First of all, I would like to sincerely thank you for your trust and long-standing cooperation. There is no doubt that, due to your esteemed participation, INTERNAUTICA Boat Show has become the most popular and sea-friendly boat show on the Adriatic coast, which enables exhibitors to get in touch with the motivated audience and also bringing to the venue many potential buyers.
INTERNAUTICA is a trade show dedicated to present a wide range of achievements in the field of modern nautical industry. Designers, marine producers, engineers, agents and others gathered at such an event certainly want to exchange their expertise while the exhibitors have a unique opportunity to add the competitive and strategic advantage to their business.
According to the misunderstandings and misleading information that has recently been published regarding the organization of the second nautical event, which should take place in Portorož at the same time as INTERNAUTICA, due to the undeniable fact that the Slovenian coast can not host at the same time two nautical fairs, in particular for the benefit of the nautical industry and exhibitors, and, last but not least, because of the international reputation of INTERNAUTICA, we have decided that this year INTERNAUTICEA will not be organized on the Slovenian coast!
We will rather invest our energy and time to prepare the INTERNAUTICA 2020 international boat show, which will ensure the continuity of the traditional serious high-end event, supporting the development of quality nautical business on the Adriatic.
We do not find acceptable copying the concept and content of INTERNAUTICA, the same applies to the choice of the date of the event, which is the same as the traditional term of INTERNAUTICA. This is an obvious example of unethical business practice, which is sadly nothing new …
The fact is that the current location with the abandonment of hospitality for the 23 years old international Boat Show, did a great deal of damage to itself and of course indirectly to the nautical industry, which, due to the uncertain situation have a problem to decide how to react to the confusion that could have been caused by two simultaneous nautical events on our coast.
INTERNAUTICA has been aiming for quality of service for years, and it is struggling to remain at the forefront of the boat shows, providing partners and exhibitors with good business results and great media exposure. By deciding to discontinue the 23-year-long tradition of organizing a professional Boat Show, we want to preserve the international reputation of INTERNAUTICA in accordance with business ethics and respecting the mechanisms of business integrity, to remain loyal to our beliefs and principles. In addition to all of this, we want to protect our business partners, exhibitors and visitors against the negative impact of the mentioned situation.
We will do our best to make it easy for everyone deciding to continue cooperation with INTERNAUTICA in 2020. We will take care to arrange new exciting business opportunities, and above all prepare a professional nautical event that will ensure even better sales and marketing results to all our partners and exhibitors.
