BWA Yachting is the official sponsor for MYBA Charter Show 2017
The leading provider of marine agency services to superyacht owners and their crews around the world, BWA Yachting, is delighted to announce that they will be the Official Show Sponsor of the MYBA Charter Show for 2017. BWA Yachting will play a key role in promoting the well-known Mediterranean charter show taking place at OneOcean Port Vell in Barcelona between 24th and 27th of April 2017.

BWA Yachting is excited about its new role, especially given the fact that BWA Yachting Spain had the highest number of port calls for the company this year, making it the new go-to yachting destination. The Spanish team coordinated the port calls from the company´s offices in all the main Spanish yachting destinations, such as Barcelona, Ibiza, Mallorca, Marbella and Tarragona amongst others. Managing Partner of BWA Yachting Spain, Antonella Della Pietra adds, “The move of MYBA to Barcelona could not have come at a better time, given how popular Spain has recently become for yachts. By combining OOPV’s pristine facilities with BWA Yachting’s excellent industry expertise and professionalism, the 2017 MYBA show is sure to raise the bar and provide a completely new experience to those in attendance, and I cannot wait to see it all unfold!”

BWA Yachting’s CEO, Stefano Tositti, says “We are thrilled to be working with MYBA and to be part of such a worthwhile event. There is a strong alignment between our two organizations’ commitments to promoting high standards of professional ethics, rules, and skills within the yachting industry. Thanks to the work carried out by the MYBA organization during the past two decades, our industry has developed immeasurably. We are excited to have the opportunity to play a part in developing and growing the MYBA Charter Show further.”

The MYBA Charter Show is one of the most important international shows dedicated to charter professionals and superyachts. Barcelona and OneOcean Port Vell will play host to the annual charter show for the next three consecutive years, starting in April 2017. Barcelona was chosen to host the next editions of MYBA over Genoa and Nice. In addition to Barcelona being one of the world’s leading cities, OneOcean Port Vell is also an extremely attractive marina to host such an event. After a recent multi-million pound investment in January 2015, OOPV provides unrivalled marina facilities and infrastructure, making it a promising host for 2017.

“We are pleased to welcome BWA as the headline sponsor of the 29th MYBA Charter show”, said Fiona Maureso, MYBA President. “Their expertise and global reach are a perfect match for our flagship charter show and we are delighted with this exciting new cooperation” We are very pleased to have this exceptional sponsorship from BWA Yachting for the Show” added James Graham-Cloete, MYBA board member. “Furthermore, in the tradition of continuing to improve the show year on year, we have some wonderful innovations in the making.
