Ocean Marina Yacht Club are to host the second Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show, showcasing the Gulf of Thailand's marine leisure industry and underscoring its position as a strategic yachting hub in South East Asia. To be held 22nd to 24th November at Ocean Marina Yacht Club on Jomtien Beach, Pattaya, on Thailand's Eastern Seaboard, the event is expected to attract over 100 exhibitors and 3,000 visitors.

Following the successful inaugural event in 2012, organisers are planning for it to be even bigger and better this year. Already 60% of the in-water display area is booked and reservations for the 2,600sqm of onshore display space are strong, with marine businesses, luxury automobile brands and upmarket real estate in the offerings.

'Last year was the first Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show and we received a lot of positive feedback. We are building on that success and for this year have expanded the onshore space and re-developed the layout. Bookings have been strong and we are looking forward to an exciting show for both exhibitors and visitors,' said Mrs. Supatra Angkawinijwong, deputy managing director, Ocean Property.

The Gulf of Thailand's close proximity to the South China Sea opens up the area to yachts from Hong Kong and further north, and south to the Indonesian archipelago, Australia and New Zealand. The Gulf of Thailand provides idyllic tropical cruising with islands dotted off the shore and the untouched waters of Cambodia and Vietnam on the region's doorstep.

'The Gulf of Thailand is a popular cruising area. This is due in part to the stunning nearby cruising grounds and its strategic location in the region, as well as the presence of world-class marina facilities at Ocean Marina Yacht Club. The Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show will help cement the region's strategic importance and showcase what the Gulf of Thailand has to offer, to a worldwide audience,' added Mrs. Angkawinijwong.

A large turnout of Thais, expats and tourists from neighbouring regions, lifestyle-lovers, entrepreneurs, investors, boat owners and property owners, as well as targetted VIPs and media are expected at the 2013 Show to enjoy a diverse display of products and businesses, including international yacht brands, marine accessories and services, yacht charter, water sports, automobile brands, luxury real estate, lifestyle brands and much more.

There are also lots of onshore and on-water activities and entertainment planned, including free sailing trials, free kayak trials, lucky draws, luxury cocktail parties, Dragon Boat Race and a marina-side beer garden and festival with live band.

Having hosted many international events such as the 24th SEA Games, Top of the Gulf Regatta and large-scale concerts by Grammy, Cool FM and more, Ocean Marina Yacht Club continues to lead the way in showcasing the region and positioning the Gulf of Thailand as a strategic South East Asia yachting hub.

Bookings are now being taken for space at the 2013 Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show. For more details contact Ms. Patcharaporn Sirisapwong (Bangkok), email: patcharaporn@oceanproperty.co.th, or Scott Finsten (Pattaya), email: scott.finsten@oceanmarinayachtclub.com.
