Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 Sells Out

(Sanya, China - December 21, 2013) The organiser of the yearly Hainan Rendez-Vous ultra-lifestyle show announced today that all spaces for the upcoming 2013 show are now sold out. Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 takes place March 30 - April 2nd, 2012, at the Visun Royal Yacht Club (Sanya, Hainan). The early sell out will enable the China Rendez-Vous and Hainan Events teams to focus on their comprehensive domestic marketing campaign that is finding record interest among top financial elites in all areas of China. At the same time the organisers are busy developing a rich new line-up of social and cultural programs and a more robust VIP hospitality plan for the show.

“Being sold out at this stage will allow us to concentrate on what differentiates Hainan Rendez-Vous from traditional lifestyle shows ,” said Delphine Lignieres, CEO and Founder of China Rendez-Vous. “Our focus will now be on further developing the event's networking platform with stimulating and creative on-site activities. Our goal is to share with show visitors our passion for the boating way of life and related lifestyles, and we want to provide show experiences that are engaging, seductive and unforgettable”.

Attracted by the opportunity to network with peers amidst the world's top brands of yachts, private jets, supercars and luxury goods, thousands of China's most successful corporate leaders and entrepreneurial elites have attended Hainan Rendez-Vous each of the last three years, and increased demand for exposure at the show has manifested itself in a number of ways, the organiser said. New luxury brands from Europe, America, the Middle East and Russia have reached out in hopes of attending, while most of the companies that exhibited at the 2012 edition are returning, many with a larger presence.

At the 2013 show's jet static display, world-leading business jet brands Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault and Gulfstream, all of which have exhibited at past Rendez-Vous editions, will be joined by Eurocopter and Italian jet manufacturer Piaggio Aerio. Their sleek aircraft will shine on the tarmac near the beautiful new VIP terminal of Sanya Phoenix International Airport, and also receive excellent exposure on the show's marina fairgrounds next to the superyacht brands, many of which are members of SYBass, the elite Superyacht Builders Association.

Chopard returns as a main sponsor of the show and will again exhibit its celebrated jewellery and watches, this time including an exceedingly rare and precious 31.32 carat Chameleon Diamond. “Chopard is delighted to be once again the official partner of the Hainan Rendez-Vous for the 4th consecutive year! I look forward to meeting all of the Chopard Gala Dinner and Jewellery & Watch Exhibition guests and getting the opportunity to show them a selection of Chopard jewellery and watches pieces we brought especially from Switzerland, ensuring an experience they will never forget.” Said Ms. Caroline Scheufele, Co-President. Chopard.Pernod Ricard returns with its Elite Club and a larger, 390 square metre version of its wildly popular champagne bar. Outstanding chefs from Mandarin Oriental Sanya Hotel will be offering their gastronomical delights at a designated on-site venue, and Lacoste is expected to put on a spectacular party once again as it celebrates its 80th anniversary.

Other must-attend occasions will include Bernardaud's 150th anniversary celebration, as well as many new top level networking events such as a Pink Party, Riviera night, multiple gala dinners, sea trials, and more.

France’s delegation is coming back in strong form with top level lifestyle brands, and the 2013 Art in Hainan Exhibition, themed “Jardin D'Art”, will also add art de vivre into the show with an evocative collection of works exploring the concept of the garden as a place conducive to artistic inspiration, inner harmony and daydreaming.

Although berths and exhibition space for Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 are sold out, interested organisations still have a chance to be involved in a number of other activities under planning. They include a unique Golf Tournament (with 144 players), and different seminars related to investments in Art, Wine and other topics pertinent to the luxury lifestyle. Those planning to attend the show as visitors, meanwhile, can register their interest by sending an email to visitor@hainanrendezvous.com
