Provide power for the Dubai International Boat Show, the biggest marine and lifestyle experience in the UAE

The Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) is one of the premier events in the Middle East, showcasing new luxury yachts for sale and charter in the Gulf region.

It attracts hundreds of attendees and has more than 450 boats on display. Therefore, the event requires a significant amount of logistical planning and reliable power to run without any issues.

The Arena Group, which hosted the DIBS, needed to power, and cool its 40 by 240mt structure with a complete power and temperature control solution during the month of March – a month where temperatures can reach 30°C.
Planning and coordination with potential contractors and subcontractors was also needed for an event of this magnitude.
