Coming up 1-5 March 2016 is the Dubai International Boat Show, at the Club Mina Seyahi. Opening each day at 3 p.m., the extensive show features an enormous number of demos, and free surf, paddle and sail sessions each day.
Mega yacht Desert Rose and Super Yacht Virgo 88 will sail each evening, setting out meals and/or drinks for your dining pleasure, whether you're an exhibitor or visitor.
For watersport enthusiasts, there will be a chance to talk with experts on diving, kayaking, fishing, underwater photography, snorkeling, kite surfing and dragon boating, among others. You can also jump in with "taster sessions" of a number of the water sports available, including jet surfing.
The Middle East Yachting Conference will also be held Monday 29 February at the Al Andalus Ballroom BC, Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa Autograph Collection. Some of the many distinguished speakers include the head of Global Super Yacht Law John Leonida, Yacht Specialist Kerim Tapkan, Mondo Marine CEO Roberto Zambrini, and ICOMIA Secretary General Udo Kleinitz, among many others.
Gourmet restaurants, small outlets and food truck fare will all be available, serving a wide range of foods for your pleasure, and the Super Car Promenade will display some of the newest, high-end, seldom-seen vehicles for your pleasure or purchase.
No boat show would be complete without a place for the shoppers to browse, and Retail Village 2016 will be available for those looking for shipboard fashions.
More than 35,000 attendees are expected, and dozens of partners, vendors and sponsors are looking forward to showing their top-of-the-line items for the discerning public. See you there!
