The 2nd Asia Superyacht Conference continues to go from strength to strength as delegates book to attend from around the world. The fast developing programme, now with even more speakers, will deliver critical intelligence about the Superyacht building, refit and cruising opportunities within Asia.
Latest addition to the speaker line up is Johnny Chueh, owner principal of Ocean Alexander. This fast developing yard is building yachts from 50ft to 250ft in facilities in Taiwan and China and Johnny will give us a unique insight into the opportunities for Superyacht construction in the region. Also from China will be William Jelbert of McConaghy Boats who will give a range of examples of successful construction projects in China.
Moving on to the customer focus, Gordon Hui of Sunseeker Asia will give an eye opening presentation on the needs of Asian customers. Having imported more yachts to Asia than just about anyone else he has a wealth of knowledge and experience. The customer focus will be supported by Jean-Jacques Lavigne, executive director of the Superyacht Singapore Association, who will provide some statistics on Superyacht ownership in Asia and discuss the impact of visiting cruising yachts.
Among the emerging Asian region the Asia Superyacht Conference has Aashim Mongia of West Coast Marine Services in India. Aashim is a World Championship winning yachtsman and is pioneering Superyacht services and support across the whole of coastal India and Sri Lanka.
Connecting the whole region, we are delighted to welcome another new speaker in the form of David McQueen, Chairman of Superyacht Base Australia. David will share details of some of the developments in Australia and opportunities in the Superyacht business. Following on in that part of the world, Greg Parker of Waitakere Properties will present on a unique Superyacht precinct currently under development in New Zealand.
These are just a few of the unique presentations at ASC which will be supported by extensive panel discussions and interaction, as well as a healthy social programme and tour of marinas in Singapore.
The conference will be hosted by One°15 Marina Club the official venue for the conference.
