2021 MYBA Charter Show Canceled

9 February 2021 By Staff Report

After careful deliberation and consultation with Marina Port Vell, the show managers of the MYBA Charter Show have announced the cancellation of the 2021 edition, which was scheduled to take place from April 26 to 29 in Barcelona. “The decision to halt preparations for the show was a difficult one but necessary as recent developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic together with travel restrictions make holding the event no longer feasible,” they wrote in the February 9 announcement.

Marina Port Vell and the organizers share a sense of responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of all participants, which will always be their primary concern. “We are very disappointed that we will be unable to hold this event, which provides exceptional networking opportunities, showcases our industry's finest, and generates solid business, but we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today,” the announcement stated.

In place of the in-person event, MYBA and Marina Port Vell are looking into alternative ways to engage the superyacht community. They’re certain they can “tap into new avenues that will help our valued members and show stakeholders to mitigate the level of disruption to business” and will share more details about their plans in the coming weeks.
