After eight successful editions, Beirut Boat has become the region’s most coveted meeting place for VIPs, luxury yacht owners, marine sports enthusiasts and key players in the marine industry from the Middle East and all over the world. In its last show, Beirut Boat welcomed 28,000 visitors and 130 exhibitors representing 250 major international brands.
The upcoming 9th International Boat and Super Yacht Show will be taking place from 14 to 18 May at its new location, the Port of Beirut, Pier 1, Beirut, Lebanon, from 5 to 10 PM daily. This year’s edition is expected to be the biggest yet, welcoming a higher number of exhibitors; specifically international participants lured by the Port of Beirut’s reputation as a renowned departure point towards destinations like France, Italy, Cyprus and Greece.
With hundreds of boats mooring across Lebanon’s marinas, there is a diversity of nationalities amongst the boat owners; some of who are Lebanese, but most of which are from elsewhere in the Middle East, returning each summer to enjoy the country’s beautiful Mediterranean climate and luxurious lifestyle.
Pier 1 at the newly renovated Port of Beirut is the country’s largest maritime venue with a range of modern facilities and added benefits. Conveniently and centrally situated in Downtown Beirut, the new and bigger location can receive a significantly larger number of attendees and media representatives, giving exhibitors wider exposure than previous editions, and providing visitors with an extensive array of luxury boats, equipment and accessories from leading international names.
In addition, the revamped space will be offering a more diverse showcase of luxury goods, including the latest collections of cars, clothes, furniture, jewelry and watches; in addition to hosting live shows, musical performances and much more in a unique atmosphere of celebration and glamour.
Beirut Boat 2014 will be held under the High Patronage of His Excellency the President of the Republic of Lebanon General Michel SLEIMAN, and organized by IFP (International Fairs & Promotions) and Messe Düsseldorf, the German-based, world-leading event organizer of Boot Düsseldorf, one of the largest boat shows worldwide.
