Singapore Yacht Show 2020 postponed due to Coronavirus

As the 2020 edition of the annual Singapore Yacht Show event approaches, organisers have decided to postpone the show until October 2020, due to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic.

Andy Treadwell, CEO and founder of the Singapore Yacht Show, released the following statement:

“In light of the continuing and escalating coronavirus epidemic and the likely effect it would have on attendance and participation in the Singapore Yacht Show next month, we have over the last few days sought the opinion of our major exhibitors and partners as to whether they thought we should postpone the event to later in the year.

“The overwhelming response has been that we should indeed do so, and our own assessment of our responsibility for the health and safety of all of those both working at and attending the show only serves to affirm that decision.

“So, we now need to reluctantly announce that our 10th anniversary edition will be postponed to October 2020, by which time we hope travel restrictions and public perception of danger will have eased. The exact dates are yet to be agreed with our host venue partner, ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove.

“This is an extraordinary situation for which nobody is to blame, of course, but we nonetheless sympathise with all our exhibitors, sponsors, partners and visitors for any inconvenience that the situation is causing. Our own business is going to be significantly affected too, but we feel we must do our bit to help stop yet more people becoming ill or suffering loss.

“I am lucky enough to have a team who are totally loyal and supportive, as are our long-term business partners, and all agree wholeheartedly that we will pull together and get through this difficult period to enjoy an even bigger, better and more successful than ever Singapore Yacht Show in October 2020.”
