After teasing the industry during the grand finale of its incredible Pinmar Golf tournament, Pinmar today announced the details of its new, unique and much anticipated industry hospitality event – The Pinmar Festival.
Announcing the event, Pinmar’s CEO Remy Millott said; “I am genuinely excited to announce the launch of the Pinmar Festival. Having hosted the Pinmar Golf tournament for an incredible 31 years we felt it was time for a change, to bring something new and unique to the industry social calendar. And this is it; The Pinmar Festival, it is designed to bring the superyacht industry together for two days of networking and socialising while enjoying a high-quality music and entertainment event, a great way to celebrate the end of the summer season. We all love music in one form or another so what better way to connect us all than a really cool and exclusive live music festival?”
The inaugural Pinmar Festival will be held in the grounds of a stunning Mallorcan manor house on October 15th and 16th 2020. The first of the two days will comprise a networking lunch followed by an interactive business seminar known as “The Pinmar Forecast”. The seminar will be hosted by Awlgrip and moderated by The Superyacht Group and will feature keynote industry speakers discussing issues key to the future of our industry. The day will be rounded off with the infamous Pinmar VIP Party at Cappuccino, Puerto Portals.
The Festival day will commence at 2pm for sponsors and their VIP guests with an array of gourmet catering options, innovative bars, games, entertainment and a mix of chilled live music providing a beautiful laid-back atmosphere to socialise with industry colleagues. As the sun sets, the main doors will open for superyacht crew and industry colleagues to join in the fun, the evening will come alive to the sounds of international DJ’s and live bands from around the world.
Andrew Clemence, Group Marketing Director and the man responsible for producing and delivering this new concept said, “Our aim is to deliver a very engaging, high quality and totally unique hospitality event for our industry partners, sponsors, customers and crew to enjoy. We have selected the most beautiful setting to host the inaugural Pinmar Festival and are now working on securing the right musical line-up to connect with our audience and create a very special and inclusive experience. As well as booking a collection of international bands and DJ’s we are also looking to find some industry bands to showcase their musical talents on stage, giving the day a taste of superyacht industry fun and authenticity.”
Throughout the Festival, Pinmar will be raising further funds for its Pinmar Charities initiative that has been operating for the last 31 years and has delivered €1.115.758 to a range of charities to date. A percentage of all ticket sales will be donated to the Charities Fund from this not-for-profit event.
Pinmar will be reaching out to its industry partners to support and participate in this exciting new event which is planned to tour other major superyacht hubs and become embedded in the industry calendar. Many of the longstanding supporters of The Pinmar Golf have already pledged their support for the Festival including Awlgrip, MB92 and The Superyacht Group.
Commenting on the sponsorship and hospitality opportunities Andrew Clemence said, “this is a brand new event with long-term aspirations to bring the new build and refit sectors together so as well as retaining many of our existing sponsors we are also looking to introduce new partners who may wish to use this opportunity to connect with the global superyacht community. All our sponsors can be assured that the Pinmar Festival will be a professionally managed event providing a relaxed, high quality hospitality experience for senior industry guests to enjoy. I sincerely hope our partners, captains and crew will choose to support the Pinmar Festival and help us to bring a new experience to the industry social calendar.”
