Superyacht Technology Conference Moves to ISE the world’s biggest AV and Integration show. Barcelona Feb 4/5th 2021. 

With the Superyacht Technology Conference originally scheduled for April 1st 2020, the timing of Covid-19 was very unfortunate for our event. Based on government advice, we rescheduled the conference to the same venue in October 2020. After observing the ever-changing horizon and logistical challenges, we did not feel confident that October would be viable for us to deliver you a thriving dynamic event.

For this reason, we are delighted to inform you we have reached out to the biggest professional AV and integration show in the world, ISE. After several months of negotiation, The Superyacht Technology Conference now joins with ISE (Integrated Systems Europe), moving our event to 4th-5th February 2021ISE tours are available on Feb 3rd.

We have expanded the SYTC from a small auditorium to an 8000m2 private hall including a full conference facility (400 attendees under 2m social distancing or up to 1000 under normal conditions).  We have also expanded our Innovation Lab which is now capable of hosting 50 stands dedicated to the superyacht sector.

Our industry wants innovation, but brokerage and marine trade shows offer limitations in some of the most important and fastest-growing areas such as AV, IoT, smart technology and digital lighting. SYTC will reverse the model, bringing the superyacht sector to the biggest technology show of its type in the world. Meet brands such as Samsung, Intel and Crestron to learn about what is at the cutting edge of technology.


A superyacht conference first

This new date allows us the opportunity to still provide a ticketed superyacht technology first conference, with our focus still very much on Green Energy, AV, Engineering, Entertainment, Sonar, Solar, Lighting, Hydraulics and much more.  We will still offer talks and stands dedicated to the more mechanical and key issues for superyachts such as hydraulics, green yachts, engineering management but add 10 halls of cutting edge technology that in many cases are first world releases that can be adapted to superyachts. This will be marketed to key buyers from shipyards, management, owners’ reps, captains, and technical crew.

Our strategy is to add value and be first off the line in 2021.

What is ISE (Integrated Systems Europe)?

Held annually since 2004, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is the world’s largest tradeshow AV and Integration technology from smart technology, IoT, Cinema, Audio, and control systems including many subsystems such as door entry systems. The 2020 edition drew 1,317 exhibitors and 116,599 individual visits by attendees. Organised by Integrated Systems Events, the show has outgrown its long-standing home in Amsterdam and is moving to the Fira de Barcelona in February 2021.

ISE is the launch platform for new release technology from the world’s leading brands.  We have chosen to partner with ISE to give our industry unprecedented access to cutting edge technology.  You may not have heard of it before, but many shipyards and technical crew already attend this event.


Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, commented:  “The superyacht market represents significant opportunities for the ISE community. It brings together high-end solutions for luxurious living and sophisticated technologies for navigation, communications, and connectivity. It is an important market for many of our major exhibitors. We are delighted to be partnering with Superyacht Technology to bring the Superyacht Technology Conference to ISE 2021 in Barcelona. It is an excellent fit within ISE’s line-up of technology and business strategy conferences, and the partnership is sure to bring new audiences to both brands.”

To further protect our sponsors, speakers, and visitors we have asked for additional measures to be applied to the Superyacht Technology Conference in hall 4.

  • AI crowd tracking and heat detection system to scan all attendees at all entrances.
  • Totally exclusive, no one from ISE will be able to enter Hall 4 SYTC unless they have a pass, however, SYTC delegates can roam freely across the whole of ISE.
  • A private entrance for SYTC attendees only with direct access to Hall 4.
  • A sky walkway giving a view of the show and private access for SYTC attendee.
