All over the world, but especially in Asia, being out on the water is suddenly a very attractive lifestyle option, as people consider new ways to travel and vacation – safely, and alone with just close friends and family.
That’s why the new Hong Kong Yacht Show will create a much-needed sales platform for the Asian boating industry, connecting new buyers with best sellers, and has received support from some of the world’s leading boating brands.
The inaugural show, is set to take place from 19-22 November.
“The Show will obviously be on a slightly smaller and more local scale than we had initially hoped for, but there is a very mature market in Hong Kong – the best in Asia, and it’s going gangbusters right now – so we’re very much looking forward to launching this brand new annual event, even in these most torrid of times,” said Andy Treadwell CEO of show organsiers Verventia.
Verventia other major boat show Having unfortunately been forced to make the difficult decision to postpone this year’s the Singapore Yacht Show, has been postponed for a second time, and is now set to be staged in April 2021.
Kara Yeung, Chief Executive of The Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association, founding partner of HKYS, says the Hong Kong Yacht Show should be able to go ahead as planned:
“Despite the continuing restrictions on business and social activity here, we are currently still assured that the Hong Kong Yacht Show will be able to open as planned in November.
We are nearly sold out in terms of the yacht berths, with some 35 beautiful vessels now confirmed and many more on the waiting list, although we still have room for more exhibitors and sponsors to participate. Please contact our sales team if you would like to join in – we are all very much looking forward to the show.”
