Croatia Fact-Finding Mission
Dubrovnik, Split, Trogir and Biograd
October 14–20, 2018
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! Only six spots remain!
Join the NMMA, Croatian Boating Industry Association and the US Commercial Service for a week-long fact-finding mission to learn firsthand about the growing boating market in Croatia. During this trip, we’ll travel as a small group to explore potential business opportunities and growth areas for our industry in key areas of Croatia. We will focus on gathering information on new projects, new contacts and new opportunities, in addition to networking with industry stakeholders and potential customers.
The trip includes all activities detailed on the itinerary including a full day at the Biograd International Boat Show, considered to be Croatia’s premier boating event. Attendance also includes participation in Biograd B2B, a nautical business networking event held during the show, at no extra cost to you.
Croatia’s economic growth since its independence and accession to the European Union in 2013 has created steady growth for the country and an increased demand for recreational boats and marine equipment.
With what is arguably one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, Croatia offers great opportunities for marine businesses. Boat ownership is on the rise as is access to financing and leasing and the number of boats in charter. This increase in demand for boats has not only boosted imports but also local production and marina development; creating opportunities for both boat builders and equipment/component manufacturers alike. Currently, about 90 percent of raw materials and boat equipment for production are imported.
