International Superyacht Society Annual Awards Gala10/15/2018

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – The 29th annual Design & Leadership Award Gala will take place on October 31, 2018 at the extraordinary Broward Center for the Performing Arts. More than three hundred of the industry’s most influential professionals will attend to build relationships and to recognise to this year’s award recipients.


The Gala begins at 1830h with a Reception in the elegant concourse of the Performing Arts Center. Following the awards ceremony, attendees are invited to gather at an after party for dinner with live music and dancing.


On the heels of the highly successful International Superyacht Society event at the Monaco Yacht Club during the Monaco Yacht Show, the Society moved directly into finalizing plans for the annual Gala during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The Gala is another one of the Society’s notable events intended to bring together the best of the superyacht industry while recognizing the best in the industry.


With over 900 members representing 30 nationalities, the Gala is one of the venues the Society utilises to recognise and encourage the extraordinarily talented people who design, build, support and crew the world’s most magnificent yachts. 


The beautiful motor yacht USHER will be on display to promote a raffle for an evening cruise and dinner for 10 passengers. All funds raised will go to benefit The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center. This is an extraordinary opportunity to do good while enjoying a wonderful cruise with your friends and family. You can purchase a raffle ticket for $100 here.
