The 25th edition of the Zagreb Boat Show and the 8th edition of Hotel & Gastroteh, an annual international hotel and restaurant equipment, catering and gastronomy fair, scheduled for February 17-21, are expected to bring together more than 30,000 visitors, a news conference heard last Thursday.

Presenting the two fairs, Zagreb Trade Fair Centre (ZV) director Dina Tomsic said both events would be bigger and better than any previous editions.

The Zagreb Boat Show will be held in four pavilions with an area of over 12,000 square metres and will feature exhibitors from 25 countries and more than 100 vessels.

Hotel & Gastroteh is a unique opportunity for the promotion of producers and traders of the hotel and catering equipment and food and drinks as well as of distributors and other stakeholders in the hotel, restaurant and cafe sector.

By merging the two events, the organisers provided a platform for connecting all exhibitors dedicated to the promotion of the Croatian tourist supply through related topics.

The combination of the compatible fairs will contribute to a higher level of professionalism to the satisfaction of all participants in the field of boating, gastronomy, hotel and catering equipment and to the profiling of Hotel&Gastroteh into the central regional business fair in the hotel, restaurant and cafe sector, it was said at the news conference.
