St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. New opportunities to network, learn, shine and certify all in a world-class venue are what yacht brokers and crewed yachts can anticipate at the 2022 USVI Charter Yacht Show. Set for November 12-15 and hosted by the Virgin Islands Professional Charter Association (VIPCA) at IGY Marinas’ Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas, this fall’s show is a ‘must-do.’
Build. Learn. Shine. Certify. These are the keywords that spotlight what is new at the 2022 USVI Charter Yacht Show,” says Oriel Blake, VIPCA’s Executive Director. “Charter brokers repeatedly emphasize the importance of not only meeting new crew but BUILDING relationships with crew of existing 2023 bookings, so we added several new networking opportunities. We also are hosting breakfast seminars with professionals and government officials for LEARNING the latest news in the industry and a seminar especially for new crew too.
