The first Superyacht Technology Summit takes place on the morning of Thursday 12 May. Not only will it welcome thought leaders and industry specialists, it will also host hands on demos and tech talks, advise on how the integration process works and consider what the future holds for the sector.
Derek Munro, moderator at the conference and Director at Divergent Yachting, says: “The combination of the Superyacht Technology Summit with ISE 2022 is perfect. We are great for each other. The key players in the superyacht industry will get massive exposure to ISE clients and ISE clients will get massive exposure to key players in the superyacht industry, who by the nature of the owners are ultra-high net worth individuals with not only yachts, but commercial and residential properties.”
