Kaohsiung to welcome the world for 1st Taiwan International Boat Show

Organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade, MOEA and Kaohsiung City Government, implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and supported by Taiwan Yacht Industry Association (TYIA), the first 'Taiwan International Boat Show' will be held from Thursday, May 8 until Sunday, May 11, 2014, at the newly inaugurated Kaohsiung Exhibition Center.

The history of Taiwan's yacht manufacturing industry can be traced back to the 1960s. Over the past five decades, the industry at first flourished, then internationalized during the 80s, before experiencing a rapid decline in the 90s.

Now, following industrial transformation and the development of proprietary brands in Taiwan, the exquisite craftsmanship, high level of customization and superiority of Taiwan's yacht industry has once again gained recognition from global buyers. According to ShowBoats International's 2014 Global Order Book, Taiwan stands firmly as the sixth largest yacht manufacturing country in the world of yachts 80-foot or above, with 5,656 feet in total. As the capital of Taiwan's yacht industry, Kaohsiung was chosen as the city to organize the '2014 Taiwan International Boat Show.'

The '2014 Taiwan International Boat Show' is the only professional exhibition of yachts, yacht-related equipment and the marine industry in Taiwan; it is also the only indoor boat exhibition in Asia that showcases a variety of yachts, sailboats, motor boats, equipment, accessories, water sports and recreation, tourism, and maritime services. An estimated 168 firms will take up 861 booths in the North and South halls of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center and present the exquisite yacht craftsmanship much sought by international buyers.

Enthusiastic Support from Domestic/Foreign Yacht and Related Equipment Manufacturers Demonstrates Comprehensive Industry Supply Chain

As the first 'Taiwan International Boat Show', TYIA appeals to all its members to participate the event. The most spectacular yachts and vessels of this exhibition will be displayed in the columnless, 27 meter lofted south hall of the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. The world's eleventh largest yacht manufacturer, Horizon Yachts, and Kha Shing, Hsing Hang Yachts, Tayana, Corum Yachts, President Yachts, Morningstar Boats, Global Yacht Builders, Johnson Yachts, Grand Harbor Yachts, Shing Sheng Fa Boat Building, Delta, Aisa Harbour Yacht, Novatech, Southcoast, and Tachou, will be displaying their superior techniques and technological achievements in the exhibition hall.

Besides the display of yachts, another popular exhibition area is the equipment and components area. In support of the development of Taiwan's yacht industry, yacht peripheral industries and supply chains, including raw materials, marine hardware and accessories, wood processing and furniture manufacturing, have been established over the past decade.

Consequently, at the first Taiwan International Boat Show, 'Aritex', the largest yacht hardware accessory manufacturer in Asia, will feature a large booth to showcase its marine hardware. Other manufacturers that have signed up for the exhibition include Caterpillar's only dealer in Taiwan, Capital Machinery, Man Ship Machinery and Hardware, UMC-United Metals, God Power, Raymarine's official distributor, Marine Centre Asia, 3M, Hung Shen Propeller, among others, all of which will demonstrate a complete supply chain for Taiwan's yacht industry.

The 'Taiwan International Boat Show' will not only attract the participation of domestic and international yacht/marine industries, but will also catch the attention of overseas manufacturers. With the US and Europe still not exhibiting noticeable improvement in their economies, the development of yacht industries worldwide is being hindered, the Asian yacht market has become the new emerging market.

Through Taiwan's geographical advantage, foreign manufacturers are able to enter the Asian market, in turn attracting manufacturers from America, Australia, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden and the UK to the exhibition.

Exciting Events Provide All-facet Maritime Experience

Not only will exhibitors' excellence draw attention, but the variety of events being held during the show will provide lots of fun. Procurement meetings will be held to boost the effectiveness of the show, while industrial forums and seminars will be a perfect platform for further cooperation and idea exchanges. In addition, regatta, yacht design workshops, yacht design competition, maritime knowledge box will also provide visitors exclusive maritime experience.

First International Boat Show Taiwan – An Important Marine Grand Event

Integrating traditional manufacturing, high technology and exquisite craftsmanship, Taiwan's comprehensive yacht industry will be exhibited at the '2014 Taiwan International Boat Show.'

The exhibition will be held between May 8-11, 2014, and it is expected to become the most anticipated event in Taiwan. For more exhibition information, please log onto www.boatshow.tw or join the exhibition's Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/taiwanboatshow
