Another Major Event to get Cancelled due to COVID-19 – Monaco Yacht Show
The world’s rich and famous yacht enthusiasts were all waiting for September 2020 for the Monaco Yacht Show. Global designers anticipated showcasing the stunning luxury yacht design ideas which were to be offered for sale in the market next year. Some were planning to sell their yachts, and others were planning to buy them, not to mention those who were just excited to see them.
But all these dreams came crashing down with the announcement of the show’s postponement, thanks to COVID-19. So basically, just as everything else in our lives has been halted, one of the world’s most glamorous events got carried forward due to precautionary procedures until the disappearance of Coronavirus.
But all hope is not lost for yacht lovers since, at the moment, the show is set to take place in September 2021.
And this is the worst part!
While most people understand the government’s decision to postpone the event, what’s annoying is that this year’s show was supposed to be the 30th anniversary of the start of the biggest yacht exhibition in the world. Moreover, it was planned that this celebration would be the largest of its kind ever. Not just that, the show’s profits were to help companies affected by the pandemic.
The knowledge of these factors has led to people getting divided into two sides. A supportive section believes that the priority should be given to public safety, even if the risk is low. On the other hand, an opposing section concludes that the goal of the celebration is in the public interest, and will help many who suffer due to the spread of Coronavirus. While the general public argues between the two opinions, for now, the first opinion has prevailed.
Here’s what the big guns have to say
Charlie McCurdy, CEO of Informa Markets, has been quoted as saying that the international super yachting community has witnessed significant disruption in 2020. Still, all efforts are being made to deliver a reliable platform to showcase the industry at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2020.
With over 900 boats containing 100 superyachts, this upcoming show could well be the cushion the yachting world has been looking for after the postponement of the Monaco event.
A bit about Monaco Yacht show’s history
The first exhibition held at Monaco in 1991 was in response to the desire of the superyacht owners in Emirates, who had employed a large number of agents and brokers in their service. The event included only about 50 companies, but it was nonetheless a prestigious occasion and was opened by the Prince of Monaco at the time, Prince René III.
Since then, the exhibition presents dozens of extravagant yachts each year with a total value ranging in billions! These luxury yachts are equipped with hot tubs and heliports, and various living rooms filled with expensive furniture.
