Thailand Yacht Show and Singapore Yacht Show dates announced
20 December, 2017
Singapore-based Verventia Pte Ltd, organisers of the Thailand Yacht Show and Singapore Yacht Show, have announced the 2018 dates for both events.
The third edition of the Thailand Yacht Show will take place 22-25 February, 2018 at Phuket’s Ao Po Grand Marina while the eighth edition of the Singapore Yacht Show will take place 12-15 April, 2018 at ONE°15 Marina in Sentosa Cove.
Andy Treadwell, CEO of Verventia, says, “We are proud to see that both new and returning companies from a wide range of yachting, boating and lifestyle sectors are quickly confirming their presence at the Shows. Our main objective remains to be working together with the authorities in Asia and global industry leaders to create strong and sustainable platforms that will allow the whole Asian boating market to grow by attracting the wealth-generating potential of the superyacht industry.”
Organised in partnership with the Thai government and Tourism Authority of Thailand, one of the main focuses of the Thailand Yacht Show is superyacht charter in Thailand and around the region. It is a unique experiential event that allows potential buyers and charterers to climb aboard and trial a wide range of watercraft including sailboats, sports-fishers, dinghies, tenders, water sport boats and day-cruisers in addition to superyachts.
Held during the Lunar New Year, when Phuket is buzzing with regional visitors, the Show will emphasise how charters and on-the-water activities can contribute to enhance both the yachting lifestyle and tourism in South East Asia.
Following year-on-year success and growth, the 2017 Singapore Yacht Show welcomed an unprecedented 14,000+ visitors in four days, over 20 premières and 150 exhibiting brands.
Singapore is the business hub of South East Asia, and the Singapore Yacht Show is where and when the business of yachting occurs. The very best of the global yachting industry – leaders and owners, the finest shipyards, top yacht designers, main broker agencies and superyacht equipment suppliers – gather for four days of intensive meetings and viewings with the highest net-worth clientele in Asia.
Fully supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, this globally-recognised on-water exhibition showcases the biggest number of world-class yachts in the whole of Asia. The Show’s glamorous parties, power networking, and enviable range of prestige brand partners epitomise the luxury lifestyle.
