More exciting attractions in SEAFAIR 2015
Organizers of SEAFAIR 2014 yesterday vowed more featured attractions and exciting water-related activities when the yacht and marine exposition returns next year at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Bay Terminal.
“We saw more visitors as the trade fair went on. It proved to be a learning experience for all of us and these inputs and insights will serve us well in staging SEAFAIR again next year,” said Ey Bacasmas-Po of organizing Legworks Events.
Po noted that the trade fair’s vast potential “to become a hub where the stakeholders in the yachting and boating industry can come together under one roof to not only buy and sell but also share and exchange ideas for the growth of their respective markets.”
She added the event was also ideal for complimentary enterprises such as travel agencies, hotels, aquatic gear and apparel and beachwear.
Po was looking forward to more exhibitors next year and thanked partners ALS Marine, Tronqued Boats, Tow and Stow Industries, Vikings Lifesaving devicew, Nautimus Sports, Eljan Sports and Scan Marine for featuring their yachts, speedboats, game fishing boats, jet skis, leisure craft and lifeboats.
She acknowledged the extensive media coverage for the four-day showcase, which was written prominently in major dailies, complete with pictures, while major TV networks as GMA 7, TV 5, Solar, Balls TV and the Buhay Marino program gave it substantial treatment in their telecasts.
Adm. Dan Villa, a veteran advertising and marketing man, saw expanded possibilities in the event also backed by Ayaland Premier, Megaworld and Robinsons Land, including engaging students and faculty of maritime schools “since a yacht and marine trade fair is tailor-fit for them.
“This is a chance for them to make their pitch to our visitors the merits and advantages of seeking a career in the maritime industry.”
