Biograd Boat Show – an event that yacht charter professionals should not miss

The Biograd Boat Show will take place from October 25th to October 29th, 2023, and this year it celebrates its 25th anniversary, which is not a small thing. This jubilee not only attests to the excellence of the organizers but also to the dedication of the entire yachting community that stands behind it.

Many may not even remember, but the Biograd Boat Show began as a modest event at the Marina Kornati, marking the spring with open doors for yachting enthusiasts. And that was a quarter of a century ago. 
However, the year 2004 was a turning point for the Biograd Boat Show. The fair was moved to October, successfully adapting to the changing needs of the nautical community. And the rest, as they say, is history. 
Year after year, the fair has only experienced exponential growth. Each year, it continued to expand its boundaries, attracting a growing number of exhibitors, visitors, and international partners. 
The Biograd Boat Show has become not only a key venue for showcasing new vessels and innovations in the nautical industry but has also evolved into a symbol of resilience and sustainability
Through challenges such as the global financial crisis and the pandemic, the fair has not only survived but even thrived, introducing new ideas and platforms. 

Croatia Charter Expo – unavoidable event for yacht charter businesses 

Last year's edition of Croatia Charter Expo surpassed all previous editions, and this year's is expected to do the same. 
The participation of representatives from 30 global countries illustrated the growing demand for yacht charter companies, agents, and nautical suppliers for this type of gathering. The event brought together more than 100 companies associated with yacht charter, collectively representing over 3000 active vessels. 
This exclusive two-day event attracted over 400 accredited participants, and the online B2B networking platform recorded over 800 meetings, confirming the significance of this fair for the nautical industry. 
In addition to being held during the Biograd Boat Show, the largest nautical fair in the region, CCE provides an excellent opportunity for business networking with numerous suppliers and investors from the nautical sector. 
Croatia Charter Expo will take place this year on October 25th-26th, and the event will highlight current trends in the industry and provide a quality networking opportunity in preparation for the upcoming nautical season. 

A specialized congress program will be held in Hall D, with the highlight being the "Days of Nautical Tourism" organized by the Croatian Chamber of Economy. The program will cover all aspects of nautical tourism and the industry, featuring interesting speakers who will discuss current topics. 
This is also an opportunity for all nautical charter agents to establish direct contact with yact charter operators and firsthand experience the quality of service in the yacht charter market. Charter agents can secure their spot at this event by registering at the following link
