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.'
