Building on the success of the Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX), the inaugural PHUKET RENDEZVOUS will take place at the award-winning Royal Phuket Marina from 4 – 7 January 2018 and will welcome an unprecedented number of exhibitors and visitors to the island.
As well as showcasing over 50 premium yachts in the marina and internationally renowned brands in the exhibition hall, the PHUKET RENDEZVOUS will also feature the world’s most exotic car companies, luxury properties, watchmakers and gourmet cuisine as well as specialists within the art and hospitality sectors. During the event will be the prestigious Christofle Yacht Style Awards, an annual event recognising the best of the maritime industry in Asia.
For four days, Royal Phuket Marina will be transformed into a bustling hub for all things luxury, highlighting Phuket as one of Asia’s premier cruising destinations and guaranteeing maritime heaven for leisure boating enthusiasts. The show will feature luxury yacht models from some of the region’s leading brokers, including Go Boating (Thailand), Lee Marine, Northrop & Johnson and South East Asia Sales & Services, whilst Simpson Marine will offer visitors the opportunity to see the latest models from Beneteau, Lagoon and Monte Carlo Yachts.
The PHUKET RENDEZVOUS will attract over 100 luxury brands and an expected 10,000 visitors from 50 countries across Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Americas. As General Manager, Nicolas Monges explains: “Our Mission is to offer the most effective platform for every brand displayed, to capture and interact with the largest and most relevant targeted audience.” This approach is certainly paying off and, with just three months to go, the exhibitor list already boasts top brands such as Amer Yachts, Andara Resort & Villas, Coldwell Banker, The Slate Hotel, Yacht Services Thailand whilst Jim Thompson will sponsor, design and furnish a luxurious VIP Lounge.
Superyachts will be moored at the nearby Koh Rang Noi and parties interested in buying or chartering will be transported by private tender to discuss their requirements with superyacht representatives. Other highlights will include classic car parades, art exhibitions, fashion shows, bartender competitions, live bands and parties galore; something for everyone to enjoy!
Held during the island’s peak season, the PHUKET RENDEZVOUS is perfectly placed to ensure that exhibitors and visitors alike will enjoy the best selection of marine and luxury lifestyle brands, in a unique and atmospheric venue with a myriad of side events and activities that guarantee an unforgettable experience.
