The event, titled Protection of art and superyacht interiors: the practical care of art at sea, will address damage to valuables, crew knowledge, tax and cultural heritage seizure in an effort to help reduce the risk of financial and cultural loss of art at sea. It takes place on March 1.

It is hosted by The National Maritime Museum in association with Pandora Art Services and organisers hope it will help in their efforts to create cross-industry best practice standards where damage occurs in working marine interiors.

A number of practical topics will be covered including material damage, insurance claims, crew training and tax.

Speakers include representatives from Clyde & Co, Momart, Hall Dickinson and PwC. There will also be moderated discussions and networking opportunities culminating in an evening reception and a private tour of the Queens House.

Registration can be found here.
