Set sail for the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show 2022


Expect maritime heritage, watersports, yachts and more.

Slip into your boat shoes and raise the anchor as the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show (ADIBS) is coming back to the capital this November.

Taking place from 24 to 27 November, the fourth edition of the ADIBS will once again see worldwide brands chart a course for Abu Dhabi and offer maritime aficionados a chance to cast their eyes (and hooks) upon the latest technologies in the world of boats, yachts, and maritime products, such as fishing and watersports equipment as well as maritime heritage shows and watersports activities in a luxurious setting.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nahyan bin Zayed Al Nayhan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Sports Council, the 2021 edition of the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) event saw more than 354 brands participating from 28 countries.
