Widely recognized as the largest exhibition of professional crewed luxury yachts in the world and one of the most significant annual events in the global yachting industry, the Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) returns to Nafplio for the ninth time. The 9th MEDYS is scheduled to take place from Saturday, April 27th to Wednesday, May 1st 2024. Save the date!
The capital of Argolis becomes the epicenter of marine tourism for 5 days, hosting in its picturesque harbor a multitude of impressive, luxury leisure boats and their crews. The Mediterranean Yacht Show, which is organized by the Greek Yachting Association (GYA) with the support of the Municipality of Nafplio, is recognized as the most important show of its kind worldwide. It offers the opportunity to an international audience of charter brokers to see closely the vessels available for chartering in Greece and throughout the Eastern Mediterranean, to meet their crews and learn about the features and options they offer. The Mediterranean Yacht Show is an important event in the yachting agenda, because of the large number of participating vessels, the excellent level of services it offers and the idyllic location that hosts it.
The contribution of the MEDYS in the growth and development of yachting tourism in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean is unquestionable, with each year attracting greater global interest from industry professionals. The exhibition brings together central agents, brokers and exhibitors with yachting services and products, placing Greek marine tourism at a global focus.
The Chefs' Competition will also be returning in 2024 to challenge the creativity, talent and skills of the yacht chefs. "Zero Waste" was the theme for 2023: it raised the bar and there is already anticipation, seasoned with a little healthy anxiety, for next year. The judging panel will, as always, be stellar and the organizers have lost no time in reaching out to restaurant chefs, who are cooking up a storm in the culinary world. It takes talent to recognize talent, as they say...
A schedule of social events, including receptions and parties, will add a further dimension to the show, aiming to offer an experience, that is both productive and pleasurable.
