This year's Croatia Charter Expo surpassed all previous ones in terms of success. The need for foreign and domestic charter companies, agencies, and charter services for this gathering is evidenced by the participation of business entities from 30 countries around the world.
Over 100 registered yacht charter companies (which directly represent more than 3,000 active charter vessels, of which 1,800 are based in Croatia, representing two-thirds of the Croatian charter fleet as the strongest in the world), agents, and charter services, with over 400 accredited participants, turned this exclusive two-day business event into the largest global B2B gathering within the nautical show.
The business segment of the Biograd Boat Show was organized through an online "B2B" platform for business networking. More than 800 confirmed meetings were arranged through the B2B platform indicating the increasing importance of networking with business partners.
In addition to domestic representatives, the B2B program was attended by representatives from Austria, Slovenia, Poland, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Serbia, Great Britain, Malta, Andorra, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Greece, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, Mexico, USA, Bahamas, Australia, etc.
Announcements from the Croatia Charter Expo confirm that nautical tourism, as Croatia's most elite product, will, according to the participants, be Croatia's trump card in the forthcoming tourist season.
We thank you, for such a nice welcome in Croatia Charter Expo 2019.
Everything was organized at a high level. We enjoyed many lectures and new acquaintances.
See you again next year
Adventure Charter Company is extremely pleased with the organization of this year's Boat Show in Biograd, especially its B2B part that we participated in. We believe that organization of this year's Charter Expo event is a great idea, and we recommend it for the next year. Our meetings were productive. The whole atmosphere was comfortable with minimal distraction, for which we are grateful. We would also like to commend the friendly staff and location of the event. We look forward to better media coverage next year and look forward to participating again.
We wish to thank and congratulate the organizers for the excellent organization. The ice has been broken and now it is up to you to grow into the leading charter fair in the region with our help, if necessary. It is important to note that the agents and visitors were delighted with the venue, the ambiance and the event itself. All the best in the further.
Thank you for organizing this much-needed business to business summit of agents and charter companies. Our experience is excellent. All meetings were organized according to schedule, held with full care and seriousness, so we are very pleased with the results. Location and time of the Croatia Charter Expo is in perfect convergence with the Biograd boat show, where agents can see the boats they are working with and get on-site information about the boats they are working with.
We are very pleased with the term and location of the Croatia Charter Expo, and we hope that this will not be a one-year event, but that it will continue with even more charter brokers and fleet operators.
We believe that the first Croatia Charter Expo was very well organized and appropriate. This opinion is shared by all exhibitors (at least by those with whom I have spoken to). The timing of the expo is great. Just after the end of the season and at the beginning of the new booking cycle. An ideal time to communicate with the brokers the news and the updates for the next season. Also, the number of registered fleet operators and agents was very satisfying.We have had constructive meetings with quality brokers.
For the next Croatia Charter Expo, we want to attract even more brokers and fleet operators to join us. We, as fleet operators, may offer brokers to transfer our sailboats to the bases after the Biograd Boat Show ends.
Congratulations - we were skeptical, had no expectations, and in the end the organization exceeded our expectations. Super relaxed atmosphere, quality meetings with quality partners, great fun and socializing - just the way it should be.
Looking forward to next year, we will do our best for everyone to hear that this is a great fair and to invite brokers to Biograd next year
We were pleased to participate actively in the first CCE. We believe that choosing an appointment is ideal, either to make a summary of the past season or to resolve any ambiguities with the agencies we work with in direct conversation. We were also able to exchange experiences with the aim of improving the service, and to present novelties for the next season, from recently issued price lists to changes in the fleet. At the same time, we want to contribute to the constant development of the charter industry. We were particularly pleased with the involvement of B2B charter participants and agents in the after-events, where we could continue to socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. We were not surprised by their desire to repeat everything next year.
We were extremely pleased with the organization and Charter Expo service. We were also happy with the business part - both days were filled with meetings and we can say that Expo was successful and productive. Greetings and a nice day to you all Jadranka yachting team !! :)
The success of a B2B workshop is beyond expectations. Our position is that everything was done in one place and at the right time.
Thank you for the excellent organization and effort and for the successful (hopefully one of many) Croatia Charter Expo.
We were pleased to help out with the organization of the first Croatia Charter Expo at the 21st Biograd Boat Show, as a member of the working group. It was not easy, but all the efforts paid off. We would like to thank the organizing committee for doing such a great job and for running everything so smoothly. For preparing good education seminars and discussion panels that are all relevant to the charter industry in Croatia and for delicious meals and a great party. We also greatly appreciate the arrival of all brokers and are happy to report we have had some productive and hopefully beneficial meetings for our charter business. The standards are set high for next year and we expect an even greater event.
