The stage is set and the waters await! Get ready as Abu Dhabi gears up for the highly anticipated fifth edition of the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show (ADIBS). ADNEC Group is set to host this prestigious event from November 9 to 12 at ADNEC Marina, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in Al Dhafra Region, and in strategic partnership with Abu Dhabi Maritime.
