A Brighter Future for Boating
The Biograd Boat Show made its biggest gains in the aftermath of the global financial crisis, growing from a minor regional show to an international show that brought the Adriatic boating region to the world stage. This was done by optimizing Ilirija’s nautical and hospitality assets, and creating attractively priced options for exhibitors and visitors resulting in long-term success. In 2022; Ilirija plans to build in its successes to improve its important role in setting a course for a brighter future for boating on the Adriatic.
This year’s Biograd Boat Show has sold out its exhibition space and will be held during a very strong boating market, where demand for boats throughout Europe is very high and the supply is tightening. With delivery dates for new boats getting longer and longer, this is the best opportunity to see the largest selection of boats in the region and to secure the best delivery terms and prices.
There will be numerous World and Croatian premieres of vessels, and plenty of equipment and accessories that can be purchased directly, as well as many demonstrations of new products. The show is also known for its gastro and entertainment offerings with good food served in the restaurants, selected artisan food vendors at the Festival of Authenticity, as well as an entertainment program each night after sunset.
Although all exhibition space is sold out, nautical businesses can still participate by registering on the Biograd B2B business to business platform, and have full access to the show and an online Biograd B2B Directory, where they can present their products and services to other participants and schedule meetings in advance.
