PHUKET: From small trailer-boats to luxury sailing and motor yachts, the on-water line-up for the upcoming Phuket International Marine Expo (PIMEX) is set to be the best yet.

Virtually all of the major dealers and brokers in Thailand and the region are signed up and will represent all of the major global brands, including Ferretti, Pershing, Riviera, Jeanneau, Cantiere Della Marche, Riva, Crownline, Azimut, Lagoon, Swan Nautor, Beneteau, Gulf Craft, Formula, Majesty, Princess, Sunseeker, Fairline, Tiara Yachts, Selene Ocean Trawlers, San Lorenzo, Fontaine Pajot, Island Spirit, Hanse and Wider Yachts Asia.

The exhibition’s 11th edition will take place at Royal Phuket Marina from January 9-12, 2014.

A number of new businesses never seen before at PIMEX will also exhibit this year, with charter agents and equipment and services suppliers having reserved prime indoor space.

Confirmed are South East Asia Sales and Service, Marina Systems International, Toyobo Thailand, Stauff Thailand, Raymarine, Respo Trailers, QBE Marine Insurance and Seiwa from Italy, along with an Italian delegation of companies and the Italian Thai Chamber of Commerce.

Ocean Marina, Royal Phuket Marina, and Krabi’s newly opened Port Takola Marina will be offering berthing and residential property.

Partnering with SMART Property – the region’s leading luxury property shows – a number of regional and international investment opportunities will be showing in the hall, including Knight Knox, Megaworld and Hamilton Grand, who will also be joined by Vista Del Mar and RPM La Reserve from Phuket.

Safer Phuket

On January 9-10, a conference will be held at PIMEX by the organizers of the newly launched initiative Safer Phuket.

The inaugural Coastal Waters Safety Summit will see the seven key Thai government departments and authorities come together for the first time to identify the best way that they can build a program that supports Safer Phuket and its vision of international standards and service within Phuket’s tourism and marine industries. This is a landmark event that can have significant impact on all aspects of marine safety.

PIMEX will be Russian-language friendly

This year’s international marketing plan has had a strong marketing focus on Russian visitors, recognizing the changing demographic of PIMEX’s visitor profile.

To reach out to Russian customers, the organizers have partnered with two additional Russian-language yachting publications – Motorboat & Yachting and Captain Club magazine.

Phuket and PIMEX also had a strong presence at the DOMEXPO international property exhibition Moscow. The largest show of its type in Russia, this year it featured a Thailand Pavilion sponsored by PIMEX’s local media partners the Phuket Gazette, which showcased PIMEX to this key target market.

Furthermore, a number of PIMEX exhibitors have confirmed they will have Russian-speaking staff to ensure the best possible experience for Russian visitors.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV continue as proud sponsors of this iconic Phuket event.

Display space is still available, both on water and in the air conditioned hall. For inquiries, please contact Exhibition Director Andy Dowden on 081 892-7670, or email info@phuketboatshow.com. Further details at phuketboatshow.com.
