The spectacular superyachts on display at this year's Monaco Yacht Show

Over the next few days, the biggest names in the international luxury yachting sector will gather to witness the extraordinary sight of some of the largest and most expensive superyachts in the world convened along a single port.

The Monaco Yacht Show, which runs from September 27 to 30 this year, brings an estimated 30,000 visitors to the tiny country on the French Mediterranean coast for what is undoubtedly the most glamorous event in the yachting calendar.

Now in its 32nd edition, the prestigious superyacht show draws in prospective buyers, designers, builders, suppliers, brokers and superyacht enthusiasts from across the globe.

"Right now, the bay is full, full, full of yachts on anchor, and they're over 50 meters," superyacht consultant Marcela Royer tells CNN Travel. "So this is where the big boys are berthed right now."

Johan Pizzardini, head of communications and media for the Monaco Yacht Show, describes the show, held over four days at Monaco's Port Hercule, as "the pinnacle of the industry."

"We have 45 yachts that will make their world debut here – new deliveries," he tells CNN Travel.

"Half of the fleet is less than two years old. It's the peak of the higher segment of the super yachting industry. Something that all of the industry has been waiting for."

According to Royer, who lives in Monaco, missing the show is pretty much out of the question for the big players in the industry.

"If you're not there, then you don't exist," she says. "And your competitor says, 'Oh look, they're not at the show anymore.'

"So everybody attends for brand awareness and visibility. "
