The Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) will join its fellow elite local, regional, and international entities at Dubai International Boat Show 2019, to be held next week in Dubai, UAE. The event will take place from February 26 to March 2, at the Dubai Water Channel.
DMCA attendance will form part of its ongoing efforts to connect with local and international maritime cluster leaders to actively engage in the sharing of the best industry practices and sustain the discussions on the latest maritime innovations. Tasked to build a secure and sustainable maritime sector in Dubai, one of the world’s most competitive, comprehensive, and attractive maritime capitals, said a statement from the organization.
DMCA has revealed its intention to participate in its three pavilions focusing on the review of smart solutions and mobile services advantages, as well as registration and licensing. As part of a strategy to provide services easily, quickly and efficiently to maximize customer happiness.
During the event, the DMCA is also expected to highlight its smart transformation and sustainability initiatives. The authority will feature its range of interactive smart solutions, e-services, and other innovative applications developed to enhance Dubai’s global competitiveness.
The timely showcasing of DMCA’s cutting-edge apps and other intelligent services will coincide with the celebration of the UAE Innovation Month 2019 under the theme ‘Innovation Starts With You’.
E-services and smart solutions are critical to building a strong technological infrastructure capable of supporting the future growth of Dubai and the UAE.
Amer Ali, executive director of DMCA, said that joining the boat show again will complement the authority’s mission to promote innovation and smart transformation for a sustainable and developed local maritime sector, an industry vital to Dubai’s economic diversification.
He reiterated the importance of completing all required tests before a license is directly, quickly, and efficiently issued to all kinds of vessels during the upcoming boat show.
He added: “We look forward to unveiling our latest smart solutions and innovative services in the event. These solutions and services play a critical role in ensuring that Dubai is able to keep up with emerging global maritime trends and meet the requirements of the 21st century and beyond.”
Moreover ‘Dubai Sea’ is going to be another highlight. This initiative was launched to promote maritime leisure activities, among the key pillars of the emirate’s tourism sector, in line with Dubai Maritime Sector Strategy.
Under the Strategy, the Dubai Government is working towards establishing modern tourism facilities and creating new jobs within the maritime leisure segment in the hope of developing, organizing, and strengthening the local maritime sector and enhancing Dubai’s international maritime status.
‘Dubai Sea’ supports, develops, and coordinates all relevant activities in Dubai to ensure enhanced experience coupled with other programs expediting the registration process and the issuance of licenses and sailing permits. The DMCA has also developed key initiatives to identify resting places and locations of marinas operating in the emirate, oversee the operations of floating restaurants and the activities of all types of yachts in Dubai, and collaborate with leasing maritime companies.
