Singapore Yacht Show 2013 Extended Due To Popular Demand

Following initial requests from several important local exhibitors, it was unanimously agreed by participants and stakeholders that the event should now be allowed to open on Thursday, April 18 and run until Sunday, April 21, 2013, at ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove.

Andy Treadwell, managing director of the Singapore Yacht Show, says his team acknowledges the high cost and logistical effort of bringing a vessel and an exhibition team to a Yacht Show, and the date extension will allow both exhibitors and visitors to maximise the unique networking opportunity the show presents.

“Extending by a day to the more normal four days allows the exhibitors to enjoy maximum exposure to this very important emerging yachting and boating market, and for new buyers to gain full insight into the luxury marine leisure lifestyle,” he says.

Russell Morris, managing director of American superyacht builder Palmer Johnson, echoes this enthusiasm, explaining that the company sees Asia as an important, long-term market:

“The Singapore Yacht Show is an ideal platform for us to interact with Asia’s new wealth. We are looking forward to seeing the event continue to grow and prosper.”

Now heading into its third year, the Show is already attracting more superyacht, luxury boat and car brands than ever before.
