Live from Qatar: Benetti positive about the potential of the region

New-Build Events

Benetti Yachts Middle East is exhibiting for the second year at the Qatar International Boat Show. “I am happy to be here again. Actually I am very impressed by the development. I think it has double the size and I think even clients are more aware of this event. It is a good step forward”, Nabil El Jammal says.

Last year, Benetti commented that they had some very important leads coming from this region. “This year I am again meeting with some very interesting clients. Being present at this show is probably one of the best ways to expose our brand to this market”.

Looking at the region, Nabil is positive about the potential of the region as a whole. “I am receiving request from all over the GCC countries, and not just the GCC. Lebanon and Turkey as well. There isn’t one market that is actually standing out”.

Although Benetti does not have a boat at the show this year, that could change in the future. “This year, we did not have a boat in the region, however, I hope to have a yacht here next year. I know that the marina is being expanded, and that they are working on the draft, so hopefully next year we will have something at the show. Either way, we will definitely be back in 2015”.
