The Yacht Racing Forum launches its new website and discloses the initial draft conference content and list of speakers.

The Yacht Racing Forum 2015 will deliver ideas and concepts in three key areas that affect everyone in the yacht racing industry: Business and Marketing, Design and Technology and Risk Management and Safety.

The main conference, Business and Marketing, will be split into four modules: Event Management / Sponsorship on day one, Marketing & Media / Elite versus Grass roots on day two.

« The conferences promises to be very interesting », says Bernard Schopfer, the Yacht Racing Forum organiser. « We keep receiving expressions of interest from potential exhibitors, partners and delegates, and have already confirmed top quality speakers from within as well as outside of the sailing world. The exhibition will also be a key feature of the event, with high tech multihulls and foilers, virtual sailing prototypes, America’s Cup boats models, safety equipment, insurance companies, the years best sailing pictures and much more. It will be both entertaining and informative! »

The event will attract over 300 people in one place at one time to do business and meet future clients: yacht clubs, athletes, sponsors, event organisers, designers, technical suppliers and anyone involved or just interested in yacht racing.
