“Thailand is back!” and set to drive boating in the region with the Thailand International Boat Show 2024
Over 80% of the in-water space is already booked. A new purpose built air-conditioned marquee will
be the home for onshore exhibitors and better connect with the in-water displays and social scene.
Thailand, 31 August 2023 – From 11 – 14 January 2024 the focus of the marine leisure world in the
Asia-Pacific region will be on the second annual Thailand International Boat Show A Luxury
Lifestyle Event. With more than 80% of the in-water space already booked and a new onshore
layout, the event will showcase Thailand and the best of boating and luxury lifestyle across Asia to the world.
Held at Royal Phuket Marina and organised by JAND Events, the Thailand International Boat Show A
Luxury Lifestyle Event wraps up an almost two-month festival of marine events that showcase
Thailand’s world-class charter (Thailand Charter Week, 17 – 19 November 2023), racing (Phuket
King’s Cup Regatta, 2 – 9 December 2023) superyachts (Kata Rocks Superyacht Rendezvous,
December 2023) and boating and luxury lifestyle (Thailand International Boat Show, 11 – 14 January
2024) credentials to the world.
“Southeast Asia, with Thailand as its hub, has long been considered one of the top yachting
destinations in the world. The cruising grounds are spectacular and will take the breath away of any
first time visitor, while the marine infrastructure and onshore leisure facilities are comparable with the
best in the world,” commented David Hayes, CEO of organisers JAND Events. “The industry has
come together with a resounding “yes” in support of the Thailand International Boat Show A Luxury
Lifestyle Event and we’re excited to announce that there will be more than 50 boats in-the-water for
the 2024 edition, with many marine and luxury lifestyle businesses already confirmed onshore. It is my belief that in time the Thailand International Boat Show A Luxury Lifestyle Event will be a key event on the global calendar promoting boating in Thailand and across Asia.”
