Kuwait yacht show 2015

On February 3rd, the Third Edition of the Kuwait Yacht Show (KYS) will open at the Marina Crescent under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, the Prime Minister of the State of Kuwait.

Crowned by the unveiling of a global premiere and a number of regional premieres, together with the introduction of new international and local exhibitors, this edition is indeed a turning point for Kuwait Yacht Show.

Becoming a candidate member of the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers (IFBSO), this year’s KYS will also be audited by BPA.

Now, and for the first time, Kuwait is officially on the global boat show calendar.

“We are glad to participate again in the Kuwait Yacht Show and are proud to be announcing the global launch of our latest Majesty Superyacht at the event.” Erwin Bamps, Chief Executive Officer, Gulf Craft

Nouf Al Hajery, PH7 Events Managing Director, stressed: “This year, the Kuwait Yacht Show is being backed by a great governmental support, without which it would have been impossible to invite regional and international exhibitors. With that support, we felt it was our duty to work even harder to give Kuwait a much larger and more fully encompassing show than its first two editions.” She continued.

“The yacht market is recovering after suffering from the effects of the global financial crisis. Around the world new investments are being made to develop and expand product lines, and Kuwait is ready for this growth with the new marinas opening in 2015. We are proud to have been accepted in to the IFBSO, and see this as an accolade for the KYS and an honour for the nation of Kuwait. We are now working our way to be ranked alongside major global marine shows”.

Al-Hajeri then stressed the importance of the sponsors, media supporters and the Marina World management and clients “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Platinum Sponsors Boubyan Bank and Viva; Gold Sponsors Powerboat Center and Sirbb Circuit; our venue partner URC, our official timekeeper UlysseNardin; our official automotive partner Ali Alghanim & Sons; our insurance partner GIG and our contracting partner 4 FEST.” She continued, “Each person, organization or entity collaborating with KYS knows how vital a role they are playing in the success and continuation of the show. Every yacht owner who has agreed to free his space for KYS, every sponsor who has contributed in building KYS and every media partner who has helped in promoting the show locally, regionally or internationally has truly become a great ally and it is with honor that we thank each and every one of you.”

From his side, Mr. Abdulaziz Al Marzouq, AGM at Boubyan Bank, commented “Boubyan Bank associates and specializes in catering to a niche group of society. We are gladly sponsoring the Kuwait Yacht Show (KYS) as the target group of KYS is significantly the Kuwaiti Elites, and this falls in line with our strategy to accommodate to the different aspects of our customer base”. He went ahead to add, “The diversified services we offer our platinum and private banking clientele are a proof of our commitment to this target group, including credit card benefits, and the highest returns on deposits in Kuwait, as well as customized financing facilities”.

Commenting on VIVA’s participation, Mr. Abdulrazzaq Bader Al Essa, Director of Corporate Communications, said: “Our participation in this year’s Kuwait Yacht Show stems from our belief in the value this event has in raising the name of our beloved country internationally, especially as it is now an Official Candidate Member in the IFBSO. In addition, this event attracts thousands of visitors every year, and we look forward to welcoming visitors and VIVA customers to our stand, and showcasing the latest products and services we have to offer them.”
