The Dubai Boat Show 2021 has been cancelled
This decision had been in the air for a few weeks but was officially confirmed yesterday when, due to the continuing Covid 19 pandemic, the organisers announced the cancellation of the 2021 edition, scheduled for 10-13 March.
The postponement was also decided due to the evolution of regulations and logistics on the movement of people and yachts at international level which, as it was easy to foresee, has seriously mortgaged the variety of brands that would have been present at the event.
This is the second cancellation for the Dubai Boat Show which, unfortunately, was the first international boat show to be affected by the pandemic, in March 2020.
New dates have already been set for the next edition, which will take place from 8 to 12 March 2022.
“Diversity of choices for visitors and safety are always the key considerations for Gulf Craft so we fully support the decision to postpone the Dubai International Boat Show. While we were looking forward to taking part in this leading industry event, we respect and value the focus of the authorities in ensuring the wellbeing of all participants, visitors and staff.”
Abeer Alshaali, Acting CEO, Gulf Craft
“We are delighted that the organisers of Dubai Boat Show consulted us on the global leisure yachting developments. It is certainly the best decision for yacht builders globally for the event to take place at a more opportune time”
Michael Breman, Sales Director, Lürssen Yachts
“We fully endorse Dubai Boat Show’s latest decision resultant of the continued challenges in boat movements regionally. We will continue our support to the show for the next edition in 2022”
Ahmad Musaed Al Ameeri, CEO, Seas & Deserts
“Ocean 360 supports the decision of the Dubai Boat Show and we’re looking forward to welcoming the yachting industry and enthusiasts to Dubai for the March 2022 edition”
