The World Superyacht Awards moves east in 2012
Boat International Media is delighted to announce that the seventh annual World Superyacht Awards will take place in the magical city of Istanbul, Turkey at the luxurious Çırağan Palace Kempinski on 5 May, 2012.
The ancient city of Istanbul straddles the narrow Bosphorus Strait separating Europe and Asia, and with one foot in each continent embodies the best of both cultures. A city variously called Byzantium, Constantinople and more recently Istanbul, it has been the capital of three Empires, each leaving a heritage of architecture, places of worship and monuments.
Once an Ottoman palace, the Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul is located on the European shores of the Bosphorus with spectacular views over the strait. A 5 star resort, it is the first Turkish member of The Leading Hotels of the World. Its 313 luxurious rooms include 20 suites in the hotel and 11 suites in the historical palace.
Special rates of accommodation at the Çırağan Palace Kempinski are exclusively available to guests attending the World Superyacht Awards in Istanbul. Further details and information on how to book can be found here.
We look forward to welcoming a distinguished guest list of the world's leading industry professionals and superyacht owners to the prize giving in May 2012.
