As every meeting planner knows, an engaged audience is vital to a successful presentation. But this can be tough in a venue where guests can wander away, check voicemail or, worst of all, grab a bite and bolt. New York-based World Yacht offers a solution bound to float any planner's boat. Its new “Captive Audience” charter cruise offers the “Tech Check,” where attendees can stow their phones, PDAs and other distracting devices in a secure area; the “SOS Concierge,” which keeps guests alert with coffee; and an audio system that broadcasts the program throughout the boat, allowing attendees to stay tuned-in while out on deck. The cruises run from two to four hours and can accommodate 50 to 500 guests. “We're seeing an increased interest from high-end luxury planners because of our value, service standards and added offerings,” says Lawrence Moran, general manager of World Yacht. “Plus, you can't beat the view.” For more information, visit www.worldyacht.com.
