Singapore and Thailand Yacht Shows Expand International Sales Presence Published: 24.10.2016
Singapore Yacht Events, organisers of the two main yacht shows in Asia, are pleased to announce the appointment of Anne Spyropoulos as a Client Relationship Manager to strengthen its international sales team. Based in Italy, Anne will join forces with Elena Patriarca to sell exhibition space and sponsorship opportunities to companies looking to expand their presence in the ever-growing boating and yachting markets in Asia.
With over 140 brands representing all facets of the international luxury, boating and yachting industries on display, the Singapore Yacht Show has firmly established itself as one of the key yacht shows on the annual calendar. Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of SYE commented: “We’ve always known the Singapore Yacht Show had enormous potential, but the growth we’re expecting in the next three years is going to be outstanding,” Andy commented. Singapore has become a strong point of reference for companies looking to develop their brand presence in Asia. “In addition we couldn’t be more pleased with the inaugural edition of the Thailand Yacht Show which took place earlier this year at Ao Po Grand Marina in Phuket. Phuket is fast making a name for itself as the hub of South East Asia’s cruising activity.”
Singapore, known by many as “the Switzerland of the East” is renowned for its first-class business infrastructure, high concentration of millionaire households per capita, luxury shopping and casinos. From a yachting perspective, Singapore has firmly positioned itself as the region’s business hub with excellent marina facilities, knowledgeable superyacht agents, a comprehensive set of suppliers, technical know-how and refit and repair yards too. Thanks to the myriad of lifestyle offerings, with the added benefit of a beautiful tropical, coastal setting it is hardly surprising that the industry is turning to the Singapore Yacht Show to help them develop their growth and presence in Asia.
“We are thrilled to have Anne join our team to support this growth. With an increasing number of companies in Europe and the USA exploring opportunities in Asia, we looked to expand our team to better support them. Anne’s experience, extensive knowledge of the industry and her contagious enthusiasm for everything related to yachts, are an excellent fit for our team and we are excited to have her onboard,” said Nicola Tyler, Sales and Marketing Director.
Both Anne Spyropoulos and Elena Patriarca would be happy to discuss your business goals and help you to identify the Show and type of participation that would be ideal to support your business growth in Asia.
