Thailand International Boat Show returns to Phuket in January

Thailand International Boat Show

The popular Thailand International Boat Show will once more take place in Phuket from January 12-15, following a 3 year break due to the pandemic. TTR Weekly reports that the event will be held at Royal Phuket Marina, showcasing the yachting industry in Phuket and Thailand to luxury boat owners from places like Hong Kong and Singapore.

The event is being organised by JAND Events, in partnership with the Thailand Yachting Business Association and Thailand Charter Week. JAND CEO David Hayes says it’s hoped the event will once more place Phuket back in the yachting spotlight.

“Pre-pandemic, Thailand’s yachting industry was a multi-billion-baht industry, welcoming yachts from cruisers to superyachts and their owners from around the world. The Thailand International Boat Show aims to put Phuket and Thailand back in the limelight and on the world stage after 3 years of incubation due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The event is expected to have up to 50 boats in the water, as well onshore marketing activities to promote various marine products and services. There will also be entertainment such as live music, plenty to eat and drink, and lots of family activities organised to celebrate Children’s Day on January 14.

In addition, a charity gala dinner is being held at the InterContinental Hotel, also on January 14.

The event is being supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, and the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau. Mr Hayes says he hopes it will showcase the best marine brands and services, while reconfirming Phuket as one of the top yachting destinations in the world.

“Our goal is to bring the industry together and showcase the best brands and products from the marine and lifestyle sectors to a global audience while re-cementing Phuket and Thailand’s position as one of the top boating destinations in the world.”
