Central Pattana Public Company Limited (CPN), part of Central Group, Thailand’s no.1 property development and investment, has proudly declared its sponsorship of the 30th Phuket King’s Cup Regatta. This will be the second consecutive year the Regatta has received the excellent support of CPN. The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta 30th Anniversary will be held from 3 to 10 December, 2016 at Kata Beach Resort and Spa, Phuket.
CPN is committed to the growth of Phuket’s reputation as a world-class marine tourism center, helping to build awareness for the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta and the Island of Phuket on the world stage.

It serves to the benefit of Phuket’s hotels and restaurants which enjoy a surge of custom before, during and after “Regatta Week.”
Dr. Nattakit Tangpoonsinthana, Executive Vice President for Marketing of Central Pattana Public Company Limited, said, “It is the second year of our sponsorship of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta. This event will support Phuket and help it to move forward as a well-recognized center for luxury beach and sea visitors. We are certain about the Regatta’s potential because it was named Best Asian Regatta for three straight years. It attracts people from around the world such as athletes, tourists and media, helping to drive and develop the local economy in Phuket.”
He continues, “To be harmonious with the business direction of CPN, we constructed Central Phuket which was always set to become a World Class Shopping Destination for locals and tourist from all over the world. There are brand name stores available, plus the innovation of merging modern retail with Thai culture and historical elements. It also features one of the largest underwater world in Thailand. The most important thing is that CPN notices a position and the potential of Phuket as a heart of tourism for the region. Phuket has readiness in every way for welcoming and leaving a great impression for all visiting guests.”
