We have a few months to go before the inaugural PHUKET RENDEZVOUS in 2018 and we can’t deny that the excitement is building up. For those still contemplating if they should book their flight to the South-east Asian holiday destination, we have 10 reasons why you should join us at the Royal Phuket Marina from January 4 to 7.

1 – Strong focus on water display 

Leveraging on 14 years experience with PIMEX, the Royal Phuket Marina offers an optimal on-water display with a possible superyachts berthing extension nearby. There will be a minimum of 40 yachts on display at the January event with Thailand’s leading yacht dealers in attendance and already a minimum of three Asian yacht premieres. The well-respected and experienced Andy Dowden will be managing the yacht display and space allocation.

2 – Optimal Location and Access in Phuket 

Ideally located, the Royal Phuket Marina venue will be easily accessible by car (550 indoor and outdoor parking spaces) and by regular shuttles from all 10 key, high-end hotels and resorts.

3 – Ideal Timing: All Yacht Owners and Yacht Buyers In Phuket

Organised between January 4-7, the PHUKET RENDEZVOUS 2018 will capture local residents and visitors – including villa and yacht owners – before they head back home. The yacht buyers will be on the island on these specific dates. This is the time when the largest number of business jet moves are registered at Phuket airport.

Luxury lifestyle brands and partners – from watches and jewellery, to rare whiskeys, and from supercars and classic cars, to high-end properties – will have the opportunity to showcase their products and enhance the atmosphere of the show.

The four-day event will appeal to all family members with kids zones, and educational and fun activities. We have a full team on-site, including the well-known and Phuket resident, Nico Monges as well as Khun Joy Suphatra, ensuring a vibrant selection of entertainment and event partners.

The PHUKET RENDEZVOUS 2018 will appeal to all senses, from well-curated photography workshops to food and beverage classes, and other interactive activities. 

7 – Strong Show Visibility 

Extensive media buzz and visibility will attract a minimum of 10,000 visitors over the four days. With an already booming database of 36,000 potential visitors, outdoor billboards booked across the island, plus over 70,000 cumulated followers on Instagram / Facebook and growing every day, the visitor’s promotion will be at the very centre of our efforts. In parallel, all exhibitors will benefit from interviews and features in YACHT STYLE, PALACE, WOW, MENS FOLIO, LOFFICIEL, L’OPTIMUM. The list of media partners continues to grow and will be managed by a dedicated PR agency.
