The annual Asia Boating Awards was created by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines in 2005. The aim is to recognise the best of the maritime industry in Asia and internationally, in a high-end, nautically inspired event. The awards continue to this day, and are a benchmark for the industry in the Asia-Pacific.
The Asia Boating Awards 2013 will be held on March 29, one day prior the start of the Hainan Rendez-Vous, at the InterContinental Sanya Resort. This year, the awards are timed to give VIPs guests and industry insiders the chance to network and celebrate ahead of the region’s biggest yachting events. Guests will be able to take in the fine facilities before and after the event. With cocktails, dinner and entertainment, it promises to be the finest night yet in Asian yachting.
“The Asia Boating Awards are our way of recognising the best of boating in Asia. This exciting region is changing rapidly into one of the world’s yachting hot spots, with amazing destinations, new marinas, eager yacht builders and of course, plenty of purchasing power. The Asia Boating Awards is a chance for the Asia-Pacific to shine before the world, for the winners and nominees alike.”
