Speaking on behalf of the entire Messe Düsseldorf team, I would like to welcome you all very warmly to Beirut Boat 2014 – the 9th International Boat & Super Yacht Show. The top names in international yacht construction await you in the unique atmosphere of the Downtown Harbour. Boats and yachts of all sizes, accompanied by an extensive selection of all types of boat equipment, as well as accessories for recreational and sport activities on the water, can be found here in the centre of attention.
Beirut Boat 2014 is considered to be the event for the international and regional boat and marine industry, especially in light of the significant growth in the marine tourism business. As one of the most successful maritime shows in the region, Beirut Boat attracted more than 28,000 visitors from Lebanon, the Eastern Mediterranean region and the Gulf States. And this year more than 130 exhibitors from 16 countries will present their new boats, products and services to the fair's visitors.
I would especially like to thank the entire team from our promotion partner, IFP – International Fairs and Promotion, who came through as always with professionalism and commitment in the organisation of the event.
Messe Düsseldorf and IFP are delighted about your participation in Beirut Boat 2014, and wish you great business contacts and constructive conversations.
