Last week saw the 9th edition of Singapore Yacht Show return to Sentosa Cove. Labelled as a must attend event in Asia; the Singapore Yacht Show arrived at an exciting time this year after the restructure of Peters & May Asia. Having added to the team to support the potential growth and demand within the region, Peters & May’s offices in Singapore and Hong Kong now play a large role in yacht transportation throughout Asia.
At the Singapore Yacht Show last week the team in Asia were joined by representatives from offices in Dubai, France and Germany. Newly appointed, Kristina Webster, Leisure Brand Manager was also at the show, focused on meeting with clients. Singapore Yacht Show being renowned for its networking opportunities, the team in Asia attended numerous events including a Gala Dinner before the show kicked off.
Charles Hazet, Business Development Manager for South East Asia commented on the event; “The Gala Dinner was a great warm up to Singapore Yacht Show. We were able to network with clients in a relaxed environment before the real business began. The show was very productive this year, seeing new and a few regular faces”.
Attracting some of the world’s best yachting brands; Singapore Yacht Show had an impressive array of yachts on display. The 15,700+ visitors to the show enjoyed over 100 yachts, 23 superyachts and 14 regionally debuting yachts being exhibited. Working closely with some of the clients exhibiting; Peters & May’s network of offices were responsible for the shipping of almost 20 yachts attending the show.
Paul Everley, Regional Manager for Peters & May Asia gave his comments on business within Asia; “We have seen massive growth in this region recently with some exciting shipments coming up. It’s a testament to the growth and skill of our resources across Asia. Seeing all this come together for Singapore Yacht Show made this year at the show a great success”.
Now that Singapore Yacht Show has come to a close for another year, Peters & May Asia, continue to grow their presence throughout the region. Further reinforcing Peters & May’s commitment to the region, our Hong Kong office recently became a member of the Hong Kong Boat Industry Association (HBIA). As a trade association that represents all sectors of the marine leisure industry, our team look forward to influencing marine decisions and assisting in the resolution of issues challenging the industry.
