Wednesday marks the start of South Korea's largest marine industry event, the "2010 Korea International Boat Show," held at Jeongok Marina, Hwaseong City, and Tando Port, Ansan City, in Gyeonggi Province until June 13.

The event also parallels with the beginning of Korea Match Cup, Stage 3 of the 2010 ISAF World Match Racing (WMRT).

The Korea International Boat Show, hosted by Gyeonggi Province, will see the participation of 228 local and foreign boat and yacht manufacturers as exhibitors, along with 221 overseas investors and buyers.

Marking its third anniversary this year, the show will offer visitors a variety of hands-on experience programs such as boat and yacht sailing as well as canoe, kayak and dingy yacht riding. In addition, international conferences, export consulting sessions for overseas buyers and meetings with investors will take place during the event.

With the event, the local government of Gyeonggi Province ambitiously aims to nurture the marine leisure industry, making it a future growth driver not only for the region but for the entire nation.
