Superyacht Events, a division of The Yacht Report Group, is pleased to announce the Superyacht InnovatioNZ 2011 conference, which will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from the 12 – 14 October later this year at the brand new Auckland Viaduct Events Centre.

This event, which is a completely new event developed in association with New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, is intended to bring together key figures from the superyacht industry, from both onshore and offshore. 120 delegates will spend two full days brainstorming and creating innovations and ideas that can ultimately improve and develop more efficient, logical, intelligent and profitable ways of building and operating large yachts. Discussion at the event will be focused on six core disciplines –

- Design, Manufacturing & Engineering.
- IT, AV, Communications and Electronics.
- Materials, Coatings & Surfaces.
- Energy, Power & the Environment.
- Propulsion, Systems & Operation.
- Business, Investment & Partnership

Superyacht InnovatioNZ intentionally coincides with the Rugby World Cup (RWC), being held in New Zealand this autumn, with large numbers of visitors, including leading business figures, expected in New Zealand throughout the tournament. The conference will conclude just prior to the semi-final matches of the RWC, which take place on the 15th and 16th of October, allowing attendees to stay on after the conference’s close and enjoy thrilling games of world class rugby.

Details of the full programme of the Superyacht InnovatioNZ conference will soon be made available at and, however you can register your interest in attendance at the website or by contacting the Superyacht Events team.

In addition to their partnership on the SuperyachtInnovatioNZ conference, The Yacht Report Group has also confirmed their official media partnership of the Superyacht Captains Forum – detailed on – which will be held in Auckland on the 15 – 16 of September, and the 2012 Millennium Cup, being hosted in Auckland next February.

Georgina Lucey, Events Director at Superyacht Events commented:

“We anticipate that the inaugural Superyacht Innovationz and our two media partnered events will maximise the opportunities presented by the RWC, and subsequent visitors to the country, to help develop the marine industry within New Zealand and in turn benefit the industry as a whole.”
