The Fiumanka Regatta and the BlueGreen Fiumanka Expo in Croatia (on 12-13 June 2015) is renowned for being one of the top Croatian and regional sporting and socializing events. This year, all boats (roughly 200) participating in the races will have the EUSAIR logo displayed on their starting positions and the EUSAIR logo will also cover all regatta materials with the aim of raising the visibility of the Strategy.

The highlight of this year’s events will be launching of the BlueGreen Fiumanka Expo under the slogans “We develop sails of sustainable development”, “Blue and green economy”, and “As you sail – you create”. The concept was developed as a new perspective for Fiumanka and inspired by the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR), for which Croatia holds the rotating chair as of June 2015. The BlueGreen Fiumanka Expo is supported by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia and the European Commission Representation in Croatia.

In line with that, the whole Fiumanka Regatta will be branded with the EUSAIR visual identity elements, for example all the sails and the regatta media and promotional materials will be branded with the EUSAIR logo. Thanks to 3rd European Media Sailing Race (EMRS), organized in cooperation with Croatian Radiotelevision, both events will be enjoying extensive media interest.

The Expo event is an opportunity for the organizations/businesses working on developing blue and green economy, renewable energy and sustainable development, to present their projects and business initiatives. The Expo will be held at the Molo Longo, a favourite coastal promenade of Rijeka citizens. Presentation of projects and business initiatives will be organized in the form of the stall presentations, and all the necessary logistical support will be provided by the organizers. The participants are invited to make their presentations interesting and attractive.
