Biograd Boat Show Biograd na Moru

23. - 27. October 2024 | Nautical fair

Founded in 1999, the Biograd Boat Show has established itself as a central stage for the nautical industry in Croatia and stands out as a key event in the region. Often simply abbreviated as "BBS," the show takes place annually in the picturesque Marina Kornati in Biograd na Moru, a coveted destination for boaters due to the nearby Kornati Archipelago. The event is organized by Ilirija d.d., a company particularly noted for its dedicated trade fair management..

At its core, BBS focuses on presenting technologies, suppliers, and designs in the field of boats, yachts, and ships, primarily serving as an exclusive point of contact for shipyards and their suppliers. The showcased products and services encompass a wide range, from small boats to large yachts, as well as components, equipment, electronics, automation, mechanical parts, raw materials, design, and services for the shipbuilding industry.

In tandem, BBS is not only a product showcase but also a platform for business contacts and network building. The B2B business platform "Biograd B2B" is an integral part of the fair and allows business visitors to navigate Biograd’s B2B company directory, coordinate meetings with relevant companies, and participate in targeted networking events.

The connection to the city of Biograd and the country of Croatia is firmly anchored in both the orientation of the fair and in the accompanying events and congress program. The Biograd Boat Show is embedded in a region characterized by a strong nautical tradition and related tourist offerings, such as boat races and diving schools.

The main visitors and exhibitors of the fair predominantly come from the nautical industry and related sectors, including manufacturers, designers, and suppliers. The fair is also a "must-visit" for professionals from the region, Croatia, and neighboring countries, to gain a comprehensive overview of the trends from the past fiscal year, conclude new business deals, and maintain existing contacts.

Undoubtedly, a highlight of the fair is the "Croatia Charter Expo," a B2B event taking place during BBS, presenting well-maintained used sailboats. Here, exclusive insights and specialized offers are provided for charter companies and those interested.

Biograd na Moru, as the venue, not only adds a scenic backdrop to the fair but also enriches the experience of participants through its abundant local culture and cuisine, which is closely linked with the nautical life. The location is easily accessible via various means of transport, including car and public transport, and also offers numerous accommodation options for visitors.

Overall, the Biograd Boat Show represents a unique platform for business and networking in the nautical industry, embedded in a region known for its strong connection to marine life and shipping.

The Biograd Boat Show will take place on 5 days from Wednesday, 23. October to Sunday, 27. October 2024 in Biograd na Moru.
