Bahrain Boat Show kicks off today
Manama, March 28, 2013
Bahrain Boat Show International, which kicks off today and aims to target boat and yacht enthusiasts from around the region, has lined up a range of spectacular entertainment.
Thousands of people are expected to flock to the Amwaj Islands Marina, where the show will run until March 30, according to a report in our sister publication, the Gulf Daily News.
The show, now in its fourth year, is being organised by Knotika Boat Shows, in co-operation with Amwaj Marina, Tamkeen and Bahrain's Economic Development Board, among others.
A food court, live music and dance performances will accompany displays of boats, luxury yachts, water sport equipment, beach wear, marinas, charter waterfronts and marine services.
More than 100 exhibitors will be present at the event, with many of them being from Bahrain.
Knotika chief executive officer Wael Juju praised Tamkeen for encouraging local businesses to take part. He said the show would emphasis on entertainment with a wider array of choices for the public, from the smallest kayak to the largest boat.
Meanwhile, Tamkeen yesterday said it has supported 32 enterprises through its Tarweej scheme to participate in the show.
It said the number of participants and the amount of support provided increased from last year's show, where it provided support for 28 exhibitors.
Tamkeen private sector support senior manager Mohammed Bucheeri said they were committed to developing businesses through high-value opportunities.
"This event is considered one of those opportunities, providing marine businesses with a strong platform to showcase their products and expand their customer base," he said. – TradeArabia News Service
