More than 16,000 people attended last week’s Biograd Boat Show in southern Croatia

The 2018 Biograd Boat Show in southern Croatia closed last Sunday with a record number of visitors, exhibitors and boats on display. Some 16,876 people attended the four-day event in Marina Kornati which, apart from Sunday morning, was blessed with blue skies and t-shirt weather.

With well over 300 registered exhibitors and more than 300 new vessels plus brokerage, the show’s exhibits were said to be better than ever. There was a noticeable increase in luxury motor vessels this year, with dealers reporting strong activity. The Absolute dealer for the region reported multiple sales at the show.

“This is Central Europe’s in-water show and the biggest meeting point for Croatia’s nautical industry, marking the end of the boating season and the start of a new business year,” says event organiser Ilirija d.d.

The Biograd B2B networking event was also extremely popular, attracting more than 400 registered participants. According to Ilirija d.d., the Congress program was the best ever.

Next year’s Biograd Boat Show will be held from October 17-20.
