Thailand boat shows form strategic alliance to deliver single show in Phuket in 2025

Thailand International Boat Show

Thailand International Boat Show and Thailand Boat Festival will merge for a single event in Phuket, aiming to create the biggest show yet in January 2025.

Organisers of the Thailand International Boat Show A Luxury Lifestyle Event and Thailand Boat Festival announced they have formed a strategic alliance to host a single boat show in Phuket at Phuket Yacht Haven from 9 – 12 January, 2025. The event name will remain “Thailand International Boat Show” as the two organisers aim to leverage their complementary experience and scale up the 2025 show to be the biggest yet.

David Hayes, CEO of Thailand International Boat Show organisers JAND Events, said, “We know the industry only wants one show, and this strategic alliance with M Vision will deliver just that – together we aim to deliver the best possible boat and lifestyle show in 2025. M Vision’s experience organising large-scale Thai consumer events complements our boat show and luxury events experience, and while we look to further grow international visitors we will also build on our Thai visitor success this year and supercharge our efforts for 2025.”

Businesses and partners of the Thailand Boat Festival will join the stellar line-up of boat and luxury brands from around the world that are already confirmed to be participating in the 2025 Thailand International Boat Show.

Speaking of the alliance, Opas Cherdpunt, CEO of M Vision Public Company Limited, commented, “Aligning our efforts with the Thailand International Boat Show makes a lot of sense for the industry and hosting it at Phuket Yacht Haven is the ideal location. This gives us more space in-the-water and opportunities to add more lifestyle displays and activities on land. And with direct access to Phang Nga Bay, boat exhibitors have the possibility to take potential buyers on sea trials during the show.”

The event will also include the second annual Thailand Yachting Conference on the 8th January, 2025 and the yachting awards and gala dinner that evening.
