Abu Dhabi International Boat show to kick off next week
The inaugural edition of the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show will kick off in the capital next week, with 270 companies from 25 countries participating.
The boat show, which is being held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre Marina, will run from October 17 to 20, organisers announced on Tuesday.
It will showcase the latest range of leisure marine products, particularly international and regional luxury yachts and boats manufactured by different companies.
“We decided to organise the boat show after an extensive study of the local market, focusing on sectors identified in the Abu Dhabi Plan and Emirate’s Vision 2030, where leisure and tourism sectors are recognised as the main pillars of economic growth and diversification, along with other sectors,” said Humaid Matar Al Daheri, Group CEO of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (Adnec).
Many participating companies have announced their intention to launch new products, ranging from luxury yachts, boats, specialised water sports and fishing equipment for the first time at a global level, he added.
