Awlgrip, AkzoNobel’s yacht coating manufacturer, hosted its third annual Yacht Management Symposium last month in London.

As in previous years, the symposium included a series of open panel sessions and presentations from Awlgrip representatives. New this year was attendance by sister brand International. The brands covered topics that included new products, topcoat repairs, project management and case studies.

“Continuing on from the highly successful yacht management events we have previously hosted in London as well as in Florida, this latest session has further grown and cemented our partnerships with many management companies,” Awlgrip global brand manager Chris Toole said in a statement. “It has also been a great opportunity for us to expand and extend our relationships with first-time attendees.”

“Once again, we have been lucky to be able to attract some really great names and companies to this event, showing the continued value of these symposiums to all involved. Together through the panel sessions and interactions we continue to work closely toward our joint goals,” Toole said.

Delegates included representatives from Burgess Yachts, Braemar, SE Marine, John Winterbotham & Partners, YPI Group, Fraser Yachts and Fine Focus Ltd.
