2007 Marseilles


The 3rd Commodores' Forum was hosted in France by the Société Nautique de Marseille 27-30 September 2007. The Forum combined a host of social activities designed to promote relationship building with two days of intensive conference presentations. Topics included: sponsorship and fundraising, corporate governance best practice, club one design, bilateral and multilateral relationships; cruising grounds and environmental issues.

A gala dinner held in the historic Marseille Chamber of Commerce dining hall, originally opened by Napolean, was a fitting finale to the proceedings. Delegates also took part in an exciting ocean race on the Mediterranean, and there was an extensive partner programme.
