Maritime Hospitality SG

The IAMI Maritime Hospitality Sub-Group is made up of volunteering IAMI members who have an interest in and influence within Hospitality and Service education for the Maritime sectors.

Our Key Objective:  “Promoting and Delivering Professional Standards for Luxury Maritime Hospitality”

IAMI are dedicated to ensuring that the objectives for furthering the hospitality & service education platforms are met, along with furthering the recognition of qualifications throughout the relevant maritime industries.


At the start of 2019 IAMI took over the governance of the GUEST Program from the PYA. The GUEST Program provides luxury service and hospitality training to seafarers working in the interior departments within the Super Yacht sectors.

The GUEST Program (Guidelines for Unified Excellent in Service Training), was designed for the Super Yacht sectors and through collaborators with bodies such as the Maritime Skills Alliance and other Hospitality representations and with the aid of global influence and recognition in the industry, the GUEST Program is in a very strong position to continue its current successful evolutionary path.

IAMI is the accreditation body for the GUEST Program, which currently has over 20 Training Providers Worldwide approved, and is the only Internationally Accredited Maritime Hospitality Program available to Crew working in the Luxury Super Yacht sector.
