Singapore show will expand into China

The success of this year’s Singapore Yacht Show, which opened Thursday and ended Sunday, has led to the signing of an agreement between Singapore Yacht Events and Nansha Marina to extend the show into China.

Singapore Yacht Events managing director Andy Treadwell said in a statement that he was looking at potential collaborations with all of the shows in the region.

"I see huge potential in what my team can do in Asia," Treadwell said.

Singapore Yacht Events will help promote Yacht CN 2013 — Nansha Bay International Boat Show, which will be held in October.

Nansha Marina commodore Erik Fok said China presents opportunities for the yachting industry and he looks forward to working collaboratively with Singapore Yacht Events.

Nansha Marina in Guangzhou, about an hour’s drive from Hong Kong and Macau, is becoming a hub for marine leisure and boating in southern China. The Nansha Bay International Boat Show was launched in October of last year and attracted more than 50 exhibitors and 60 vessels.

Meanwhile, the Singapore Yacht Show, now in its third year, has more than doubled its number of exhibitors and visitors, showcasing boats, yachts and superyachts, as well as luxury cars, fine art and international fashion.

Exhibitors are reporting promising discussions that they expect to convert to sales by the end of the week.

“In terms of the significance of the yacht show, and the quality of its exhibitors this year, there is little doubt that the Singapore Yacht Show is playing a very significant part in positioning Singapore as the Southeast Asia business hub for the international yachting and boating industry,” Treadwell said.
