The Biograd Boat Show (BBS) was especially created to give an opportunity to nautical tourism to develop efficiently in Croatia and to give the necessary boost to the boating industry. After the success of the 2013 Biograd Boat Show, the organizers have decided to make the 2014 Biograd Boat Show the biggest boat show that has ever been held in Croatia.
This year the number of exhibitors in the show has increased. Seminars in relation to boat maintenance are going to take place during the boat show. Along with that more than hundred second-hand vessels are going to be displayed in the event.
Ever since the Biograd Boat Show became a part of the IFBSO (International Federation of Boat Show Organizers), it has turned into the major boat show held in Central Europe.
The 16th edition of Croatia boat show is going to be held from 23rd October to 26th October, 2014 and around 250 exhibitors are going to participate in the event. An information centre on yacht charter might also represent around five hundred boats at the BBS.
Nada (36 meter long event ship of BBS) is going to offer free tours to the visitors and will be utilized for all kinds of presentations and meetings. The RIB vessels (high speed ones) and semi-submersibles are going to offer free rides as well.
BBS regatta (one-day event), Elan 210 match race, the Austrian Offshore Cruising Championships are some of the regattas that are closely associated with the Biograd Boat Show.
