Blue Cape Strategic Business Launch

Blue Cape Strategic Business Launch

 Alderman James Vos, Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, cordially invites you to the launch of Blue Cape at the upcoming Superyachts, cruise ships and the V&A Waterfront virtual event.
The webinar will present you with an opportunity to network, listen to the latest industry initiatives and witness the launch of the City’s newly established Strategic Business Partner – Blue Cape.

​​​​​​​Cape Town is a natural fit for cruise liners and superyachts – and the V&A Waterfront is at the heart of welcoming and hosting visitors. Understanding the value chain associated with, crewing, servicing, hosting and supplying these vessels reveals significant prospects, but simultaneously requires an investment in supporting the needs of this unique sector.

  • POSITIONING CAPE TOWN:  How does Cape Town position itself as a premier destination for Superyachts and Cruise Liners? ​​​​​​​

  • MAXIMISING LOCAL BUSINESS:  How can we maximise local business involvement in the value supply chain with regard to crewing, maintenance, victuals and more ?

  • FACILITIES: What gaps currently exist in accommodating superyachts and cruise liners within the port and the V&A Waterfront - and what are the strategies to address these within realistic timelines?

  • STAKEHOLDERS: To what extent does the expansion of the sector fall to government stakeholders versus industry players?
