Dates for fourth edition of Qatar International Boat Show officially announced

Organisers have announced that the fourth Qatar International Boat Show (QIBS) will be held at Lusail Marina in Lusail City, Doha, between 7th and 10th December 2016.

The show has enjoyed much success, attracting over 50,000 visitors across 88 countries in its history. According to organisers, this year will see more major manufacturers and exhibitors at the show, alongside leading international and GCC companies from the yachting industry.

Ahmad Abdulla Al Hammadi, executive director of marketing & sales at Qatar Diar commented, “For the fourth consecutive year, QIBS has become a principal annual fixture on the sector’s calendar of specialised regional and international exhibitions, which underlines the remarkable success it has achieved over this short period of time and its ability to attract the industry’s key players.

“QIBS also consolidates Doha’s position as a vibrant global destination to organise shows of the calibre.”

Khalid Essa Al Mannia, chairman of QIBS organisers Al Mannai Events also commented on the support of the show from Qatari officials led by His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar and represented by HE Sheikh Abdulla Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, who is a patron of QIBS.

He commented, “QIBS contributes to supporting the tourism and exhibitions sector in Qatar, attracting investments to the country. This highlights the Qatari government’s relentless support of the private sector that drives the economy’s competitiveness and helps in the diversification of income resources, including the vital sectors of tourism, exhibitions and marine services.”
