Success for the first
12 February 2017
Following the success of Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous in December, the brand-new Phuket RendezVous 2018 has closed on a high note! High calibre visitors attending the event numbered over 6,000 from 70 countries and the show has welcomed over 100 local and international exhibitors, sponsors and partners.
According to the event CEO, Gaël Burlot, sales at the show exceeded USD 23 million with more transactions expected post-event: “We have witnessed a high number of quality visitors and good sales volume at the show. Both indicate strong growth in the regional marine industry and the Phuket RendezVous clearly reinforces the island’s position as one of the most prominent yachting hubs in Asia,” stated Gaël. “We would like to thank all our supporters and partners in this enterprise and hope their trust in the new venture was fully justified.”
Among a long list of lavish events during the show, the inaugural Christofle Yacht Style Awards 2018, held in celebration of Yacht Style’s 10th anniversary, were staged at the neighboring Phuket Boat Lagoon and added another dimension to the event’s vibrancy. The Awards covering 25 categories recognised the very best of the latest yachts launched, yacht charters, yacht brokers and marinas; certainly an exciting step forward for the burgeoning boating industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Phuket RendezVous will be back from 4 – 7 January 2019 and other forthcoming RendezVous Series Events include:
Penang RendezVous 2018 | 10 – 13 May 2018 | Penang | Malaysia
