A series of professional forums will be held at the 2019 China International Boat Show

The organisers of the 2019 China International Boat Show (CIBS) have announced that an ‘industry breakfast’ for high net worth investors and leading companies will be taking place at this year’s event, allowing participants to share best practices and discuss the most topical issues facing the industry today.

The organisers intend this to be a valuable networking opportunity to engage with industry experts and give rise to new ideas, as well as to serve as a catalyst for the boating industry to consider sustainable development goals for the future.

In addition to networking sessions, a series of professional forums will also be taking place. The organisers have invited senior executives, specialist experts and well-known brands in the industry to Shanghai to explore and discuss China’s economic development.

Conferences such as the “China International Boat Industry Development Forum” and “Promoting the Boating Industry and Equipment Development Symposium” will help present the latest policy changes and assist in answering any questions about trading in China.

Now in its 24th edition, CIBS has grown to an impressive 55,000sq m, making it the largest indoor boating and yachting event in Asia. According to the organisers, 70% of the available space has already been booked with companies from 15 countries.

CIBS is co-organised by the China Shipbuilding Industry Association Boat Branch, Shanghai Shipbuilding Industry Association and UBM Sinoexpo. It runs from June 20-23 at Shanghai’s National Convention and Exhibition Center.
