The Monaco Yacht Show is an annual anticipated couple of days on the yachting calendar, where the world's most luxurious and newest superyachts take center stage. This year, amidst the glitz and excitement of the show, THE LOUNGE by IYC emerged as a beacon of hospitality.
Nestled steps away from the heart of the Monaco Yacht Show, THE LOUNGE by IYC played host to a series of events, drawing an eclectic mix of partners, clients, press, captains, and enthusiasts, serving as a testament to IYC's unwavering commitment to providing a truly unique and unforgettable experience.
Below, we share a recap of the events and the remarkable success THE LOUNGE achieved. From exclusive partnerships to unforgettable client interactions, from captivating press engagements to interactions with seasoned captains, THE LOUNGE by IYC left an indelible mark on those who got to experience it.
On Wednesday evening of the show, IYC was delighted to host Captains' and crew in THE LOUNGE for drinks and canapés to express our gratitude for their hard work and dedication. Connections were fostered, new ones made, and cheers were had to the start of an exciting and successful MYS.
