Singapore Yacht Show announce new dates for 2020 edition after postponement

by on 03-21-2020 in NEWS

The team at Singapore Yacht Show (SYS) are delighted to announce that the 10th anniversary edition of the important Asian boat show will take place from 15th – 18th October 2020.

SYS was in contact with a number of participants, after postponing the show back in February, and these October dates were the preferred option. The rescheduled event will take place in the completely redesigned and rejuvenated ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove.

SYS has also announced new developments and changes to the show’s layout, that it hopes will elevate its customers experiences at the four-day event.  For the first time, SYS will be moving the whole show on-water, which means no more big exhibition tents on the adjacent grass areas. Instead, thanks to the new pontoon configuration, it is able to build air-conditioned exhibition booths and showrooms all around the perimeter of the marina, so that SYS can bring all visitors straight to the action for an immersive, 360-degree experience.

Arthur Tay, chairman of ONE°15 Marina, said, “As ‘Best Asian Marina’, we have a committed a substantial investment to renovate our flagship marina at Sentosa this year. We shall endeavour to complete most of the works prior to the rescheduled show dates so that everyone can experience our new marina during the 10th Singapore Yacht Show. Just like the industry, we are always looking to be nimble and stay relevant to the ever-changing market.”

Singapore Yacht Show took the difficult decision back in February to postpone the 10th anniversary show just six weeks prior to the opening day. The organisers have taken heart from the fact that China seems to be turning a corner already and Singapore and Hong Kong governments have been lauded for their positive and effective management of the crisis. With a six-month delay to October, SYS is hopeful that the rescheduled show will be able to give the yachting industry in these parts the boost that it will need by then.

The 11th edition of SYS is currently scheduled for 22nd – 25th April 2021.
