Themed as 'Get aboard to a new life', China (Xiamen) International Boat Show (CXIBS) 2012 will kick off at Xiamen Marina from second to 5th November and will bring you a boat-featured visual feast.

CXIBS has successfully joined the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers (IFBSO) in April 2012. It follows Shanghai which gained membership in 2008 to be the second in China, and follows Dubai, Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, and South Korea to be the sixth member of IFBSO in Asia; and also stands as one of the youngest exhibitions in IFBSO.

Thanks to the successes of the previous four shows, the fame of CXIBS has been gradually increased with more exhibitors participating. To meet to the current situation, the Organizing Committee has expanded the size of the show by increasing the land booths by 23%. Meanwhile, 351 new yacht berths in Xiamen Marina will be officially put into use during this CXIBS. This is unprecedented for a domestic boat show, therefore earns its tagline of the 'No. 1 Water-based Boat Show'.

During the show, the Organizing Committee will invite people from across the country and experts from home and abroad to participate in the show. The Organizing Committee will invite VVIP clients to participate in related Yacht Trials, Sailing Boat Competitions, Celebrity Receptions and other supporting activities, with an view to strengthening the communication between exhibitors and VVIP clients, and of promoting the yacht industry through educating these high-end consumers in the ocean leisure lifestyle.
