The Dubai International Boat Show has truly developed into an event that will excite and entertain the whole family as well as being an exquisite international platform for global trade, nextworking and extravaganza.

In line with Dubai’s global reputation as a destination for world-class events and entertainment, the show’s new activity-based offerings will move the region’s leading event for the marine leisure industry to an all-new level.

“Great events become truly exceptional when they become experimental in nature, and shift away from the traditional passive, attendee-only model. Dubai, as an Emirate, has long spearheaded this trend and has developed an international reputation for being a must-visit global lifestyle destination, and the Dubai International Boat Show aims to embody this reputation as we continue to expand on our world class features,” said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, DWTC, organiser of Dubai International Boat Show.

At the Dubai International Boat Show 2016, OCEANCO will unveil their latest 90m project MOONSTONE.

More than 30,000 visitors from 120 countries days of the show, and scheduled to view more than 430 boats on land and water, as well as products from over 800 exhibitors and brands from 51 countries. Show sectors for this year include: Marina Display, Outdoor Display, Luxury and Lifestyle (LSS), Equipment Services and Supplies (ESS), and Diving.
