With a global reputation as the definitive luxury lifestyle hub in Asia, Phuket, with its forthcoming 20-billion Baht luxury mega mall and growing market for yacht-scene stakeholders, is the home of luxury life in the Asia Pacific. Hathor Investment Group Limited, the company behind the massively successful Whisgars chain of premium whisky and cigar bars, has chosen Phuket as the inaugural home of APCWL – the Asia Pacific Cigar Whisky and Luxury Lifestyle Expo, which enables exhibitors and attendees to capitalize on Phuket’s growing stature as a “global luxury lifestyle destination.”
The Pearl of Asia development, itself set to become a headline attraction in Phuket with a luxury mall offering bigger than any in Bangkok, spearheads a dramatic growth phase for the island. Together with Phuket’s reputation as a ‘must-visit’ luxury yachting locale, the island is set to surge further as it attracts luxury events centered on its unique lifestyle offering in Asia. Aimed at a massively burgeoning regional market and showcasing the largest range of cigars and whisky ever seen in Southeast Asia, APCWL Lifestyle Expo represents a competitively priced, advantage-laden sourcing forum for trade buyers, agents, wholesalers, retailers and importers in the Asia Pacific Region.
Industry professionals come together to do business, promote products, expand their markets, consolidate business relations and exchange ideas in the energetic and refreshing environment of Thailand’s most popular resort location, Phuket. APCWL will be held at Royal Marina Phuket from 23-25 October, 2015, and is the first event of its type to be held under the APCWL premium product forum concept.
