The fifth edition of the Thailand Yacht Show is set to take place at Royal Phuket Marina from 9- 12 January 2020 during the island’s peak visitor season. Targeting yachting afficionados and wealthy lifestyle enthusiasts from all over the region, the yacht show is a key marketing platform and revenue generator for the local industry, as well as positioning Thailand in its rightful place as the primary Asian destination in the global yachting arena.
Over four days just after the New Year, the yacht show turns the marina into a bustling hub for all things luxury, highlighting Phuket as Asia’s premier cruising destination and a maritime heaven for leisure boating enthusiasts. The on-water display is a first-class array of luxury yacht models, including several premieres, from the region’s leading brokers and the world’s biggest boat builders.
Visitors to the Thailand Yacht Show 2020 will find a whole host of new features, including interactive demonstrations, special children’s day events, art exhibitions and an artistic masterclass, live music, fashion shows and a veritable smorgasbord of food and beverage options – including brand new floating bar in the heart of the marina.
Andy Treadwell, CEO of event organiser Verventia, optimistic about the future for Phuket as a hub for high-spending yacht tourism said: “Phuket is now recognised as the centre of one of the most beautiful yachting destinations in the world – the ASEAN seas rank alongside the Mediterranean and the Caribbean holiday cruising grounds.”
