Lineup confirmed for Innovation Corner at Palma Superyacht Village

Innovation Corner at Palma Superyacht Village 2023

The lineup for the first Innovation Corner at this year’s Palma Superyacht Village (27th-30th April) has been confirmed.

Hosted by Yachting Ventures, the Innovation Corner is a space for start-ups to show new and emerging technologies, and aims to promote a dialogue between startups and wider industry professionals.

Palma Superyacht Village takes place alongside the Palma International Boat Show, the
