International Superyacht Summit

The International Superyacht Summit will take place from December 8-9, 2021, in Dubai, organisers Fabulous Yachts and P&O Marinas have revealed.

Originally scheduled to take place in March 2020, the rearranged summit will take place on board the Queen Elizabeth 2 floating hotel in Dubai’s Mina Rashid Marina.

For its third iteration, the summit has moved its focus from the UAE as a cruising destination, to a more global perspective.

“The focus of The International Superyacht Summit has, up to now, been the development of the UAE as a preferred winter destination for superyachts on the migratory trail,” organisers say in a statement on the summit website. “This year we look further afield and encourage the industry to take a collaboratory approach throughout the region.”

The 2021 edition of The International Superyacht Summit will introduce two new themes. The first new theme is how superyacht marina developments empower lifestyle and tourism, and the role of the upscale yachting industry in new and consolidated tourist destinations.

The second new theme is the emerging trends in superyacht ownership and how builders can accommodate the needs of an ever-younger generation of owners and charterers. Central to this trend is also the growing environmental awareness of these younger generations and the higher intolerance of unsustainable practices.

“There have been positive regional developments for us to share and discuss in the 2021 edition,” add the organisers. “A yachting destination cannot be a single port or marina. It is necessary to build a yachting ‘ecosystem’ of marinas, cities and regions, able to offer a varying range of activities. This, enhanced by a collaborative strategy, will develop the region into a satisfying cruise haven.”
