23-25 October 2015, Royal Phuket Marina

Bangkok, 3 July 2015 - Aimed at a massively burgeoning regional market and showcasing the largest range of luxury products ever seen in Southeast Asia, APCWL Lifestyle Expo

represents an advantage-laden sourcing forum for 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 the Royal Phuket Marina from 23-25 October 2015, and is the first event of its type to be held under the APCWL premium product forum concept.

Hillman Lentz, CEO and President, Hathor Investment Group, explains: “Growth in numerous luxury markets across Asia has been solid. Luxury car markets are up 10 percent

from 2013, driven by emerging markets, where luxury vehicles are still seen as a symbol of  status and a social enabler. Hotels are also benefiting from steadily growing demand, up 9  percent.”

He continues, “A new generation of consumers who are seeking superior lifestyle experiences, helped to fuel significant growth in the luxury goods market. Whisky and fine

wine and are often synonymous with luxury, while the overall beverage category comprises 30 percent of the food and beverage market; demand for gourmet food is unrelenting. There

are many luxury industries that can benefit from a powerful and convenient forum such as APCWL.”

Attracting millionaires and billionaires from all over Asia, APCWL – the Asia Pacific Cigar Whisky and Luxury Lifestyle Expo, offers exhibitors and sponsors the best opportunity to

showcase their products to High and Ultra High Net Worth Individuals. APCWL 2015 is dedicated to offering a premier sourcing channel across a great many luxury product

categories, including: cigars & accessories (featuring the largest range of cigars in Asia), fine wines, catering, restaurants & fine cuisine, whisky (again, Asia’s largest single-source

Organized by Hathor, this three-day event is billed as a major luxury goods networking opportunity attracting the cr?me de la cr?me of Asia. Asia is the single largest and fastest

growing market for high-end luxury lifestyle products in the world today. Cigar sales are growing in excess of 18% per annum with single malt whisky increasing by more than 21%

per annum; Asia is leading the world in the expansion of middle and high-income earners.
