H.E. Tom Fletcher British Ambassador
"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".
Alecco Chiha General Manager- Team Nine Lebanon
"We’ve been in every Boat Show that has been going on in Lebanon. We represent many brands from the US market. This is an excellent job, I’m really surprised how the boat show is growing every year and this all due to the professional work of IFP"
Claudio Di Stefano Area Manager - Sistema Walcon Italy
"Our company is specialized in building marinas and we think Beirut and the Lebanon area could be the entrance door for the Middle East market which is a market we would like to investigate. The organization is very good and the show is nice. We are satisfied and we had some interesting contacts so we think it’s a good show"
Richard Mainwaring Regional Sales Manager - Mastercraft Boats
"I came to this boat show the first time last year. I am very impressed, we all look for good quality customers and there is a lot of people coming here that really intend to buy boats and we enjoy our time here. The growth of the boating here is great, there are a lot of people coming from many other countries"
Jean-Claude Abi Khalil General Manager - Prime Yachts Lebanon
"The Beirut Boat show is very important, especially that it’s the 8th edition. We know that Lebanon and Beirut by itself is a point of attraction for all the Lebanese and neighborhood when it comes to leisure and sea activity. IFP is a well known organizer in Lebanon and the region and we believe they did a great job first of all from an organization point of view and from the marketing and the sales because they attracted a lot of companies related directly or indirectly to this sector"
