Dubai Boat Show

The Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS), the leading marine leisure show in the Middle East, has been rescheduled, for a second time, to March 2021.

The event at Dubai Harbour was originally set to be held in March this year and was subsequently moved to November 24-28. It will now take place from March 9-13, 2021.

An official statement made by organisers Dubai World Trade Centre reads as follows:

“Following close consultation with Dubai Harbour and Dubai International Boat Show stakeholders, Dubai World Trade Centre shall reschedule Dubai International Boat Show to March 2021, when Dubai Harbour will be fully operational to offer the most seamless marina lifestyle experience to all international event participants, yacht owners and residents.”

Dubai Harbour Marina


Dubai Harbour, a luxurious new waterfront development, has just welcomed its first two yachts into the marina. The venue will remain the host for the next and future editions of DIBS.

Built on reclaimed land, and located between Bluewaters Island and Palm Jumeirah, the marina covers an area of almost 2 million square metres, and will be the Middle East’s biggest marina.
