The Saudi International Boat Show this year promises to showcase a broader range of marine products and services to cater to the growing number of maritime developments in the GCC.

New business opportunities have emerged for international suppliers with the recent announcement of 12 major maritime projects to be implemented within the next three years across the GCC with a collective value of over US$ 35 billion, including three in Saudi Arabia in King Abdullah Economic City, Jizan Economic City and the Kingdom City.

Organised by Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), endorsed by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities and venue managed by Al Ahlam Marine Tourism Group, the Saudi International Boat Show 2010 will be held from 8 to 11 December 2010 at the Al Furusya Marina & Yacht Club in Jeddah.

"We have made extensive preparations to accommodate an expected increase in the number of visitors and exhibitors at this year's Saudi International Boat Show. This event provides a consolidating platform that will leverage the surge in demand for various maritime products and services in the Kingdom. We have studied feedback from last year's participants, allowing us to further improve this year's showcase that will include a much more comprehensive range of the latest super yachts, leisure crafts, accessories and services," said Helal Saeed Almarri, CEO, Dubai World Trade Centre.

Many local and international leading brands have already confirmed their participation, including Al Ahlam Marine Tourism Group, Al Khorayef Commercial Co. Ltd., ART Marine LLC, Blue Limits, Chehab Marine, Garmin, KB Marine, Mega Marine, Princess Yachts, Westport and many more.

Saudi International Boat Show 2010, which attracted over 37,000 buyers from all over the region during its inaugural exhibition last year, will feature a dedicated Supplies & Services Pavilion that will group together regional dealers and distributors displaying an extensive range of navigation equipment, engines and fixtures and fittings.

 The Marina Display Area will showcase top-of-the-range models from the world's leading boat manufacturers in what is the largest display of superyachts, leisure crafts, fishing boats, power and sailing boats in the Kingdom.

The Saudi International Boat Show Dive Village, on the other hand, is Saudi Arabia's only dedicated diving village, offering diving lessons and seminars as well as several other activities focusing on diving and marine tourism.

Saudi International Boat Show 2010 will also feature a full weekend of festivities.
