The fact that it allows exhibitors to include equipment during live choreographed demonstrations that take place daily in front of a grandstand of event attendees makes it an opportunity that has immense business value. This year, though things are far from the usual due to the global pandemic, we hope to take full advantage of the opportunity by maximising the engagement with key government buyers and influencers. We are very well represented this year with some of our key products installed on boats that will be used for live demo’s during the show. We have three boats built by a leading military boat builder in the UAE, fitted with HamiltonJet WaterJets.
