The organisers of the Thailand International Boat Show and Thailand Boat Festival have joined to form a new partnership and combine their respective events into one larger Phuket show.

The two firms will host a single boat show at Phuket Yacht Haven from 9-12 January 2025. The event name will remain Thailand International Boat Show, and the two firms say they aim to make the 2025 show the biggest to date. M Vision had been scheduled to host the Thailand Boat Festival in Phuket from 13-17 November 2024.

“We know the industry only wants one show, and this strategic alliance with M Vision will deliver just that,” says David Hayes, CEO of Jand Events, the Thailand International Boat Show organiser. “Together, we aim to deliver the best possible boat and lifestyle show in 2025.

Hayes adds, “M Vision’s experience organising large-scale Thai consumer events complements our boat show and luxury events experience. While we look to further grow international visitors, we will also build on our Thai visitor success this year and supercharge our efforts for 2025.”
Businesses and partners of the Thailand Boat Festival will join the line-up of boat and luxury brands from around the world that are already confirmed to be participating in the 2025 Thailand International Boat Show in January.

“Aligning our efforts with the Thailand International Boat Show makes a lot of sense for the industry, and hosting it at Phuket Yacht Haven is the ideal location,” says Opas Cherdpunt, CEO of M Vision. “This gives us more space in the water and opportunities to add more lifestyle displays and activities on land. And with direct access to Phang Nga Bay, boat exhibitors have the possibility to take potential buyers on sea trials during the show.”
