Bahrain will host its first ever International Boat Show next month.
The event will coincide with the Bahrain International Grand Prix and is scheduled to take place April 21-25 at the Amwaj Islands.
The boat show is being organised by Knotika Holdings and hopes to attract in excess of 10,000 visitors.
More than 100 international exhibitors will attend the event and it will provide post-F1 entertainment to scores of visitors to the island.
"We've identified Bahrain as the next growth market to tap into and have backed this with opening Art Marine Bahrain last January," said Timothy Leese, Head of Regional Operation for Art Marine Bahrain.
"Art Marine is also delighted with the initiative shown by Knotika to host a boat show in Bahrain and further focus the leisure marine industries on this market. We'll be exhibiting at least eight boats, representing our key brands Azimut and Atlantis, at this boat show."
