ADNEC, organiser of the 2018 Abu Dhabi International Boat Show (ADIBS), has named Integro as its official global insurance partner for this year’s event. The new partnership will draw awareness to the customised solutions that Integro offers commercial and private clients.

According to ADNEC, the inaugural edition of ADIBS continues to gain momentum and increased international support through relationships with partners and sponsors. This year’s show will take place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from October 17-20.

“The first edition of ADIBS provides us with the opportunity to build and develop relationships with global professional organisations such as Integro, which we hope will continue for future editions of the show,” says Alex Nicholl, show director of ADIBS.

ADIBS is the largest-ever gathering of leisure marine and luxury yachting in Abu Dhabi, with over 180 exhibiting brands confirmed. It is expected to bring together 20,000 marine industry professionals, enthusiasts and local and foreign families over four days.

“The show is providing us with a valuable platform to share our tailored solutions and industry expertise with marine industry professionals and luxury yacht owners in Abu Dhabi,” says Carol Roberts, superyacht practice leader at Integro. “Our global market reach and specialist insurance expertise enables us to provide competitively-priced, customised programs to those with insurance requirements in the UAE.”

Organised and hosted by the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), ADIBS 2018 is supported by the Abu Dhabi government, Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, and Abu Dhabi Ports. It is hoped that the show will significantly enhance the UAE’s leisure marine market and help create greater awareness about Abu Dhabi as a global leisure marine and luxury yachting hub.
