Salón Náutico Internacional de Barcelona

Trade fair/Congress

The Salón Náutico Internacional de Barcelona (Barcelona International Boat Show), organized by Fira de Barcelona with the collaboration of the National Association of Nautical Companies (ANEN), exhibits the largest and most varied commercial offer in Spain in nautical sports and recreation. This show is the best commercial showcase of Spanish nautical with the presence of the main national and international brands, and is consolidated as the largest professional platform in the sector.

The Boat Show was born in 1962 and is a founding member since that year of the International Federation Boat Show Organizers (IFBSO). For many years the event was held in the pavilions of Fira Barcelona but being Barcelona a city with sea and marinas, the transfer of the fair by the sea seemed logical.

The 58th edition of the Salón Náutico Internacional de Barcelona (2019)

In the 2019 edition, a 7% growth has been achieved compared to 2018. The Nautical Show will have new brands this year, and will have a total of 290 exhibitors and more than 700 boats, of which 180 can be seen in the floating exhibition: with 23 catamarans and 20 light and sport sailing boats, the Barcelona Boat Show presents the largest offer of this type of boats in Spain and one of the most important in Europe. In addition, ten sailboats nominated for the prestigious European Yacht of the Year award will be present.

Sustainable navigation

The sustainability of the nautical industry is one of the present and future challenges that the sector has to face. On the day ‘Let's take care of the sea. Towards sustainability ', the impact of nautical activity and the measures that can be implemented to minimize the presence of waste in seas and oceans will be discussed. The Decalogue for a Sustainable Nautical will also be presented, will have the presence of hybrid and solar vessels, will announce innovations to collect underwater micro plastics and will launch products made from recycled materials. As an event, the Boat Show will also take measures to reduce the environmental impact.
