New Dates Confirmed for Postponed Singapore Yacht Show
by Miranda Blazeby
New dates have been confirmed for the Singapore Yacht Show, which was postponed due to the global coronavirus outbreak.
Originally scheduled to take place from March 19 – 22, the 2020 10th edition of the show will now take place from October 15-18.
The show was one of the first superyacht industry events to be pushed back in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in February.
Organisers said the show will take place at the “completely redesigned” ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove and promised to unveil some “long-awaited new developments and changes to the show’s layout.”
Organisers also revealed that the entire show will take place on the water.
Chief executive of show organiser Verventia, Andy Treadwell, said it had been a “hugely difficult” decision to postpone the show in February.
However, he said that he took “heart” from the fact that “China seems to be turning the corner already”.
“So with a full six months delay to October, we are hopeful that the rescheduled show will be able to give the industry in these parts the boost that it will badly need by then,” he said.
