Thailand International Boat Show postponed to 2023
Industry, exhibitors and sponsors align on preferred dates: 12 – 15 January, 2023
Phuket, Thailand, 2 December 2021 – Following consultation with industry stakeholders, exhibitors and sponsors, organisers of the Thailand International Boat Show announce that the planned 2022 event will be postponed to 2023. The new dates for the show are 12 – 15 January, 2023 and the venue remains Royal Phuket Marina.
“Having discussed with our partners, exhibitors and industry stakeholders, we have taken the decision in the best interests of all to postpone the show until January 2023,” shared David Hayes, CEO of JAND Events.
“It’s clear from the positive feedback we have had to date that there is appetite for our show concept. However, due to a combination of factors we feel hosting it in 2023 will ensure a better return of investment for our sponsors, partners and exhibitors, and will ensure a more visitor-friendly show.”
“JAND Events is known for delivering high quality events and that is our goal for Thailand International Boat Show – to create an event the likes of which Phuket has never seen before. While Phuket is open to the world and Thailand is leading the way in reopening its borders to international travellers, people remain cautious about travel and large gatherings, especially with the concern of a new coronavirus variant appearing.”
With another new boat show announced to take place in March 2022 at Ocean Marina in Pattaya, organisers of the Thailand International Boat Show have set new dates in January 2023 to avoid any clash and to support the industry across Thailand and throughout the region.
“The support we have received has been extremely positive and our plans for 2022 will be carried over to 2023. We are also in discussions with a number of global brands who are aligned with our vision for a boat show in Phuket, and who are interested in sponsoring the Thailand International Boat Show in 2023 and beyond. Working with these brands will support our efforts to put Phuket and Thailand’s marine tourism front of mind amongst global travellers,” added Hayes.
