Notes from Our Exhibitors
"The first time I personally came to Shanghai for the boat show, It was 10 years ago and this is my first time back after 10 years. And it’s unbelievable how much the show has developed and how big and professional it has become. I think it’s really a statement on the interest in boating and how it’s growing in China."

As we value China market very much, CIBS is the best platform for Garmin to showcase our latest technology and products to domestic yacht lovers, and also a bridge that connects industry professionals with users which greatly helps us to build our brand and promote our products effectively.
