Singapore show expands

The Singapore Yacht Show will open on Thursday, April 18 — one day earlier than previously planned — and run until Sunday, April 21, at ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove.
Andy Treadwell, managing director of the Singapore Yacht Show, said in a statement that his team acknowledges the 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 maximize the networking opportunity the show presents.
“The Singapore Yacht Show is an ideal platform for us to interact with Asia’s new wealth,” said Russell Morris, managing director of Palmer Johnson. “We are looking forward to seeing the event continue to grow and prosper.”
The show is preparing for its third event, which will include a fine art exhibition, a supercar show, and a VIP gala evening.
The 5th Asia Pacific Superyacht Conference occurs on the two days preceding the show, and organizers recently announced the inaugural Singapore Private Jet Forum, which will run alongside the superyacht industry conference. These two events will be followed by a one-day Luxury Summit.
“For six days, there will be a concentration of key people meeting and discussing the luxury leisure lifestyle industries emerging in Asia,” the show’s Treadwell said. “As far as we know, this will be the first time such a series of complementary events will be held in Southeast Asia.”
Major international shipyards including Feadship have attended the show.
“This year we made a bigger commitment to the market by completing an Asian roadshow with M/Y Helix, including attending the Singapore Yacht Show,” said Jan-Bart Verkuyl, sales director of Feadship. “The strategy worked very well for us, with the sale of two 45m Feadships to Asian clients as a result.”
