Its start is slated to coincide with EXPO 2020 Dubai, which was postponed from last year because of Covid-19.

“IWMC has been instrumental in uniting the local boating community and the marine industry and this year, as the host of the event, we hope to carry on the legacy of this renowned conference,” said MENA chairman John W.R. Paul in a statement. “The event will most certainly aid great partnerships to support the increase in demand for marina infrastructure in UAE and beyond.”
