Asia-Pacific Superyachts to join Phuket International Boat Show

PHUKET: Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA) will be exhibiting at this year’s Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) and Singapore Yacht Show (SYS). APSA members will be on hand to offer comprehensive information about the Asia-Pacific region, the association, its work and its member companies.

“It is great that APSA has the support of the Informa Yacht Group and the APSA membership is delighted to be exhibiting at both the Singapore Yacht Show and Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) in 2012,” said Colin Dawson, Chairman of APSA.

Both events offer extensive opportunities for APSA members to meet other members and encounter potential business contacts from Singapore, Thailand and other Asia-Pacific countries.

The Asia-Pacific Superyacht Conference 2012, on April 25-26, is also an important networking opportunity for industry professionals in the region to learn more about the key issues affecting the superyacht industry in the region.

APSA’s stand at PIMEX and high-profile representation at the preceding conference will provide a golden opportunity for APSA members to network with potential clients from the United States, Europe and other countries outside of the Asia-Pacific region.

APSA committee members Colin Dawson, Gareth Twist and Tork Buckley will also be speaking at the conference on a variety of superyacht topics.

“Organizations such as APSA and regional industry events like the SYS are fundamental to the development of the yachting industry in this region,” said SYS Managing Director Andy Treadwell.

“A growing demand is now palpable, and APSA and SYS will continue to foster this platform through which new buyers can access the industry and lifestyle, the global industry can access a new market, whilst old and new owners alike can discover the region’s exceptional cruising grounds,” he added.

PIMEX takes place at the Royal Phuket Marina from March 27 to April 1.

The Singapore Yacht Show 2012 takes place at ONEº15 Marina Club on April 27-29.
