THE PROMOTIONAL CHARTER WEEK

What is a promotional charter week?

A fleet operator can put at disposal one charter week for the organizer. Periods has to be between May 13th, 2018 and October 7th, 2018. (other periods can be accepted on request). The promotional week is a part of ICE since the very beginning. It has two major purposes;
1. to help attract charter brokers – Brokers who have high travel costs to reach ICE are offered free promotional weeks to use them or resell them
2. to promote the fleets – a broker might use a promotional week of a fleet he hasn’t worked with before and thus start a new cooperation
A promo week must be attractive but should also be in an off-season period where as such it will not create a loss of revenue for the fleet operator.
Mostly these are weeks on 3-cabin sailing yachts in the beginning or the end of the sailing season.
There is no special discount involved as compensation for the promo week – it just prevents rising costs.
If a fleet operator chooses not to provide a promo week, a surcharge of 300 eur on the booth price will be added.
The promo is offered as a long term option for a particular period. The option is in the name of the organizer.
The period must be defined during the registration process but it can be changed later on if the fleet operator and organizer both agree.
If the option is not put and defined in the registration period it will be seen as the absence of the promo and the surcharge will apply.
Once the promo is assigned to a charter broker, the fleet operator and broker will receive written confirmation and the option will be renamed in the name of the broker.
The charter is free of charge but all extras and obligations stay as per regular business practices.
In some countries a charter week cannot be given free of charge and must involve special contracting; on request, such contracts will be provided by the organizer.
Exceptionally, if both fleet operator and exhibitor agree, the off-season promotional boat can be used in a different period as the last minute but not earlier than 2 days prior to requested
departure date. Exhibitor will approve or deny the last minute use according to own capabilities. If the promotional week is forwarded to a charter broker, the process stays the same except the recipient of the week is not the organizer but the charter broker.
