RIBEX sponsored by Suzuki
From today's RIBEX press release:
"We are delighted to be associated with this key maritime event, one which represents the most successful sector of the powerboat market not only here in the UK, but in many territories around the world", so said Richard Whittaker, Suzuki Marine Sales and Marketing Manager, concerning RIBEX - the show dedicated to the ever expanding international RIB market.
The sponsoring of RIBEX 2007 and the subsequent two years up to 2009 by Suzuki Marine, has provided a very positive uplift and a tremendous vote of confidence to an already successful show which is now in its 9th year. A show which has more than stayed the test of time along with the market sector it represents. Indeed, the RIB market in general continues to be the envy of the British and European boating industry thanks to the sustained growth it has enjoyed now for some 12 years or so.
The success of RIBEX, not only is attributable to the strength of the market itself but also the fact that the show remains unique on several important counts. Firstly, it truly is a show, not just a static exhibition. 'A county show on water' is how some have described it - with its engaging displays and interactive content, it remains the only show in the world dedicated entirely to the RIB market. And whilst it has been suggested by some that the introducing of non-RIB related products might be an interesting option to pursue, the show's organisers have resisted such a move on the basis that the show's purist, 'non-diluted' nature is arguably one of its greatest attributes.
