Collaboration between the Vice-Presidency, IDI and AENIB will facilitate the participation of the Balearic nautical companies in the Palma International Boat Show.
Vice-President and Minister of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory, Juan Pedro Yllanes, and President of the Association of Nautical Companies in the Balearic Islands (AENIB), Jaume Vaquer, signed this morning a collaboration agreement between the Association and the Institute for Business Innovation of the Balearic Islands (IDI) to promote the participation of member companies in the next edition of the Palma International Boat Show.
The Managing Director of IDI, Mariona Luis, also attended the renewal of this agreement, which aims to promote and support the traditional business network of the nautical sector.
Thus, as stipulated in the agreement, companies associated with AENIB will have a discount on the participation fee for the show. In return, they will promote and give visibility to the event through publicizing it in national and international channels.
Vice-President Yllanes stressed the importance of collaboration between the Administration and the private sector, which "has allowed the growth of an event like the boat show, which has become a point of reference for the sector internationally". Yllanes recalled that "AENIB has always had a very important role in the Palma International Boat Show, since among the associated companies there are some that founded the show almost 40 years ago and many of them have participated in each edition".
For his part, Jaume Vaquer, the president of AENIB, said that "the PIBS is a key event for the Balearic nautical sector, as it projects our archipelago as a nautical destination beyond comparison in the Mediterranean. For our companies it is an excellent opportunity to show the world the quality of nautical services and products in the Balearic Islands, which attract thousands of customers from around the world every year, making the nautical sector one of the pillars of the economy of the islands and a very important generator of wealth and employment".
The Association of Nautical Companies in the Balearic Islands (AENIB) consists of more than a hundred companies from the sector in the Islands, representing very diverse activities among its members, such as construction and maintenance of boats, sales and brokerage, charter, nautical training or refit and repair. Founded in 1982, it is the oldest business association and a point of reference in the Balearic nautical sector, and is in turn integrated into ANEN (National Association of Nautical Companies), which represents virtually the entire industrial and entrepreneurial side of the pleasure boat sector in Spain.
Palma International Boat Show is organized by IDI, an entity under the Vice-Presidency and Ministry of Energy Transition, Productive Sectors and Democratic Memory, and the Balearic Yacht Brokers Association (BYBA). Last edition counted with the participation of 276 exhibitors and more than 32,000 visitors.
