The Workboats Middle East exhibition 2008 has highlighted the growing demand for water transport. Waterfront developments such as Dubai's Palms and Ras Al Khaimah’s Al Marjan Island are set to turn the region into the world's biggest market for water buses and small passenger ferries.
Regional demand for fast water vessels carrying between eight and up to 300 passengers could exceed 400 vessels over the next ten years. As well as transport for resort guests and residents of luxury villas and apartments, water buses of varying sizes will be needed to ferry workers to and from their jobs on the Palm and island developments.
The Workboats Middle East exhibition and conference features more than 100 key suppliers from around the globe as the region has become a major centre for the workboat industry with its offshore land reclamation developments
