The luxurious 400-year-old Bio-Hotel Stanglwirt in the Austrian Tyrol is this year’s venue for the sixth global Superyacht Design Symposium. On February 24–25, the world’s top superyacht designers, owners, and big industry players will meet to discuss the evolution of upscale nautical design. Expert talks and debate will be punctuated with cocktails, dinners, and skiing, with the ShowBoats Design Awards as a highlight.
Hosted by Boat International Media, with Swarovski as its main sponsor, the ceremony will be held on February 24 at Swarovski Crystal Worlds, the famous fantasy crystalline chambers created by Austrian artist, André Heller. Selected by a jury of yacht owners, designers, stylists, and senior yacht crew, 2013’s top designers and design teams will receive the Neptune awards.
