Biograd Boat Show 18.0|
Croatia's Largest Boat Show and Central Europe's In-water Show
24.07.2016, Biograd, Croatia - Bootsmessen2016
Equipment exhibition Halls Fully Reserved 3 Months in Advance - This year's show is filling up at a record pace, and we expect an 18th straight record show in terms of exhibitors and boats. The level of optimism continues to rise in the local boating industry, and we expect this to be reflected at this year's boat show. The biggest improvement in exhibitor interest comes from dealers of larger motor vessels, as we are finally seeing signs of life in a market that has been cautiously quiet over the years.
Exhibition Hall B Becomes the Home of the Biograd Charter Show- The BCS is designed to present in one place, the yacht charter fleets of the Biograd Boat Show exhibitors, and Croatian yacht charter providers. The show is designed for both Business to Business interaction on Thursday and Friday (20 -21), as well as direct interaction with consumers.
BBS Comes of Age
The Biograd Boat Show turns 18 this year, and visitors can expect to see signs of maturity. Expect to see all available exhibition space booked and the widest range of products on offer to date. The show has become the meeting point for Croatia's nautical industry and marks the end of the boating season, and the beginning of a new nautical business year.
Another Record Show Expected
After 17 years of consecutive growth, another record show is expected. In 2015 a record number of visitors and more than 300 register exhibitors attended from many countries. The event has taken on an international flavor due to the importance of Croatia as a boating destination and the impressive facilities and management of Ilirija d.d. which include Marina Kornati, Ilirija hotels, restaurants, and entertainment facilities. Favorable pricing for all services adds to the leisurely atmosphere, while a pontoon bridge links the main marina with Marina Kornati West, offering a unique and attractive in-water exhibition.
The "Boat Show Experience"
Sunset marks the end of the exhibition day and the beginning of an on-site evening program offering great food and live entertainment each night, continuing into the town centre until the late hours. Also, many side events take place with themes such as business, education, social, culinary, sport and recreation. Known as the "Boat Show Experience", it is the key to the show's success, visible in the eyes of the locals as well as many affluent visitors from Central Europe that make a holiday of the event.
The Gateway for Central European Boaters
More and more, the show attracts visitors and exhibitors from neighboring countries and afar. Many are introduced to Biograd through its world class calendar of events, or as one of the largest yacht charter destinations in the world, or as one of busiest marinas in Croatia. Regardless the number of international visitors to the Biograd Boat Show increases each year.
Biograd Charter Show (BCS)
As Croatia leads the world in bareboat yacht charter, the Biograd Charter Show is an important yearly meeting point for the industry, and takes place in Hall "B". On Thursday and Friday It focuses on Business to Business dealings, while the weekend offers consumers the best opportunity to speak directly with charter providers and to take advantage of special offers. A rich charter congress program for the industry is topped off by a grand Charter Friday Party in the Hall "B" restaurant.
