Biograd Boat Show


New dates: The show will run for 5 days from Wednesday, October 21st, until Sunday, October 25th, 2020.


With one month to go, more than 140 exhibitors have registered their participation for this year’s show, showing the optimism in the nautical industry during challenging times. Many more exhibitors are expected as we approach the opening of the show.

The 3 largest exhibitors have registered a total of 28 vessels averaging more than 11m in length.

The largest vessel to be displayed so far is the 20m Elling E 6. https://www.ellingyachting.com/the-elling-motor-yacht-range/157727/elling-e6/

Ilirija d.d. has received full support for the Boat Show from the Zadar County Civil Headquarters, and continues to refine the planning and measures to ensure a safe event. The 22nd Biograd Boat Show is organised by Ilirija d.d, a renowned tourism company from Biograd na Moru. www.ilirijabiograd.com The show has been expanded to 5 days to reduce crowding and to provide extra time to visit the largest in-water show in Central Europe.  As an outdoor, in-water show, with plenty of fresh air and open spaces, it a relatively safe environment to end the boating season and prepare for the next boating year.
Ilirija is monitoring the current epidemiological situation very carefully and will conduct the show according to all public health measures, to ensure the safety of exhibitors and the visitors. Unique to the marine industry, the Biograd Boat Show has hosted 21 record shows, growing every year, even through the dark years of the global financial crisis.  This was possible, as Ilirija was able to optimize its marina, hotels and restaurants to offer a cost effective boat show experience.  A similar effort will be made during this challenging year to ensure the best boat show experience in the region.

The boating season in Croatia has exceeded all expectations after a gloomy, global lockdown.  As a result, exhibitors are surprisingly optimistic, and we expect a good turnout for the show.
The Biograd B2B Business Networking continues to develop as the meeting point for the Croatian nautical industry. Sponsored by the City of Biograd and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the event links nautical businesses through its Business Registry, offers online scheduling of meetings as well as an extensive Congress program and social events.
Biograd B2B  also ncludes the Croatian Charter Expo to be held on the 22nd and 23rd of October, and the Croatian Nautical Days congress event to be held from October 21st to 23rd
