The Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX)’, 21-24 March, has been Asia's leading consumer Boat Show for nine years. The largest in-water Boat Show with a solid track record of sales and quality visitor attendance, 2013 is the 10th Anniversary of 'Asia's Favourite Boat Show'.

PIMEX is an established and successful event in the global marine and leisure calendar, and organisers have big plans for 2013 with an increase in the on-water display area and a diverse exhibitor line-up in the hall, with displays from as far afield as China, Korea, Australia, Italy and France.

Exhibitors committed to this year’s 10th Anniversary event include Asia Marine, Helicam, Azimut, Jeanneau, Shin Woo, Bavaria Yachts, Kohler, Sunsail, Beneteau, Lagoon, Suzuki, Elite Yacht Charter, Majesty, Targa, Fairline, Ferretti, Marinetek, Pershing, Gulf Craft, Hanse, Raymarine, San Lorenzo, Princess, Gemini Water Sports, Yanmar and many more.

According to organisers, 'reaching the 10 year milestone is something to celebrate, and a time to look back and appreciate the success over the years'.



Exhibitors who praise PIMEX, include Robert Braithwaite, Founder and President, Sunseeker, who says: '[Asia is] 'an important market. And we see it as a growing market for us… Thailand has been very good for us.'

Bryan Jones, President, Fairline Boats Asia, said of last year’s event: 'We had a tremendous first two days… a number of visitors and exhibitors I’ve spoken to have been impressed by the quality of the visitors.'

Alberto Perrone Da Zara, Direttore Commerciale, Ferretti Group is anticipating a strong show in 2013, saying 'From what I have seen and from what I’ve heard from the past … this is a show that has a very high incidence of success.'
