The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is an eagerly awaited event on the yachting calendar, where luxury and superyachts command the spotlight. This year, in the midst of the thrill of the show, LA MAISON BLANCHE by IYC shone as a resounding success where clients, partners, and IYC team members alike were able to retreat, network, and enjoy the hospitality and events on offer.
Following the resounding success of the introduction of THE LOUNGE by IYC at Monaco Yacht Show 2023, LA MAISON BLANCHE by IYC represented the first time that IYC dedicated a space for entertainment, relaxation, and the chance to discover our esteemed partners, along with many other delightful offerings in Fort Lauderdale.
Located at the very iconic waterfront property by the same name, LA MAISON BLANCHE by IYC played host to a series of events, drawing together a mix of partners, clients, Captains, and enthusiasts. The introduction fo the mansion as a dedicated space for hospitality at this year's FLIBS stood as a testament to IYC's steadfast dedication to delivering a genuinely distinctive and unforgettable experience for clients globally.
We wish to extend a special thank you to the partners that made this experience a resounding success. From tenders provided by JCraft and Rand to luxury cars provided by GoRentals, our clients were taken to and from the mansion in style. Thank you to Robina Benson and her team who curated a beautiful selection of indoor and outdoor furniture for the mansion, inspired by the world of yachting that brought the space to life and created a beautiful conversation with the art selected and displayed throughout by Space Gallery St Barts.
We would also like to thank our partners who contributed to bringing the villa to life with a variety of fun events. From Sheltair's Wings, Wheels and Water party, to Haute Living and The Macallan's private dinner and tasting experience and Better Than Reality introducing a little mystery and fun with their Spot The Spy game in the bar. We also thank our wine and spirits partners who added flavor to our events, WineAccess, Tequila Komos, and XO who contributed together with Bollinger Champagne, as well as our exceptional team of caterers throughout the week.
Above all, we thank Tim Elmes of The Elmes Group at Compass for the stunning venue we were proud to call home for the week. For a full list of partners, click here.
