The seminar focuses on the big picture issues as well as getting into the detail of security of tenure, leases and valuation methodologies.

The programme is currently being finalised but speakers include: Dan Hughes CMM, Business Development Director at Camper & Nicholsons Marinas Limited; Ian Froome, Partner at Vail Williams LLP and Darren Vaux, Director at Empire Marina Bobbin Head.

Sarah Dhanda, Chief Officer of Membership and Services at British Marine commented: “I am really excited about the opportunity to run this new seminar alongside the Marina & Yard Pavilion at METSTRADE 2017. Attendees will be able to combine the learning and networking opportunities it provides with a trip to the METSTRADE Show to review the best of Marina and Boatyard equipment from around the world.”

This year over 65 marina equipment and material suppliers will be present in the Marina & Yard Pavillion (MYP) making it the world's largest concentration of exhibitors from the marina & yard industry in a business-to-business environment. Sarah Westdijk, Exhibition Manager Marina & Yard Pavilion is very pleased to host the seminar this year: “The success of the Marina & Yard Pavilion over recent years has transformed it into the number one trade show for the international marina industry. Endorsed by the ICOMIA Marinas Group from the outset, I am delighted that the Global Marina Institute has committed to the MYP this year and selected the show as the ideal platform for a seminar for marina professionals.”