Thank you for everything, for the excellent organization, excellent atmosphere and excellent weather.
It has been both a pleasure and benefit to participate, all the brokers and partners we talked to were very satisfied and for few days „charter business„ was number one topic in Croatia.
I speak on behalf of our company but also on behalf of Croatian Charter Association, this was a success, or as we would put it „Prvo pa muško„
We were pleased to participate in this year's edition of the Croatia Charter Expo. Biograd has proven to be a great location for an event like this. Unlike other fairs, the great advantage here is that everything is "at hand" and that we have finely balanced work-to-leisure ratio. For the first edition of the fair, we believe that the presence of charter brokers was very good, and the program of the Expo is on the high level, because the workshops and panels indeed covered different current topics.
For us as a company, the fair was useful, which is ultimately the most important. We meet faces we normally work with and discussed the further plans. We also met some new partners we have yet to start working with. All praises to the organization and to all those who have given the pain to make it all successful.
Thank you and congratulations on a great project. We believe in the necessity of this project and that it needs to be developed for the future. Although this this was the first Croatia Charter Expo, one can see the potential. Also, we heard only positive comments in internal conversations with our colleagues. For the next year we plan to prepare better and get the most out of CCE.
We wish you a happy and successful organization of the next CCE.
We can say that the fair was very successful and everything was well organized. We will definitely be in touch and we sincerely hope to see you again in 2020.
It was our pleasure to participate in the first B2B Croatia Charter Expo! I would like to thank the organisers for this excellent idea to organise such an event as a part of the Biograd Boat Show and also for a great effort put in by the project coordinator. The whole project was organised and executed in a very professional manner and in a comfortable environment. We are very satisfied with the meetings and brokers which have responded to the invitation to visit the exhibitors.
Now that our impressions have subsided, let's just say thank you for everything. It was great and quite productive. We want to thank you for the wonderful and well-organized Croatia Charter Expo 2019 in Biograd. Considering that this is the first year, we are very pleased with the response of the brokers and the number of meetings we had.
We especially liked the equal appearance and size of the booths, and that only Croatian charter companies were invited. We were able to show brokers first-hand, on “our territory" our bases or boats exhibited at the Biograd Boat Show. For the future we can propose to the visiting brokers a transfer of exhibited boats back to our bases after the Boat Show finishes. We believe that future turnout of brokers, and fleet operators will be even greater.
Greetings and see you next.
Dear hosts of the first Croatia Charter Expo in Biograd, we want to thank you for organizing a pleasant environment for meetings with our partners. During the two days we spent in Hall D, just across the Marina Kornati in Biograd, we had everything we needed: a booth where our partners could easily find us, and a central area with coffee and food for a coffee break, and a conference hall with the interesting speakers.
Brokers that came from all over Europe were really happy with free accommodation, sunny weather, and beautiful Biograd. They promised to come back again.
Charter Expo B2B was very relaxed and yet demanding. People full of positive energy, which was felt in the air.
Thanks to Croatia Charter Expo, I became even more aware of the value of my Adria Supply project. I really liked meeting B2B colleagues and potential partners. I've already started working with some!
I feel extremely fortunate, proud and honored to have been part of this largest Central European nautical fair, which Adria Supply has featured on stands, commercials, and promo videos on all video walls.
I would like to thank the organizers, Mrs. Natasha Jakovljev and Mr. Robert Pirović, and especially Mr. Milan Šangulin, who recognized the great potential and added value for all Charter users. One big THANK YOU, keep up the great work and see you through the year!
The Biograd Boat show is the perfect place and date for a B2B charter expo. It is early enough for next season and a place where you can easily meet with all key players in the charter market. We had many successful meetings and benefits from the show. Here in one place, and in one charming, intimate town (Biograd), besides meetings, you can see all the best and newest products on the Yachting market like; yachts, equipment, technology, services and much more. Also, in your free time, Biograd offers many possibilities for after-show relaxing and networking (restaurants, nice hotels, sponsored parties with entertainment etc.). I believe and hope in next years that this will best charter expo in Europe. It is for sure the best value for money you can get in yachting world. We enjoy very much see you next year, all the best to organiser!!!
We enjoyed B2B as we had the chance to see some long-term business partners as well as to meet some new ones that we hope to cooperate in future to provide a better service for our guests. The whole show was very well organized and Hall D for B2B was well located and all the staff on site was helpful and professional. It was also a great couple of sunny days at the Expo to see various boats from fleet operators and we hope to see you again next year!
It was a very nice experience meeting up with partners at sea side locations. Good organisation from the Ilirija team, and a lot of extra divers activities.
The combination of Charter Expo and Boat Show was in our opinion a great success!
We are very interested in participating again next year.
