Mindful of the fact that the yachting industry is far from a nine-to-five desk job, organisers of the Palma International Yachting Forum have created a mobile app which is designed to run alongside the event’s comprehensive website.
Running from the 1st to the 3rd of May 2013, concurrently with the Palma International Boat Show from the 1st to the 5th of May, the Palma International Yachting Forum promises an impressive attendance of specialist participants and leading authorities from the superyacht world – a nice welcome to the early season calendar of nautical events.
Forum organiser Peter Franklin, himself a member of the Balearic Nautical Business Association, says, “We have devised the mobile app, downloadable free of charge, to include all the required information on the venue and program plus an instant booking form. Numbers are restricted to 120 delegates and, with just ten weeks until kickoff, we recommend that you take hold of your smart phone now and book early or face disappointment.”
Outside of Forum session hours, delegates will be able to avail themselves of networking lunches, cocktail receptions and a paella dinner. A Forum highlight will be the friendly one day golf competition at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Puntiro Golf Course on Saturday 4 May. With late tee times to accommodate weary heads, this links-likened course promises as much of a challenge as it does a good time.
