great opportunity for all of us brokers to hear from one another and share ideas for next year," attendee Jeff Stanley, of Gillman Yachts, said in a statement.
