Newport Harbor Corporation (NHC)—the creator and producer of the Newport Yacht & Lifestyle Collection—announced today the dates of this inaugural and re-invented way to promote superyachts and the rich array of opulent products that owners and their families and friends enjoy. Slated for 16-19 June 2011, this new event is being created by a company known for its unwavering customer relations, extensive hospitality services, established event management expertise and proven track record in meeting the needs of the industries they do business with.

The concept essential in the designing of the Newport Yacht & Lifestyle Collection has at its core the idea that superyacht owners and their guests, captains and crew and the industry that supports their way of life will widely benefit from an entirely new way of experiencing new builds, brokerage and charter yachts. More, ancillary products such as fine art, automobiles, jewelry and private aircraft will appeal to attendees while activities and programming will add significant meaning to their experience.

Recognizing the need for industry input, in March 2010, leading builders, brokers, charter firms and marketers—all of whom represented the international superyacht industry—met at Newport Harbor Corporation’s Relais & Châteaux property, Castle Hill Inn & Resort, for two days of meetings designed to define the details of the new event.

The elegance of Newport, Rhode Island—and the fertile cruising grounds of the North East Coast—beckon. The protected waterways around Newport, the proximity of the private Quonset airfield and Newport helipad (as well as Providence’s TF Green Airport) make access easy.

Capitalizing on this particularly well-suited infrastructure, planners intend to provide attendees a personalized—even pampered—experience as they visit Newport. Hospitality booths, water taxis and concierge services are intended to pamper guests, ensuring their enjoyment of the event.

Newport’s historical and yachting significance and the notable panache of her mansions and aesthetics provide an unrivalled environment for yacht hops, parties and entertainment programming.

Exhibitors will include yacht companies, destination marketers, and luxury lifestyle companies and products.

Programs geared toward the ultra and high net worth attendees will include design and build forums, the ins and outs of chartering, technology round tables, chef and wine tastings, parties and more.

Opportunities and inquiries for charitable organizations and for event sponsorship are encouraged.
