Organisers of the first Kuwait Boat Show, which is to be held from April 21-25 at Al Kout Marina, anticipate that in excess of 10,000 visitors from Kuwait and the Gulf region will attend the show.
More than 60 exhibitors are set to demonstrate 200 of the latest product lines during the five-day show, which is sponsored by Nakheel.
"The Gulf is one of the fastest growing leisure boating markets in the world," said Manal Shaheen, Nakheel director of sales, marketing and customer service.
The real estate developer hopes that by sponsoring the exhibition, it will generate support for its residential projects.
"Our recent launch of the Marina Residences on The Palm Jumeirah is a great demonstration of how keen we are to attract the kind of discerning consumer who might attend the Kuwait Boat Show," said Shaheen.
"These incredible properties are world-class, and perfectly suited as a base for sailing in the Gulf," he added.
"Our development The Palm Jumeirah will add many kilometres of waterfront and numerous new marinas to Dubai’s coastline, and with the completion of The Palm Deira and our other waterfront projects, we will have supplied 40,000 new berths for leisure boats to meet this growing demand."
