ANTIBES, FRANCE, May 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The superyacht crew agency
, based in Antibes, with offices just minutes from Port Vauban, was one of a large number of crew recruitment companies to attend at the event from April 23 to 26.
The Antibes Yacht Show is the first event of the nautical calendar in the Western Med and one which is becoming increasingly important to attend for yacht crew companies such as YPI Crew.
It was created just seven years ago to meet the growing demand for superyacht exhibitions in the South of France in the spring, before the luxury yacht charter season begins.
Consistently attracting all the big players from the world's leading brokerage and charter companies, this year saw shipyards also taking part in the event.
This year, more than 12 000 visitors attended the show over the four days from 23 countries across the globe. The highlight of the show for many was the 80-plus yachts from 12 to 50 metres which were displayed in Port Vauban, Europe's largest marina.
In total there were 164 exhibitors, offering information, insight and advice on a range of services and products from crew recruitment
to fine wine.
Held slightly later in April than previous years, part of the show's success was attributed to the beautiful spring weather. The decision has therefore been made to hold next year's Antibes Yacht Show during the same period, from April 22 to April 25 2015.
