The inaugural Thailand Charter Week (TCW) will run from the 16th to the 21st of November 2019 at the Phuket Yacht Haven Marina and be coordinated with the Ocean Marina Pattaya Boat Show. The TCW will not be open to the general public as it is a business to business charter event aimed at promoting Thailand as an international charter destination.
For the first year the target is 15 to 20 crewed charter yachts from 15 metres and above and 40 international charter brokers. The format will follow 3 days of on-water display at the Phuket Yacht Haven Marina followed by a 3 day familiarisation cruise around the waters of Phuket and the Andaman Sea.
The TYBA will employ the services of Lux Inc Media to provide organisational support and promotion of the show. Lux Inc is well known across the Asia Pacific region for providing high quality, luxury publications, digital media and Lifestyle events such as Yacht Style magazine and the Penang Rendezvous.
An organising committee of TYBA members will run the event with the participation of Fraser, Camper & Nicholsons, Northrop & Johnson, Asia Yacht Agency and other local charter companies. There will also be tentative collaboration with MYBA as discussed at the recent MYBA charter show in Barcelona.
