Welcome to the Superyacht Technology Conference – ‘SYTC2020’

The first ever conference dedicated purely to superyacht technology, inspiring global speakers and technology thinking leaders. Immersive hands on demos and workshops. Pure inspiring ‘TechTalks’ and knowledge sharing. A dedicated space for the industries tech buyers and providers to learn and be inspired.

Barcelona is a vibrant dynamic tech hub, leading thought innovation for a new generation of tech buyers. A city that reflects the ethos of SYTC 2020.

We have reached out to internationally recognised speakers from across the industry and from the world’s best Bluechip tech companies to bring you some of the most exciting Tech Talks to SYTC2020. Each talk will be restricted to 20mins; written words are banned and boring is simply not on the menu.

The workshops and our specially created Innovation Lab will demo some of the most exciting technology at the cutting edge of the market. Our workshops will let you speak directly to leading superyacht tech suppliers and leading global brands.

Our extended mingling sessions can be spent catching up with your fellow tech inspired delegates or exploring our innovation lab or demo pods.

Why April?
We want a to include solutions for the season, every attendee will get a SYTC2020 Blueprint, a 250-page guide to superyacht technology and follow up via our attendee newsletter. We believe the best way to get new tech sign off by the owner is to show them what you’ve seen and do this while they are on the yacht immersed in the superyacht environment. Why wait until Sep/Oct/Nov when the season ends and the owners go home? Get ahead of the worklist.

Who will attend?

Tech buyers, such as ETO’S/AVIT/ITO officers, , Captains, Engineers and technical crew, owner’s reps, shipyard purchasing managers, buyers and project managers. We have set aside an allocation of courtesy passes for TTI (Top Technology Influencers) and for our Principal/Ambassadors we will also provide free accommodation.

Our singular goal, to drive innovation and provide a dedicated space for inspirational technology.

The SYTC Innovation lab is a chance to see demos and engage directly with suppliers, manufacturers and integrators in face to face workshops.

Learn about everything from DRONE DEFENCE to IMPROVING NVX SKILLS.
