The show attracted 13,000-plus visitors and featured more than 200 boats and a range of other products from local, regional and international exhibitors.

"The results of the first EBSI were phenomenal,” said Wael Juju, president of show organizer Knotika Holding. “Many of this year's exhibitors have already requested to book their stand for next year's show, most requesting even more space.”
