Asia’s premier leisure boat and luxury waterfront lifestyle event, Boat Asia, is set to create some waves as it returns to Singapore from 24 - 27 April 2008. This year marks the first time the event will be held at the newly opened Marina at Keppel Bay, the only residential precinct in Singapore to have a world-class marina.
Produced by TMX Show Productions, Boat Asia 2008 is set to be 'the' event in Singapore’s social calendar this April, targeted at potential buyers of luxury boats as well as thousands of boating enthusiasts from across the region.
For the first time this year, specially invited High Net-Worth Individuals (HNWIs) will be treated to door-to-door limousine service with personalized tours around the event. They will also enjoy exclusive access to The Island Suite of Marina at Keppel Bay, where they will enjoy all-day first-class service and fine cuisine prepared by celebrity chefs. Another first for Boat Asia will also be a fashion-show on the 'high-seas'.
Boat Asia 2008 will feature over 40 exhibitors from Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Italy, Japan, Denmark and France showcasing on-water displays of luxury motor yachts, sail boats, keel boats, catamarans, mega yachts and super yachts from world-class boating brands such as Ferretti, Grand Banks, Kingfisher, Princess and Sea Ray amongst others. For those who have no sea-legs, speed boats, jet skis, sailing yachts, marine equipment and accessories, luxury resorts and properties as well as high-end consumer lifestyle products will also be exhibited on land.
In addition, distinguished guests and VIPs will be invited to partake in an Exclusive Night Gala Dinner at the swanky new St Regis hotel, replete with champagne, live music and fine cuisine - a definite 'must-go' for the crème de la crème indeed!
