Motorsport and yachting to mingle in Monaco

This year’s Motor Sport Business Forum will offer even more value for delegates, sponsors and exhibitors as it is running in tandem with the World Yacht Racing Forum. The two world's will come together with a jointly-hosted cocktail event at the end of the first day. The ‘Track and Ocean’ cocktail party will represent the first-ever networking opportunity for delegates to share business opportunities that co-exist between these high profile sports.

"The parallels between global motor sport and world class sailing are well-known. Both are multi-billion dollar industries which attract the highest levels of sponsorship and technical know-how," says Motor Sport Business Forum event director Simon Berger ."We are proud to host the first-ever event to bring the sailing and motor sport industries together."

The full conference programme will be released in the coming weeks and is expected to include even more high profile representatives from the global motor racing industry. With growing interest from motor sport markets across the world, the event is set to be the biggest Forum yet. The exhibition area for 2008 has been expanded but space is already at a premium.

Almost 70 per cent of the available space has been booked or reserved and almost all of last year’s exhibitors have confirmed their intention to return.
