The Korea International Boat Show 2015 (www.kibs.com), one of the three leading boat shows in Asia, received an award in the exhibition category for the marine leisure industry at “VIP ASIA Awards 2015”, hosted by Global News Network AVING News.

The Korea International Boat Show 2015 is the largest boat show in the country. The event became a member of ICOMIA and acquired various international certifications. It established its position as one of the three leading boat shows in Asia, signing MOUs with boat-related associations from seven countries.



Starting with the first event at Jeongok Marina Port in 2008, the Korea International Boat Show has become the largest marketplace based on eight years of accumulated know-how on hosting a boat show and international and domestic buyer DB. At the event, active business consultations are held, and new products are launched annually. This year, 243 companies ran 1,378 booths, and 35,000 people visited the show. Consultations and contracts worth $1.69 million were exchanged.

The Korea International Boat Show will run for four days from May 19 to 22 next year.

“VIP ASIA Awards 2015”, an awards ceremony that recognizes 100 brands that have brought honor to Asia, was held in the Grand Ballroom at Grand Hyatt Hotel on November 25. Two hundred guests, including those from award-winning companies and related officials, participated in the event.

In particular, this year, the event prepared a video documentary to celebrate the 10th anniversary. The documentary received much attention by delivering on the mega-trends of the global market and keen strategy and know-how of advancing into foreign markets, which were gathered by reports worldwide in the past decade.
