Engagement Surveys (Market, Client and Team)
The Superyacht Industry requires continuous engagement: either by your team, with the market or with clients. We at ACREW believe the 3 steps to business success are:
An engaged & energized team/ Optimised market engagement/ Excellent client engagement
We strongly believe that through our 3 baseline measurements and surveys we will provide quantifiable solutions to improve the key decision making criteria, your reputation.
Captain & Broker Familiarization Trips
A new concept that works- and boosts the reputation of your Shipyard & Refit Yard.
ACREW will invite targeted audience such as Charter Brokers, Captains, Chief Stewardesses and Pursers to visit your yard. The objective is to engage with high end guests that do not know your harbor well enough to promote it to their clients.
The perfect opportunity to position your brand in the market as a key superyacht hub.
The Superyacht Industry requires continuous engagement.
As a niche market, engagement is essential as the purchasing process relies very much on referrals and proven concepts, familiarity and trust.
