This week our Yacht Business Unit, is in Kitzbühel, Austria to attend the Superyacht Design Symposium, February 21-23, hosted by Boat International Media. For a third year, MTN-An EMC company is sponsoring the event, which draws 300 yacht owners, designers, shipyards, refit yards, project managers and important companies in the yacht-building industry. The symposium is an ideal venue to meet and network with people involved in the early stages of yacht construction, along with the decision makers for onboard communications for new builds and refits. The agenda includes conference sessions, the ShowBoats Design Awards, social events and a ski competition among participants (Did we mention it takes place in the Austrian Alps?).
This event provides us the opportunity to share the importance of integrating communications systems into yacht design for optimal network performance. As a symposium sponsor, we also had the honor of presenting the Holistic Design Award portion of the Show Boats Design Awards ceremony. Check out the full list of 2016 Boat Show Design winners.
