April 3, 2018 Exhibitions No Comments Email Email

With an exhibition area of 55,000 square meters, featuring exhibitors from 15 countries and regions including New ZealandItalyAustraliaSouth KoreaJapanTaiwan and Hong Kong, the ‘360-Degree Water Carnival’ theme is a diversified leisure ecology to appeal to China’s growing affluent middle class – a weekend of fun activities, educational programs, rewarding partnerships, yacht visits, product launches and celebrity appearances.

Appeal of a Waterfront Leisure lifestyle

Waterfront recreation tourism is a rapid-growth industry. According to authoritative statistics, 55% of the tourists in China currently choose to “play with water”, and the total value of waterfront tourism will reach more than RMB 5 trillion.

And now, with the government’s gradual liberalization and financial support, plus the appreciation of the sharing economy, the price of boat/yacht rentals has become approachable ­­- no longer an out-of-reach luxury item.

During the Chinese Spring Festival at the 2018 Sanya Boating Tourism Market, the three boat/yacht terminals received a total of 25,900 visits in 7 days, and the average selling price of the retail outlets was 10,000 RMB/3 hours. As estimated, the relative consumption income was more than 200 million RMB.

CIBS2018 is The Dock of The Town

Well-known exhibitors this year include Beneteau (showing their latest models Swift Trawler 30, Barracuda 8 and Oceanis 41.1), Jeanneau (Prestige 520), Omnia (Sessa Fly 42), O’Neill, Jetsett and Falcon, while Guangzhou Baowei Yacht will bring their latest and best models. Expect other mystery big boats to be unveiled as well.

Equipment accessories are wholly represented: Mercury Maritime will launch their maritime propulsion systems, expect to see Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Baisheng, Baibang, Alpas, Anqidi, Pinel and Hidea with exciting products as well.
