In addition to enabling specialists and experts to explore the latest innovations in luxury boat manufacturing, as well as in watersports and fishing equipment, the show lent a unique experience for 26,000 visitors to learn about the rich marine heritage of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and to participate in various edutainment programs presented at the show.”
