Bringing my work to new frontiers. I had heard so much about the Monaco boat show, “Bobby you should take a stand at the Monaco boat show, your work will go down really well” – sure !!!, it costs a small fortune to take a stand. I decided to go down and check it out and see what all the fuss was about. Armed with a 3D chart of “Cap Ferrat to Monaco” under my arm I walked the show with the piece on full show by my side – subtle!
Shock & Awe!, boy I did not realise how big super yachts can get! – they are ships!……it’s a different world. After an hour and realising that I was about to get lock jaw, it is time to see how I can “play” in this market. I noticed that while I was looking at the “Ships” , others were looking at my 3D chart by my side. I figured out quickly that the obvious market was corporate gifts for the client !, Here are all of these companies selling boats for millions to a clientele that probably have everything. “Cold selling” is not easy but I have to say that this was a pleasure, every company that I approached was very receptive to the idea, they could see why my work would tick all of the boxes

My trip to Monaco was an eye opener and taught me to keep pushing new markets.
The World is a ship serving as a residential community owned by its residents. I met with the company while in Monaco, we both realised that their clients would be very interested in my work. I now plan on creating an exhibit on board this summer starting in London. More on this in time…..
