Exhibitor space at this year’s Qatar International Boat Show has completely sold out. With three weeks still to go before the show opens, bookings have reached full capacity – despite the show being double the size of last year’s event at more than 25,000 sq m.

Not only has the area increased, but there will also be a much improved layout, says Faysal Mikati, vice present of event organiser Snow Comms. There will also be a higher percentage of international exhibitors and a huge number of repeat exhibitors.

“Visitors will be able to see over 60 boats on display including world acclaimed brands such as Azimut, Sea Ray, Princess, Ferreti, Riva, Gulf Craft, Sunseeker, Prestige, Itama, Al Shaali Marine, Benetti, Sunreef, Esen Yachts, Ares, Lagoon, Amer Yachts, Cranchi, Everglades and more,” says Mikati.

“Other exhibitors of note include Lürssen, Y.CO, Palmer Johnson, Tan Services, Blohm + Voss amongst others.”

Now in its 2nd edition, the 2014 Qatar International Boat Show will be held from November 11-14 at Mourjan Marinas in Lusail City.
