11th annual reception with title partner Bank Vontobel, plus Bang & Olufsen, Axiom Space, Zero-G, & 4Catalyzer Aboard Research Vessel GENE CHASER with ‘Night Before’ Dinner.
Miami, November 28, 2021 – My Yacht® Group (MYG) returns to Miami to host another in its exclusive “Night Before” dinner series, plus its 11th charity superyacht reception, with an incredible selection of returning and new partners aboard, during the 20th iteration of Art Basel Miami Beach.
Vontobel Swiss Wealth Advisors AG returns as title sponsor, fresh from their recent acquisition of UBS Swiss Financial Advisors, making Bank Vontobel the largest Swiss-domiciled wealth manager for US clients seeking an account in Switzerland for diversification purposes. Celebrating over a decade as title sponsor of this event, plus partnerships at many others around the globe, board executives will host key clients and art world guests.
Bang & Olufsen joins the My Yacht family for the first time. Since 1925, the renowned Danish audio company has created iconic audio and home entertainment products to the highest standard of sound, craft and design. More than getting the opportunity to hear the cutting edge Beolab 90 loudspeakers and experience the stunning 83” Beovision Harmony TV, guests in Miami will see examples of the company’s bespoke design capabilities and experience a gold-plated limited edition music system that bridges the gap between iconic design from 1972 and today’s cutting-edge digital technology.
Additionally, MYG continues its series of curated “Night Before” dinners where B&O will showcase products to a hand-selected audience. 5-time US Hall of Fame astronaut Commander Michael Lopez-Alegría, Chief Astronaut of Axiom Space, returns to share his experience of piloting Ax-1, the first all-private mission to the ISS that saw him shepherd 3 private astronauts on an historic 17-day mission that included an extensive array of innovative research on behalf of major medical organizations back on earth including Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, and The Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
ZERO-G, the only commercial opportunity on Earth for everyday people to experience true “weightlessness” without going to space, returns again as partner. Aboard its specially modified Boeing 727, G-FORCE ONE®, weightlessness is achieved by doing aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas. ZERO-G’s passengers can float, flip and soar just like Astronauts do in space. The Zero Gravity Team will embark on its next weightless flight on December 2nd, out of Miami-Opa locka airport.
The reception welcomes guests aboard 185ft research vessel Gene Chaser, the support yacht for ‘mother ship’ M/Y Gene Machine. It features a working research laboratory for many of the companies being shepherded by 4Catalyzer, the biotech startup accelerator founded by Dr. Jonathan Rothberg that has launched Butterfly Network (NYSE: BFLY), Quantum-Si (NASDAQ: QSI), Hyperfine and Liminal Sciences (NASDAQ: HYPR), Detect, Al Therapeutics, Tesseract, and Protein Evolution, all companies that are transforming 21st century medicine and improving our planet by solving today’s most challenging problems across life. Guests will be invited to “Touch The Future” with the many interactive machines aboard including a brain MRI, retinal scanner, and more.
MYG continues to raise awareness for chosen charity partner YachtAid Global (YAG) and its incredible relief efforts. YAG provides humanitarian aid, conservation, and disaster response leadership, with work encompassing global programs, logistics management and consultation for superyachts which want to contribute to the world around them.
The evening will feature a DJ, live music and entertainment, plus large scale art installations, with exquisite food, and libations from several long-term partners: the world’s number one rosé Whispering Angel, plus custom Enchanted Rock and Peach vodka cocktails from Rebecca Creek Distillery.
A distinguished guestlist is set to include Art Basel VIP Collector’s Circle members, Institute of Contemporary Art Board of Trustees, Founders and Patrons, plus international art collectors, artists, gallerists, superyacht, private jet and supercar owners, and international and S. Florida (U)HNW guests.
