IDEA’s Customer Success and Product Manager Jan Langweg attended the Young Professionals in Yachting (YPY) Superyacht Summit in Pellworm from 5th – 8th May 2022.

It was a great networking opportunity and Jan met fellow professionals ranging from designers, suppliers, crew, captains and engineers to management companies, law firms and shipyards.

The event was very well organised by YPY Germany and M-Yachts with top-notch hospitality, an event agenda rich of social activities, engaging panels and group workshops on hot topics of the superyacht industry.

It was great to share knowledge, meet peers in the industry and spread the word about IDEA! Enjoy some pictures of the fun (especially the mudlfat walk!).
