In September of 2020, the Mediterranean Yacht Show will be introduced, for the first time ever, in virtual form!

The cancellation of the 2020 Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) was a difficult and unpleasant decision for us and one that left a void on many levels. In the six years during which it has taken place in the port of Nafplion, the MEDYS has become one of the most anticipated B2B events of its kind, the largest charter show worldwide and is recognised for the unique manner in which it brings charter professionals together. So we decided do something about it. 

In September of 2020, the MEDYS will be presented, for the first time ever in virtual form, via a specially designed platform of the organisation’s official website . The Greek Yachting Association (GYA) has decided to support the superyacht sector and yachting in our country, as well as the vital relationships between professionals in the field, by creating the first ever Virtual Charter Show.

The port of Nafplion will “come alive” on-screen with an impressive fleet of motor yachts, sailing yachts and motor sailors in position and ready to receive the virtual visits of interested brokers from all over the world. Through this particularly user-friendly platform, each user will be able to enjoy a virtual tour of the participating yachts, be informed about the full spectrum of services and options that they offer, and come into direct contact with Central Agents for all charter-related information.

The MEDYS, which is one the most significant events on the international yachting calendar, is organised by the GYA with the participation of a plethora of yachting agencies and showcases some of the finest yachts available for charter in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean. It has been an important business tool and a source of valuable information for charter brokers and it would have been a shame for it to be missing from your 2020 agenda in some form.

The 7th Mediterranean Yacht Show will take place from the 22nd to the 25th of April 2021 in the port of Nafplion, organised by the Greek Yachting Association and with the invaluable cooperation and support of the Municipality of Nafplion.

Until we meet again in April of 2021, we hope you enjoy the Virtual Charter Show!

MEDYS Virtual

8th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as one of the premier events for industry professionals, the 8th Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) turned the international spotlight onto Greece once again, as the host of the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show.

It is worth noting that yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the exhibition, making the MEDYS the only sector event of similar scope in Greece that is exclusively addressed to the upper segment of luxury yachting. At this year's Show, 92 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.5 kilometers were present, with a waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplion) that surpassed the numbers of every previous year. In order to fully grasp the MEDYS’ size, it is worth considering that the number of participating yachts far exceeded that of comparable shows. Confirming the event's success is, among others, the significantly larger presence of industry professionals from all over the world, with more than 750 participants from 31 countries.

Yachting tourism attracts an increasing number of visitors to Greece and MEDYS is the perfect occasion to highlight the region as one of the top yachting destinations globally. The show owes its success to the large number of registered yachts, the great turn-out of industry professionals from all corners of the globe and the contribution of the local CAs. It is organized each year by GYA under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and with the kind support of the Municipality of Nafplion.
