International Fairs & Promotions (IFP) – Lebanon and Messe Düsseldorf have moved Beirut Boat 2014 to a lavish new location with several advantages. In its 9th edition, the upscale Beirut Boat will be taking place at its new official venue, the Port of Beirut, Pier I, from May 14 to 18, 2014, where a wider array of luxurious yachts and boats will benefit from more exhibition and mooring space. The venue is ideally located in Beirut’s trendy Downtown area, minutes away from the city’s most renowned 5 star accommodations. Transportation is therefore more convenient, in addition to numerous parking spaces on location.
Being the most specialized show of its kind in Lebanon, Beirut Boat brings you a unique opportunity to attain record business sales in a select and relaxed environment at one of the region’s most acclaimed boat shows. This is your one-off chance to meet international boating companies and make multi-million dollar business deals.
With a year-on-year success story, the show has scored a 15% growth in water surface in 2012 with international brand names registering to showcase their vessels. A significant increase in land surface was also registered as key players in up-scale real estate development, hospitality and luxury retail partook in the event, adding glamour and appeal to Beirut Boat.
In light of the current favorable market conditions and the increasing demand on boats, yachts and marinas in Lebanon, Beirut Boat 2014 is expected to attract more than 28,000 visitors including local, regional and international high-net worth buyers. Enjoy a day out by the sea while meeting thousands of VIPs coming from all over the world to discover the impressive showcase of boats and luxury products.
With its high-caliber program of daily activities, the 9th International Boat & Super Yacht Show will entice all your senses: achieve impressive business results while relaxing by the sea with a glass of champagne in hand and surrounded by the most extravagant and enjoyable of marine activities.
‘’The most important thing that I’ve seen in this fair is that Beirut is very much open for business. This isn’t a country of popular deception often in the West. This is a country that is thriving at the moment, that is really dynamic, ambitious, and where companies can come and do seriously good business. It’s very encouraging. So the boat fair has my full support‘’. H.E. Tom Fletcher British Ambassador
