This year’s event will be open to visitors from 11am to 7.30pm, allowing exhibitors more private time in the morning

The organisers of the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show have altered the times for this year’s event. From September 25-28, the show will be open to the public from 11am to 7.30pm (closing at 7pm on the Saturday), while exhibitors and the media will have access earlier in the morning.

By opening to visitors in the late morning and extending opening times into the early evening, the organisers seek to offer schedules that correspond better to the visiting times preferred by private clients who can benefit fully and with greater tranquility from the social program accompanying the show.

Exhibitors will also be able to devote their mornings to meeting colleagues in the exhibition tents, holding press conferences or organising their day’s work in peace and quiet before welcoming visitors.

“Every year the Principality of Monaco is decked out in the MYS colors and lives to the frenzied rhythms of the events to which the social elite of yachting and their clients are invited,” says the organiser in a statement. “Private parties, cocktails, gala dinners, business meetings, and press conferences are organised around the Monaco Yacht Show, along with the succession of superyacht visits.

“The new opening times, chosen after consultation with major yachting companies, should ease the relentless intensity of the four days of the show and create a more pleasant experience both for visitors interested in chartering or purchasing a yacht and for exhibitors.”

On Saturday 25 September at 7pm, 125 superyachts will mark the end of the Monaco Yacht Show with a foghorn concert that will echo around Port Hercules to announce the forthcoming 30th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2020.
