Vivaldi Integrated Public Relations recently hosted a press conference for the second edition of the Thailand Yacht Show, which will be held in Phuket in December. Vivaldi handled all communications components for the official launch, with the press conference in particular attracting a lot of media attention.

Held in partnership with the Thai government, TYS gives visitors the chance to try out a wide range of world-class yachts, boats and on-water toys, with a lively social programme. Following on from the success of the inaugural Show in February 2016, many of the industry’s leading names will return to show their support for Thailand’s new national boat show.

At the Press Conference in Bangkok, Mr. Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of the Thailand Yacht Show, Mrs. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Minister of Tourism & Sports, and Mr Noppadon Pakprot, Deputy Governor of the TAT, along with many other important officials and key business leaders gathered to announce exciting developments for December’s Show and to re-confirm their commitment to make Thailand the marine hub of Asia.

The potential economic impact for Thailand as a result of improved marine infrastructure is vast. It is proven that yachting tourists spend far more than any other tourism sector. On average, superyacht owners will spend between US$1 million and US$2 million (THB35.45 million-THB70.9 million) in the country in which the yacht is based for a season.
