New Nautical Business Networking Event for 2017 


With new exhibitor space in short supply, Ilirija has created Biograd B2B, a Nautical Business Networking Event allowing business visitors to participate in the Biograd Boat Show without an exhibition stand.  Biograd B2B participants register their business and arrange meetings, while networking through social events, and an extensive Congress Program, which includes the Croatian Nautical Forum run by the Croatian Chamber of Economy. For more information go to www.biogradb2b.com
Vessel premieres - The list of premiere boats is being compiled and is available via Drop Box at journalist’s request https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zcse2dpf2qt6ru6/AABjYisk1s9xiv1SGJ9283Gta?dl=0

The entertainment program as usual will feature many live music performances including Neno Belan headlining the Saturday Open Party with a fireworks spectacle by Mirnovec, which will promote their Fun Park in Biograd, which will be open during the days of the show, offering a total family experience in Biorgad.
Regattas  - as usual there are many regattas during the show, with the BBS regatta open to the public, while the Samobor regatta continues to grow, and more than 450 participants will finish Offshore Challenge  during the show.

 


After 18 straight record shows, the Biograd Boat Show has firmly established itself as Central Europe's in-water show, with the most exhibitors and vessels on the Adriatic.

 
The key to the show's success is the unique atmosphere in the intimate setting of Biograd and the impressive facilities and management of Ilirija d.d. which include Marina Kornati, Ilirija hotels, restaurants, and entertainment facilities. 


With more than 300 exhibitors and 300 vessels, this show is unique, as sunset marks the end of the exhibition day and the beginning of an on-site evening program offering great food and live entertainment each night, continuing into the town centre until the late hours.  Also, many side events take place attracting locals as well as many affluent visitors from Central Europe that make a holiday of the event.

MARINA KORNATI

 

Having recognized the exceptional potential of Biograd na Moru as a nautical town in the vicinity of Kornati archipelago, ILIRIJA d.d. built the first nautical harbor in Croatia back in 1974, the today's hotel harbor called Kornati, from which the nautical tourism started to develop systematically along the Adriatic coast. It also procured the first own charter fleet of 40 ELAN vessels, thus rightfully assuming the title of a pioneer of nautical tourism and turning the town of Biograd into the cradle of nautical tourism.

With the total sea area (maritime zone) of 91 912 m2 and the land area of 39 688 m2, today's marina Kornati is certainly one of the

largest nautical harbors in the Zadar County and the only real driver of nautical tourism development at Biograd Riviera which, thanks to the boating potentials of the city itself and the vision and courage of ILIRIJA d.d., enabled Biograd not only to become the yachting city, but also the center for development of nautical tourism.

The maritime zone annually hosts more than 40 domestic and international regattas of all classes and over 30 flotillas, which are attended by up to 10,000 sailors from around the world. Therefore, the marina Kornati and Biograd na Moru rightly and proudly deserve to wear the title of not only a nautical, but also a regatta center of Northern Dalmatia

Marina has retained its status of the leading charter center in Croatia with over 300 charter boats owned by 12 charter companies operating within the marina and selling the world's leading manufacturers' vessels, in addition to their charter business.
