The E70 International Waterway at Boatshow Trade Fair 2016 in Lodz

Last Saturday (November 13th) the Sailing and Water Sports Trade Fair BOATSHOW 2016 in Lodz came to an end. The three-day event was attended by 156 exhibitors from Poland, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Ukraine, and Sweden. Their booths presented luxurious yachts, superfast motorboats, and comfortable houseboats, among others. The BOATSHOW was not short of publications devoted to sailing either.

An important aspect of the BOATSHOW fair was the program of accompanying events, which provided an opportunity for educational presentations, lectures, and workshops, and for local governments and charter companies to present the latest products to instill interest in water tourism. The visitors could also participate in sea shanty concerts in the fair's tavern and discover the latest trends in kayaking, diving, windsurfing, and kitesurfing.

The event enjoyed significant interest, as did the accompanying thematic panels concerning the most fascinating sailing routes in Europe and worldwide, as well as trainings in meteorology, navigation, and marketing.

The fair also featured a promotional booth of the E70 International Waterway, which premiered a new style this year. It presented the tourist values of the waterway connecting Kostrzyn on the Oder with the Vistula Lagoon. The E70 International Waterway booth enjoyed a lot of interest from the visitors, who welcomed the new style of the exhibit with a map of the course of the waterway and a promotional video.
