Super Yacht Show Returns

Abu Dhabi will host a superyacht show in 2010

It has been confirmed that the second edition of the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (ADYS) will be run next year with organisers making significant changes to the format.

Set to run for two days from 25th February, the show will again be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec) marina but on this occasion, there will be more exhibition space available with format changes designed to improve the flow of traffic at the show. In 2010 all yachts will be in the water and the exhibition moved to be near the marina in front of the boats.

featuring yachts at least 25 metres long will be held next February 25-27 at.

The inaugural event held early this year saw sales confirmed at US$200 million a figure seen as a promising first attempt.

Organised by Informa Yacht Group (IYG), the same promoters responsible for running the Monaco Yacht Show and The Super Yacht Cup, the show aims to bring together shipyards, manufacturers, service companies, yacht brokers, interior designers, consultants, and marina developers.

Franck Dailles, Group Director of IYG, said, “2010 is definitely going to be an unforgettable exhibition to visit and do, business at.”
