PIBS: Start-ups and superyachts

The Palma International Boat Show takes place from April 24 to 28. For the first time, it will be accompanied by a superyacht forum. Start-ups will also present themselves there.

According to the organizers, the Balearic Superyacht Forum will be the first forum for large yachts in Spain. It will take place in Palma on April 24 and 25. The event is presented by the Balearic Marine Cluster. It is the first international forum for the yachting sector, bringing together regional and international experts to discuss the most important aspects of the industry.

The date for the Balearic Superyacht Forum was not chosen by chance, according to the organizers. It coincides with the first day of the Palma International Boat Show. The choice of this date is intended to expand the event calendar of the boat show.

The Balearic Superyacht Forum was created with the aim of strengthening the competitive position of the Balearic Islands and their nautical business network and to present the Balearic Islands as the most complete region for the yachting sector in all its areas. According to the information provided, this includes ship repair and maintenance, nautical tourism, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Start-ups present themselves for the first time at PIBS

The Balearic Marine Cluster is also organizing the Blue Startup Pitching Competition during the Palma International Boat Show, which rewards €5,000 for innovation and sustainability in the Balearic Islands.

The competition will take place on April 25 at 15:00 in the Palma Auditorium, where the five finalists will have the opportunity to present their project and strategic plan to an audience of over 300 potential investors from the marine sector and a jury of ten experts with extensive experience in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.
