Dubai International Boat Show 2020 postponed

The 28th edition of the Dubai International Boat Show, which was meant to take place this month (Tuesday March 10 until Saturday March 14) at the swish Dubai Harbour in Dubai Marina, has now been postponed until later on this year.

The massive marine event will now take place from Tuesday November 24 until Saturday November 28.

A statement on the official Dubai Boat Show website reads:

“In light of the evolving global developments around the COVID-19 virus, Dubai World Trade Centre has been closely monitoring the situation, particularly as it pertains to our key stakeholders and participating delegations from around the world across all our upcoming shows.

Whilst the UAE remains completely safe for travel, and has deployed the strictest medical and hygiene protocols, we fully recognise that for some specific shows, we have a high majority of key participants significant to the event’s programme that are unable to travel due to restrictions in their home country.

As such, we have been working closely to assure that our clients’ needs are most effectively addressed, and the delivery of strong international participation considered, in these extraordinary times.”

In better news, the rescheduled event will now coincide with Expo 2020 Dubai and promises to be bigger and better with more inclusive access for all.
