With just over four months to go to the opening of the Singapore Yacht Show’s (SYS) 10th Anniversary, and the Singapore Government’s current advice still positive that large scale events will be able to resume “nearly normal” service from the end of September, the SYS team and its partners are busy working hard (from home!) to make this landmark edition one to remember - in more ways than one.
They will shortly be finalising with the Singapore Tourism Board and the Ministry of Health just what protective procedures will need to implemented at this year's show. Like every other event organiser, the team is naturally determined to fully protect every single individual - exhibitors, partners, sponsors, contractors and visitors alike - involved in any way at the show, and will adhere to all the guidelines that stakeholders recommend.
SYS 2020 will once again bring together leading yacht brands from all over the world, alongside service and accessory providers as well as luxury lifestyle offerings, all displaying their latest models, innovations, design concepts and new product launches.
For the very first time, the four-day event, running from 15-18 October, will be moved almost entirely on to the water - in the completely re-designed and rejuvenated ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove. Thanks to the new pontoon configuration, SYS will feature air-conditioned exhibition booths and showrooms all around the perimeter of the marina – so that visitors can go straight to the heart of the action for an immersive, 360-degree experience.

SYS 2020, having been one of the first boat shows in the world to unfortunately have to postpone, may nevertheless be one of the first to go ahead again. Health screenings are being planned, security will be heightened and social distancing procedures that the government is advising will be put in place, and the team is getting more and more indications of support and attendance from potential buyers and local dealerships like Princess Yachts SEA. “Perhaps surprisingly, the level of enquiries we have received during this pandemic period has been well up – both for buying and for charter," says their country head in Singapore, Alister Brunskill, with many other exhibitors in both Hong Kong and Singapore saying exactly the same thing.
We are confident that the rescheduled SYS, closely followed by the inaugural Hong Kong Yacht Show (HKYS) from 19-22 November, will give the industry here the boost it will badly need by then. If you would like to find out how your company can get involved in either SYS or HKYS, and showcase your brand to this captive audience of buyers, please get in touch with the sales team.
