Moving in to its seventh year, Yacht & Boat Korea is aiming to grow the event with more local and international exhibitors and more to appeal to visitors, setting the dates for next year’s event: 2 to 5 May 2013.

Under the auspices of new owner, Mr Jin Hoe Kim, President of GNA International, whose background is the shipping industry, Yacht & Boat Korea is well positioned to build on the success of previous editions.

Gyeongnam Province has confirmed the dates of the seventh annual Yacht & Boat Korea and is proud to extend substantial support to the event as a pivotal factor in developing the local marine industry and facilitating recreational boating.

Yacht & Boat Korea is situated in Gyeongnam Province which is in the scenic South close to the Busan – South Korea’s largest metropolitan centre after the capital, Seoul, and the country’s largest port city.

The main venue is the magnificent Changwon Exhibition and Convention Center, with its state of the art facilities and 7,827m² of exhibition space.

The show offers a balance of consumer and trade and is strongly supported by the South Korean recreational and light commercial marine industry. There is a B2B component, involving networking opportunities, seminars and forums featuring internationally respected industry proponents.

On show, an array of power and sail boats, the latest in locally produced and imported electronics, marina companies and technology, chandlery and fishing gear.

Organisers were very pleased with the number of people who visited the event in 2012. Visitor numbers were up on 2011 and good sales and leads reported, which suggests recreational boating is becoming part of the leisure activity of South Korea.

The 2012 event hosted 147 exhibitors attending from Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, China, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa, France, Spain, the United States, Italy and Australia.

The main theme for Yacht & Boat Korea is 'get on the water', encouraging adults and children to get hands on experience with water craft of all sizes, part of the ongoing educational focus of the show.

May is the ideal time for hosting this increasingly popular fixture on Korea’s burgeoning marine calendar, with exquisite weather and ideal on-water conditions for those wishing to sample some of the diverse watercraft on show.
