Event Benefits

Why should you enter this unique

industry event…

Don’t miss a unique event that provides a great opportunity to entertain your customers, reward your employees, meet new contacts and give something back:

Industry Networking

The event creates a superb environment to facilitate vendor independent industry networking, bringing together many players in a way trade shows and conferences simply can't. You will have access to around 350 industry professionals from many of the big players of the industry in a relaxed and sociable environment.

Corporate Hospitality and Customer Entertainment

Sailing is a great corporate hospitality activity and provides a compelling focus in close quarters to a captive audience. The event has proven to be an excellent and highly memorable landmark event for the majority of participants, many of whom have declared this as the best corporate hospitality event they have ever attended.

Team Building

In the current economic climate many companies have reduced the time and money they invest in teambuilding. Yacht racing requires co-operation at every level and The EMC Silicon Cup offers significant value from a team building perspective, which can benefit client / supplier relations as much as intercompany relations.

Giving Something Back

The fundraising element of the event is significant yet not the central focus. The aim is to do something really worthwhile without distracting from the other three focus areas. Historically every penny raised by the various activities (entry fees, gala dinner, raffle, games and so on) is donated towards a small selection of charities.

"Staying ahead in business today needs commitment, drive, motivation and teaming. The time we spent over the past couple of days will not only be memorable but also highlight what commitment, drive, motivation and teaming can achieve." Alistair - Microsoft
