Yachting Industry Future Debated at Monaco Yacht Show

Monday, September 24, 2012

Marine Industries Association of South Florida hosts Monaco discussions with international grouping on the future of the yachting industry.

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF) recently played host to twenty-six industry notables representing twelve industry associations interested in promoting professionalism within the yachting industry.

The invite only luncheon, held at the Monaco Yacht Club, included international associations and dignitaries that have a vested interest in improving the economic opportunities of the global yachting market. An industry wide code of ethics, equitable value proposition, and enhanced product merchandising were all discussed in a vibrant exchange with an international perspective.

MIASF Executive Director, Carlos Vidueira, expressed his thoughts on the assembly, “It was inspiring to sit and discuss such a rapidly evolving topic with such an esteemed international group of industry professionals and the associations that they represent. Through this type of international cooperation, I am convinced that our industry will overcome its challenges, adapt to a modern mindset and ultimately meet the needs of the yachting market.”

The MIASF is a not-for-profit trade organization created in 1962 to promote and protect the sound growth of the marine industry in South Florida for the benefit and education of its members, the community and the environment. The MIASF is the owner of the world’s largest boat show, The Fort Lauderdale International boat Show, founded in 1960.
