Inaugural Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit 2024

SuperYacht Times is pleased to announce that the first Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit will be taking place on 5 and 6 June 2024 at the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel Hong Kong. The Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit will focus on the development of Asia as a superyacht cruising destination and how to get more Asian clients interested in the construction, purchase, and charter of yachts.

“In the past few years, there has been a declining interest from the superyacht industry in the Asian market,” commented Merijn de Waard, Founder & Director of SuperYacht Times. “With the market slowing down globally, the superyacht industry needs to look further again and there is still a tremendous opportunity in Asia with more than 950 billionaires, according to Forbes.” SuperYacht Times is already successfully organising a similar event in the Middle East, the Gulf Superyacht Summit, and the two events will complement each other by helping increase the presence of yachts heading eastwards.

Simpson Superyachts, an affiliate division of the Simpson Marine Group, has been announced as the patron for the first edition of the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit.  "We are delighted to hear that SuperYacht Times is going to host its first Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit in Hong Kong, the birthplace of Simpson Marine Group,” said Ewa Stachurska, Marketing Director at SuperYacht Times is going to host its first Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit in Hong Kong, the birthplace of Simpson Marine Group. “With our 40-year anniversary celebrations taking place this year, what better occasion to reaffirm Asia’s yachting centre, Hong Kong, on the global superyacht map and welcome industry experts for a series of discussions on the future developments and opportunities for superyachts in Asia-Pacific, the fastest growing market by region today.” Also announced as sponsors for this year's event are Event Partners Damen Yachting, Gold Sponsors YachtEye and Supporting Partners Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association (APSA).

Nigel Beatty, Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Association, and head of YACHTZOO in Asia commented, "APSA is very pleased to hear that SuperYacht Times is planning to organise the Asia-Pacific Superyacht Summit that will help promote the region as a destination for superyachts and help to grow the market further. We at APSA will support the event and look forward to working closely with the SYT team to maximise the success of this event."