I really enjoyed the B2B event Croatia Charter Expo 2019 as I had the opportunity to meet some already existing business partners “in real life” and also to get to know some new fleet operators and suppliers of the charter sector that were extremely helpful and interesting for my company. The show was very well organized, the location and facilities were great, the entertainment program interesting and your staff simply awesome. Thank you very much again for this opportunity and looking forward to the new editions!
It was a pleasure to be part of the Croatia Charter Expo. Organization was on a high level and the atmosphere among all participants was great so we are looking forward to the next year for sure
We are very glad you have decided to organize this event in Biograd, during the Biograd Boat Show. It only makes sense to further develop and enrich this story with such a great event.
Already in its first year Croatia Charter Expo promises to be a great event, and I look forward to participating again, and wish you all the best in future business.
We were pleased to participate in the Croatia Charter Expo, and congratulations on your excellent organization!
The number of exhibitors was very manageable and most of them were from Biograd. I was there for the reason that I wanted to meet a certain exhibitor who I will not meet at the ICE. In combination with the boat show this is certainly a good idea.
We were left pleasantly surprised by the event itself. The atmosphere was positive and "homey". I believe that the agents that were present could do a lot of work in those two days.
In case that the number of participants increases, our recommendation is to extend the event for a day more, so we will be able to attend all scheduled meetings.
Once again, all the compliments and congratulations to the entire organization.
I'm glad that we participated in Croatia Charter Expo 2019 in Biograd, which exceeded our expectations. All compliments to organisational team which made this event go smoothly. All the arranged meetings we had, took place in a great and comfortable space concept, especially referring to B2B lounge area. I believe that CCE is a fantastic concept for charter business improvement and that by the time it would become the leading event for charter in Croatia. I'm looking forward to seeing you next year.
It was a great pleasure to participate and meet some of the leading charter companies in the Adriatic. Charter Expo was a very interesting and enjoyable experience where as a broker I had the opportunity to personally meet representatives of charter companies with whom I might not have the opportunity or time to talk during the boat show. The exchange of experiences and tips can help everyone in the business, especially to the brokers that these experiences help to improve their business and adapt to the rapid changes in the market.
A big thank you to the organizers and everyone involved.
We really, really enjoyed the show. The Croatia Charter Expo was the best organised and most useful boat event that we have attended, and we will definitely be back there next year. Everything was exceptionally well arranged, and it was fantastic that we could meet with all the best charter operators in Croatia without even having to leave the building!
Our team loved the opportunity to meet our important business contacts face-to-face (as they normally only email), and it was a great time of the year to run this event – when we could both sit and review the season just gone, but also get excited about the season ahead.
Being based in Biograd also meant that we were able to sample some Croatian culture whilst we were there, and it was nice to be there alongside the boat show too.
Thanks so much for all your hard work, and as soon as you have dates for 2020, please let us know!
It was really nice in Biograd. Thank you for all your efforts!
We are pleased to have participated at the Croatia Charter Expo organized first time this year in Biograd.
The organization of B2B meetings in Hall D was on a high level, with the possibility to arrange meetings with the fleet operators and charter companies. We highly recommend continuing with the organization of Croatia Charter Expo in future.
Thank you for such nice welcome and hospitality in Biograd!
I would like to thank you for a well-organized fair and a positive atmosphere! It was nice! The Croatia Charter Expo is a particularly interesting event for us brokers. It offers an opportunity that enables new business collaborations, and at the same time enhances the development and quality of existing ones. We are sure that the Croatia Charter Expo will register an increasing number of visitors each year, and we are already booking our place for next year.
t was a great pleasure to participate in the first edition of the Croatia Charter Expo in Biograd. We believe it is an ideal opportunity to meet business partners and, during the Biograd Boat Show, get to know their fleet in part. The entire CCE organization was professional and we felt comfortable during the event.
The atmosphere was both professional and friendly, so in a relaxed environment, we deepened our business relationships with existing partners as well as meeting potential new partners.
Thank you for your very pleasant company and professional organization. It was a pleasure to be a part of this year's edition of the Boat Show, which comes in a whole new look. The service was top notch, from the accommodation to the organization of the whole event. Thanks a lot again for everything and we look forward to seeing you next :)
We would like to thank for inviting us to Croatia Charter Expo in Biograd which we found very professional. It meant a great chance to meet our partners in person, talking to them eye to eye and discuss further business conditions that will help us all to achive better results and improve client satisfaction.
We liked the hall where this event took place. The portal for setting appointments was easy to understand and user friendly. And of course, catering was amazing with plenty of delicious food!
We are looking forward to the CCE 2020 !
It was a pleasure to meeting you again + all other of our long period partners in Biograd!
I appreciate the best organised event and I hope we can count on it next year - it would be very nice : )
Thank you! Marta and Jan
