The Palma International Boat Show opens its doors today and can be visited until June 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., at The Moll Vell in Palma. It is the first on-site boat show in Europe after more than a year of global pandemic. It will once again mark the start of the Mediterranean yachting season, also demonstrating the economic reactivation of a sector considered strategic for the economy of the Balearic Islands.
The Palma Boat Show is organized by the Balearic Institute for Business Innovation (IDI), under the direction of the Vice Presidency and the Regional Ministry of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory as well as Balearic yacht brokers association (BYBA).
This year, the Palma International Boat Show will have 227 exhibitors and more than 185 boats at sea, in more than 80,000 square meters of exhibition grounds.
An offer that consolidates PIBS as one of the most favorite nautical destination in Europe
The Palma International Boat Show presents new boats and nautical equipment on a global scale. Exhibitors will take advantage of the Palma event to present their offer in person after several months of doing business virtually.
All the world market leaders are represented in Palma and present new products and services for the first time. The PIBS will have a direct presentation of many shipyards, which have chosen the event to return to international trade shows after the pandemic and which contribute to consolidate Palma as a preferred destination for pleasure boating and the professional nautical industry.
The fair again includes the Palma Superyacht Show, the exhibition of large yachts with lengths over 24 meters and a new Refit&Repair space designed specifically for boating professionals.
The Refit Zone, now in its fourth year, will include 24 companies present innovative products and services.
