CrewShow is delighted to announce its first Caribbean event, “CrewShow- St Maarten” which will take place on Saturday 9th January 2010 at the IGY Marina Isle de Sol. The show will be personally hosted by CrewShow founder Celia Wagstaff, together with Brian Deher marina manager for Island Global Yachting. Another great asset to CrewShow St Maarten is Ann E. McHorney, who heads The Sacks Group Caribbean division, and runs Select Yachts NV. Realising what CrewShow can offer the island she has signed up both companies as major sponsors and in addition, has offered the use of her staff and office in Plaza del Lago, Simpson Bay, for the headquarters of CrewShow St Maarten. Celia is really excited at the prospect of bringing CrewShow to the Caribbean, especially with Brian and Ann E. on the team providing local knowledge and expertise. She is convinced that her concept of providing a show especially designed around the crew will be as welcomed there as it was in Europe. “The crew are the working heart of any yacht” explained Celia “they are often responsible for expenses totalling thousands with little recognition or help. I realised there was a gap in the marine trade shows, an event aimed exclusively to crew providing them with all the support and information they could possibly need. One of Crewshow’s distinguishing features is to be as interactive as possible, a really fun day out aimed specifically to strengthen the bonds between companies and crew”
If the events in Europe are anything to go by the crew in St Maarten are in for a treat. The shows in Antibes and Mallorca proved hugely popular with a wide range of exhibitors taking part showcasing products as diverse as specialist foodstuffs and crew insurance alongside advice from crew agents and financial advisors. “There will be something for everyone” promised Celia “as well as a guaranteed day of fun”
The show runs from morning to evening in one of the best venues on the island, make sure you make a date in your diary now to be certain that you are part of what promises to be one of the island’s most talked about events in 2010.
