And next year South Africa will have its own DTI-funded National Pavilion
SABBEX will be exhibiting at the upcoming Miami Boat Show (13 – 17 February) representing South African boat builders and equipment manufacturers and business services. Other South African boat builders with boats at the show include; Xquisite Yachts/Phoenix Marine, Royal Cape Catamarans, Leopard Catamaran, Knysna Yacht Co and Balance Catamarans. This year sets the stage for a Department of Trade and Industry funded National Pavilion in February 2021 when there will be an expanded South African exhibition platform. South African companies interested in exhibiting are asked to contact SABBEX for more details (being a SABBEX member is not a requirement for participation at a National Pavilion).
“We are extremely excited to be awarded a National Pavilion at Miami Boat Show next year. The USA is our key export market and having the dti funding and support for an expanded market presence at this important show next year will be a boost to our boat builders and our marine manufacturers and service companies” said Vanessa Davidson, Manager at SABBEX.
In the meantime, SABBEX will continue to proudly fly the South African flag at this year’s show, with the support of the South African Embassy in Washington DC. Visit Vanessa and Thina at the SABBEX stand at Float 903.
