Hong Kong Yacht Show Planned for November 2020

The organisers of the Singapore and Thailand Yacht Shows have announced plans to hold the first Hong Kong Yacht Show later this year.

Jointly hosted by the Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (HKCYIA) and Verventia, the first edition of the annual show will take place from November 19-22 at the Kwun Tong Typhoon Shelter. It will be held as part of the Hong Kong International Cruise and Yachting Festival.

The show will promote the growing Asian yachting industry, focusing specifically on the South China Sea and coasts around Hong Kong and Macao.

HKCYIA chief executive, Kara Yeung, said: “Hong Kong has by far one of the biggest potential markets in Asia.”

Yeung said organisers had begun planning the show last year and described the Verventia team as “experienced yacht show organisers”.

Yeung added: “We look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration which will boost the local and global yachting industries, as well as bringing new business, jobs and prosperity to local service, supply and hospitality industries.”

The expertise of Verventia will help “bring in international players” and “promote the show to potential buyers”, according to chief executive officer Andy Treadwell.

Treadwell said that the union between the two companies was “a perfect partnership that we hope to develop steadily over the next few years.”
