This is the second year that Egypt holds its international Boat Show. By this show, which was inaugurated by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism on the 14th to the 17th of February, 2008, Egypt is trying to find its place in the international market for a new type of tourism.
Mr. Hani Mahrous, general manager of Marketing and Sales of HE magazine, and organizer of the show in collaboration with Art Line Company, said “This year we have 3 halls dedicated to host more than 90 international companies for yachts and boats and their accessories at the Cairo Conference Center. We are hosting international brands like Four Winns, Chris Craft, Malibu, Chaparral, and Montery boats”.
Regarding sports tourism, he added “the Ministry of Tourism is giving special attention to sports tourism, as it is unconventional and increasing in Egypt. Today, sports tourism is more familiar to people especially in Sharm El Sheikh and the Red Sea. By organizing this type of shows, we aim not only to create, but also to maintain our place in the international boat and yachts market”.
