The Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) is preparing to return to the global yachting calendar and the Greek Yachting Association (GYA) is delighted to announce the show dates for 2022.

The 7th MEDYS, the world’s largest exhibition of commercial crewed charter yachts, will be held from April 30 to May 4 2022, once again in the picturesque port of Nafplion in Greece.

The MEDYS is an exclusive B2B event that brings together brokers from all corners of the globe, encouraging them to connect and do business in an environment that is second to none. The 2019 edition saw 102 luxury crewed yachts and 450 international brokers from 31 different countries attending. Following this success, all eyes are on the 7th MEDYS which promises to be yet another impressive expression of the flourishing Greek yachting charter market.

8th Mediterranean Yacht Show

Having emerged as one of the premier events for industry professionals, the 8th Mediterranean Yacht Show (MEDYS) turned the international spotlight onto Greece once again, as the host of the world’s largest crewed yacht charter show.

It is worth noting that yachts measuring 24 meters and above in length have the right to participate in the exhibition, making the MEDYS the only sector event of similar scope in Greece that is exclusively addressed to the upper segment of luxury yachting. At this year's Show, 92 yachts with a cumulative LOA of 3.5 kilometers were present, with a waiting list (due to limited space in the port of Nafplion) that surpassed the numbers of every previous year. In order to fully grasp the MEDYS’ size, it is worth considering that the number of participating yachts far exceeded that of comparable shows. Confirming the event's success is, among others, the significantly larger presence of industry professionals from all over the world, with more than 750 participants from 31 countries.

Yachting tourism attracts an increasing number of visitors to Greece and MEDYS is the perfect occasion to highlight the region as one of the top yachting destinations globally. The show owes its success to the large number of registered yachts, the great turn-out of industry professionals from all corners of the globe and the contribution of the local CAs. It is organized each year by GYA under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism and with the kind support of the Municipality of Nafplion.
