Abu Dhabi International Boat Show

Abu Dhabi International Boat Show (ADIBS) is launching a new innovation hub for its upcoming fifth edition, in partnership with startup hub Yachting Ventures.

Organisers of the annual show, which runs this year from 9-12 November 2023 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) say the hub will be ‘dedicated to supporting CleanTech and sustainable startups within the leisure marine and yachting industries.’

The Innovation Hub will serve as a centre for collaboration, education, and networking,
bringing together investors, industry experts, and innovators passionate about shaping a more
sustainable maritime sector.

There will be space for ten startups and Yachting Ventures will select those chosen to participate.

Yachting Ventures is a global startup hub for the leisure marine and yachting industries, providing the network, education, and opportunities that founders need to scale and raise investment.
