Boat and fitting manufacturers, as well as water sports and service providers, are exhibiting their wares at the event.

The event not only provides a trading platform for businesses, but it also hosts a camping and water sports carnival for locals and visitors.

The expo includes two exclusive display areas for camping and e-sports hotels.

A water sports carnival, a signature event of the lifestyle show, includes electric surfboard water shows, paddle yoga performances, and surfing and skateboarding experiences to enhance the experience of participants.

Visitors were briefed on advanced technologies applied in the hospitality industry.

DCH Boats, based in Shenzhen, is participating at the expo for the second time.

"It's a fantastic platform, and we're bringing three new boats to the expo this time," said Zhu Xiaoyu, a company representative.

A deal was signed at the expo in 2021 between the company and a purchaser.

"This time, we're coming with even higher expectations, and we're excited to show our latest boats at the expo," Zhu said.

"The domestic boat tourism market and boat sales are recovering faster than we anticipated, and business is expected to be better by the end of this year compared with before COVID-19," she added.
