Those of you who live here will already know that the Phuket International Boat Show starts today at Royal Phuket Marina for the next few days and will showcase millions of dollars’ worth of boats and luxury goods, making it one of the premier marine events in Asia. As the longest-running boat show in SE-Asia, you need to get along to see what all the fuss is about.
The show is great for the island in so many ways, whether that is in terms of promoting Phuket, the hosting of an international event and also the money it generates. It’s a win-win loophole whichever way you look at it.
Andy Dowden, the Managing Director of Andaman Marine Consultants, who are the organizers of the event said, “The Phuket International Boat Show is a platform for business and marketing. Every year at the show, exhibitors have announced big sales over the past 12 years, resulting from leads made at the show, running into hundreds of millions of dollars for sure,”
“Understandably the goal of most exhibitors is to sell products and make new business leads, however, my goal as organizer is much more and I’m proud that the show has become an unrivalled tool to promote Phuket and Thailand, and its marine tourism industry.”
Over the past 13 years, the event has spread far and wide, benefitting Phuket immeasurably and cementing our reputation as a world-class destination for the luxury lifestyle market.
