PHUKET: The Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX) has secured its home for the future with the signing of a five-year host venue agreement with Royal Phuket Marina (RPM), the marine and luxury lifestyle destination on Phuket’s east coast.

Having recently announced the dates for 2014 being moved to the popular January 9-12 timing, organisers say they are laying strong foundations for the next decade.

“The 2013 Phuket International Boat Show was the 10th Anniversary edition and over the last decade the event has seen continued growth and is the undisputed leading consumer boat show in Asia. We are now looking forward to delivering another decade of success for the regional marine industry, and are very happy to announce the signing of a five-year agreement with current home and official host venue going forward, Royal Phuket Marina,” said Andy Dowden, show director.

Launched in 2003, PIMEX pioneered large in-water displays with marina-side indoor exhibition space in a marine and luxury lifestyle show that has grown to become best-in-class in the region, with marine brands such as Sunseeker, Ferretti, Pershing, Princess, Nautor’s Swan, Lagoon and many more, together with luxury brands such as Jaguar, Maserati, Land Rover and Lexus, to name just a few, all showcasing at PIMEX.

PIMEX 2014 will boast 2,500sqm of indoor exhibition space, outdoor displays marina-side, and in excess of 60 boats in-the-water, making it the largest show of its kind in Asia.

The official host venue and home of the Phuket International Boat Show is Royal Phuket Marina, with berthing for 100 boats up to 35 metres in length, surrounded by villas and condominiums aimed at the luxury market.

Talking at the recent signing, Gulu Lalvani, chairman of Royal Phuket Marina said, “We have been the home of PIMEX since the opening of Royal Phuket Marina in 2005 and are very excited to sign a five-year host venue agreement and to enter this new era with the organizers.”

“We recognise the importance of PIMEX to the regional marine and lifestyle industry. It is firmly established as a key marine event in the global calendar, attracting interested buyers from all over the world each year. RPM and PIMEX have the same goals; to help promote Phuket and the marine industry and marine leisure lifestyle, and together we have helped make Phuket the undisputed cruising capital of Asia. We look forward to working closely with the organisers for the next five years and beyond.”

On display at PIMEX 2014 will be a stunning array of yachts and marine equipment, luxury cars and goods, and some of the finest properties on the island, set against a backdrop of marina-side cocktail parties and VIP functions held over the four days from January 9-12, 2014.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV have been proud sponsors of this event since its launch ten years ago, and will be covering the proceedings this year on their ‘Phuket Today’ show, the island’s only national television program, broadcast daily on True Visions (channels 99 and 58).
