The following luxury lifestyle event, the Thailand International Boat Show follows, and will take place 11-14 January 2024 at Royal Phuket Marina.

Thailand Charter Week 2023 The Thailand Charter Week is Asia’s premier B2B charter event for yachts and superyachts, a luxury yachting event that provides a platform to luxury charter yacht companies, in a stunning location. The Thailand Charter Week is an international charter event for yachting and tourism industry professionals.

Those attending will experience Phuket's famed hospitality and enjoy a programme of destination, activities, sustainable yachting information, and local entertainment.

The Thailand Charter Week will also present a programme of yacht inspections, presentations, discussions, yachting activities and networking opportunities. For the first few days, charter yachts are on display at Phuket Yacht Haven Marina, and panel discussions and presentations about various subjects, such as Thailand destinations, marinas, and cultural activities, will be offered. The last day features a one-day familiarisation cruise aboard participating yachts to exciting charter destinations around Phuket and the Andaman Sea, to help build and realise potential business and partnerships.
