Organisers of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) have announced a range of changes to the event including a new look with extra berth and a reorganisation of the exhibition area. These have been planned to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary.
This year, the historical exhibition area of the Darse Nord will move on Quai Antoine 1er. The new setting results from the decision of the Monaco government to start the renewal works of Port Hercules for the construction of new underground car parks and the repositioning of the Museum of the private collection of antique cars of HSH Prince Rainier III.
Quai Antoine 1er will be able to deliver an aggregate of 2,825 sqm of surface area – divided into two air-conditioned exhibition tents to relocate most of the exhibitors of the former Darse Nord tent.
In addition, from 2015 the MYS will offer three berths alongside the Quai Rainier III to accommodate vessels over 100m. This will take the afloat exhibition capacity to 121 superyachts.
This new setting on the southern side of Port Hercules will require the reorganisation of a coherent and homogeneous traffic flow between all the existing and new exhibition areas, however, the show organiser will reinforce its reception, information and transportations services on the venue for an uninterrupted visit along the whole Port Hercules.
