QIBS 2015 proves to be a great success

The third edition of the Qatar International Boat Show (QIBS) has finished for another year, with numbers proving it to be yet another successful event, and the largest to date with 85 vessels on display.

Taking place between 10th and 14th November 2015 at Mourjan Marinas in Lusail City, QIBS is fast becoming one of the most influential yachting events in the Middle East. This year, the event displayed vessels ranging from leisure day crafts to luxury superyachts, the largest of which was Gulf Craft’s Majesty 135 superyacht.

Faysal Mikati, founder and CEO of SnowComms, organisers of the show, commented, “QIBS has been at the forefront of attracting interest in the growing maritime sector. This is leading the continuous and accelerated growth of the country’s manufacturing industry, which means that it is already a worthy competitor to other major counties and manufacturers around the world.” 

Mikati continued, “Many international yachting brands have realised the growing importance of the show and companies such as Azimut, Sea Ray, Princess, Ferreti, Riva, Gulf Craft, Sunseeker, Benetti, Sunreef, Silver Yachts and Heesen Yachts now exhibit here every year.

“International companies are becoming more aware of the the myriad of business opportunities in the country, while the numbers of international exhibitors and international media are also proliferating as they come to this event to network with their peers and to discover the latest advancements in the maritime industry.”
