The leading international boating, nautical and water sports festival, boot Düsseldorf, which is celebrating its 50 installment this year, will host a large presentation of Croatian nautical tourism this week. 

Last year almost 2000 exhibitors were present at the fair, which drew almost a quarter of a million visitors and around 2000 journalists from almost 50 countries of the world, and this year it is expected that all those numbers will increase. So, it’s obvious that Croatia has to be present for such an event, especially since we are considered to be one of the top destinations for nautical tourism in Europe (but also worldwide). Croatian tourist board director Kristjan Stanišić believes that it is an aspect of Croatian tourism that is adequately promoted, both for the periods of high season, but also for the pre- and post-season time. To support the Croatian nautical tourism, the Board has backed the large online advertising campaign in 9 of the largest markets: Germany, Austria, Great Britain, Czechia, Poland, Italy, Sweden, France and Slovenia. 

At the boot fair numerous Croatian companies and tourist boards will be present: Split-Dalmatia and Šibenin-Knin county Tourist Boards, Croatia Yachting, Marina Hramina, Marina Veruda, Angelina Tours, Ultra Sailing, Burin Yacht Charter, Offshore Boote, D-Marin group and Denebola Charter + Anamore Yachting. As always, Croatian stand on the fair will be a very hospitable place, where the partners will be able to spend quality time tasting Croatian wine, cheeses and other local delicacies. 

After this fair, major fairs will be held in Austrian Tulln in March, and Interboot in German Friedrichshafen in September, and Croatian tourist board will also organise the presence of major Croatian nautical tourism actors in those fairs. 

Nautical tourism is an important part of the overall Croatian tourism, as studies show that nautical guests coming to Croatia on average have a larger budget, spend more money while in Croatia and stay longer than an average tourist.
