The International Superyacht Society (ISS) in collaboration with Wilfred Sultana & Associates to present 'Malta, a Better Destination for Superyachts!', 11, Sept. 2013 in Malta.
This is the third in the Malta seminar series, marking the ongoing cooperation between ISS and Wilfred Sultana (the initial seminars being held in 2009 and 2011). Content is consistently related to superyachts in general and the Malta yachting industry in particular. Given the ongoing success of the program, it is now being offered on a biennial basis.
Dr. Chris Cardona, Minister for the Economy, Investment and Small Business—with responsibility for maritime affairs in general—will be the main speaker at the September 2013 Seminar. “Dr. Cardona’s presence is significant as it will be an appropriate occasion to be enlightened of ‘new’ Government perspectives and projections for the coming years with regards to the yachting industry in Malta,” remarks Sultana. The Ministry for the Economy, Investment and Small Business is the Distinguished Patron of the event as well.
A programme highlighting the topics to be presented and their respective speakers is to be announced shortly. Relevant topics related to legal and fiscal incentives, refit and repair, crew training, chartering, policies shortfalls and other interrelated issues will be presented and discussed.
The seminar will now include a 30-minute open discussion by a panel of three experts who will have the opportunity to offer their topic-related points immediately following a number of presentations by guest speakers.
