Following the success of last year’s Boat Asia, which saw a 22% increase in visitors and generated more than S$57million in revenue, Boat Asia, the region’s leading leisure boat and luxury waterfront lifestyle event, will return with an even bigger and better show in 2009.
To be held for the second year running at the world class Marina at Keppel Bay from 23 April – 26 April 2009, Boat Asia 2009, targeted at boating enthusiasts in the region, will showcase the crème de la crème of luxury motor boats, sail boats, keel boats, catamarans, and super yachts from leading brands such as Princess, Azimut, Ferretti, Horizon and Sunseeker.
In line with the luxury lifestyle theme, guests will also be treated to an on-water fashion show, yoga and belly-dance performances as well band performances. For the first time, the on-water display area will also feature a floating bar where visitors can refresh themselves while walking around the exhibits. Specially invited high-net worth individuals will also enjoy exclusive access to the Admiral Suite, a VIP lounge with a panoramic view of the marina.
Adding another element of glamour to Boat Asia 2009 will be the highly-anticipated Charity Gala Dinner, which raised SGD$70,000 for the Mainly I Love Kids (MILK) Fund this year.
Herman Ho, Managing Director of TMX Show Productions, the producers of Boat Asia said, “The less than rosy economic outlook in fact poses a lucrative opportunity for prospective buyers and boating enthusiasts to pick up good deals, so we are confident that Boat Asia 2009 is going to be yet another success. This year’s show will be 30% bigger in terms of exhibition space, and we expect to showcase some breath-taking models. If the response we have been receiving from exhibitors is anything to go by, this year’s show is definitely going to be an unforgettable one.”
