SSA announces extensive updates to 1st Asia Superyacht Conference

The Superyacht Singapore Association today announced a number of important updates for its upcoming 1st Asia Superyacht Conference. The conference has received the full backing of the Singapore Government and Mr S Iswaran, Minister of State for Trade & Industry and Education will be the conference guest of honour and will make a keynote address on the first day of the conference.

The conference continues to grow in every aspect and a number of new speakers have been added to the programme including:

David McQueen, President of Superyacht Base Australia
Murray Hird, Manager, Superyacht Base Darwin
Scott Walker, Asia Pacific Superyachts

The addition of two more speakers from Australia shows the great interest in the conference from that region. Superyacht Base Australia are also an Official Supporting Association for the conference and will be bringing a large delegation.

The conference will include a dedicated stream session on Australia and New Zealand which will run in parallel to a stream on Indonesia. The two sessions will then merge for a large panel discussion on the creation of an integrated cruising route between South East Asia and Indonesia through to Australia and New Zealand.

I am still getting approached by organisations from around the world wishing to speak at the conference,” commented Simon Turner, SSA Member and Conference Director. “Its very encouraging and I am doing everything possible to include as many new speakers as possible.”

The conference has over 25 speakers and panellists from over 15 countries around the world including USA, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Australia and Asian countries.

"The response to the conference shows the critical need for a roadmap for the industry in Asia,” added Jean-Jacques Lavigne, Executive Director of The SSA, “we have over 100 participants from over 30 countries around the world and the number is growing every day. It shows that not only is the world taking note of opportunities in Asia and wanting to understand specific ways of being part of the superyacht market here, but also how regional players are creating new ventures and collaborations that ultimately lead to the growth of the industry.”

The conference, sponsored by MTU and which runs from October 13th to 14th with an optional marina visits tour on the 15th, is just S$799 to attend and will be held at ONE◦15 Marina Club at Sentosa Cove, Singapore.
