Some impressions of the Monaco Yacht Show 2019.

It was my first Monaco Yacht Show as a journalist/blogger/media guy. The application of a press badge for the MYS was the most challenging press access I’ve ever had. Düsseldorf and Hamburg was no problem. After the registration process with a lot of data, I got an automatic e-mail with the information I will get an answer within 15 days. Even after 20 days, I heard nothing. So it was a long time unclear to travel to Monaco because about 900 Euros just for the entry doubles my travel costs for my small media project. But I got significant support from Amels and Damen with daily tickets as a backup solution for my declined press badge application. In the end, I got a press badge when I was there personally to clarify something one day before the show starts. Why a press badge? I have earlier access to the show area to take some photos without a lot of people. Furthermore, some press conferences take place before the show opens its doors officially. Anyway, many, many thanks to Amels/Damen to save my visit – it was a good show, I had good talks and enjoyed the great hospitality of the Dutch companies and the Holland Yachting Group pavillion.
