Exhibitor space at the 2017 Biograd Boat Show in southern Croatia has completely sold out, according to event organiser Ilirija d.d.

Central Europe’s biggest in-water show will be held in Marina Kornati in the resort town of Biograd from October 19-22. More than 300 exhibitors will be in attendance with around 300 vessels on display.

For those without an exhibitor stand, Ilirija d.d. has launched Biograd B2B – a new netowrking event that allows business visitors to participate in the show through meetings with a number of participating companies.

Subsidised by the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, it will allow them to get an overview of the Croatian boating market and network through social events. Registration is just over €30 and includes pass, refreshments, dinner and entertainment.

With exhibitor space in short supply, Ilirija d.d. has also added an extra 1,000sq m of space near the entrance to Hall C to provide space for some exhibitors on the long waiting list. Floating exhibition tents will also be added to accommodate additional exhibitors on water. The pontoon bridge joining the north and west marinas will be doubled in width, while new congress facilities will be added.

Now in its 19th year, the Biograd Boat Show has developed a strong reputation throughout Central Europe and attracts many visitors from neighbouring countries.
