Due to the recent events in Bahrain and around the region, the Third Annual Bahrain International Boat Show, which was slated to open from the 27th to the 30th of April 2011 in Amwaj Marina, will be postponed until later this year.  

Mr. Wael Juju, Organiser of the Bahrain International Boat Show, commented on the postponement, saying, “The Bahrain Boat Show is a unique event here in the Kingdom, with a direct positive impact on the economy and the people of Bahrain, and we are committed to ensuring we deliver the best show possible.  With respect to recent events however, it has been decided that the boat show will better serve Bahrain if it is postponed until later this year.  We are currently in talks with the relevant authorities to identify a suitable time, and once the details have been agreed, we will be making an announcement to that effect. We look forward to staging the widely anticipated third edition of the Bahrain International Boat Show in support of Bahrain and its ongoing growth in the years to come." 

The Bahrain International Boat Show brings with it a number of key benefits for the country and the community, encouraging local spending in Bahrain by visitors to the Boat Show, providing young Bahrainis with new and exciting work opportunities and supporting local boating and marine lifestyle companies, an aspect that Bahrain has been proud of for generations.
