Business Outlook: Are we managing to build, maintain or reach our capacity—as a network of shipyards for both new build and repair, we have a finite number of build and repair slots. As the fleet grows, are we investing to support the bigger fleet, or are many shipyards in survival mode, downsizing, collapsing, diversifying and, therefore, will we see a shrinking of capacity, especially in the USA?


World's Got Talent Part II: Taking it to the streets following from the Panel Presentation at the ISS Members’ Breakfast earlier in the week, this session will explore what outreach activities have worked in different parts of the world, and how we may assemble a toolkit that will enable this industry to engage with educators to find our workforce for the future.

2-Step Career PathWorking on a Superyacht and then Working Ashore: How easy is it to make the transition from Department Head or Captain of a vessel to working within the many companies ashore that support the global superyacht fleet?  How should we continue to develop the necessary skills to develop as professionals?


Tenders and On-Board Operations: With 10 deaths on superyachts this year and several serious injuries, what's going wrong? Where does good design interface with the regulations which are meant to increase safety for crew and guests?
