Bahrain Boat Show International
Knotika Holding announced today the beginning of the countdown leading up to the biggest Boat Show yet set to facilitate major growth within the thriving marine leisure industry in the region.
The third annual Bahrain Boat Show scheduled to kick off at Amwaj Marina at 4pm on November 23rd will cater to the industry’s finest with a comprehensive entertainment program to compliment the four-day event. Postponement of the show this year has served as a major advantage for BBSI 2011 by allowing organizers additional time to enlarge the list of participants, widen the range of activities and take advantage of the good climate. Held under the patronage of HRH Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa and in partnership with Bahrain’s Economic Development Board whose participation in the show is in support of the 2030 Economic Vision.
Tamkeen’s Bahrain Enterprise Development scheme aimed at extending financial assistance to 30 marine enterprises coupled with the Ministry of Information’s support in communicating the importance of the leisure marine industry has helped BBSI 2011 reel in some of the biggest industry players who have expressed their full support and excitement about this milestone international event.
The Boat Show ranks amongst the kingdom’s top high-profile initiatives that include the triptych of Land, Sea and Air, Formula One and the Air Show, all of which are aimed at facilitating positive international attention and encouraging the marine and tourism sectors. Additionally it provides a gateway through which local businesses can benefit and engage in a dynamic business environment.
