BOAT, BOATING ACCESSORIES, WATER SPORTS AND CARAVANS SHOW
INTRODUCTION:
In the second half of April, the fifth edition of the Prague boat show, BOATS ON THE WATER & CARAVANS IN PRAGUE 2013,
opened the boating season for all lovers of boats, water, caravans and water sports. The project was initiated based on
requests from boat manufacturers and dealers, members of APL, with the aim of promoting boating in the Czech Republic.
The concept of the show had been inspired by similar exhibitions in Genoa, Barcelona, Cannes, Helsinki and Hamburg. The
concept of this show is unique both in the Czech Republic and Central Europe, especially due to the opportunity for participants to showcase boats within an exhibition area located both on the embankment and on the Vltava River itself in the
very centre of Prague. Between 17 and 21 April, more than one hundred and twenty exhibitors not only from the Czech Republic but also Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, Austria and Spain presented themselves in the area between
the Železniční and Palacký bridges. Visitors had the opportunity to see the latest boat models, ranging from small sports
boats to large marine sailboats and luxurious motor yachts. Due to the growing interest from exhibitors, the organizer extended the exhibition area on the Rašín Embankment by adding the Smíchov beach, located on the opposite riverbank. Visitors were excited about being able to travel between the two riverbanks by ferries that operated free of charge. Another attraction was the opportunity not to only view the boats displayed but also try some of them out.

BOAT, BOATING ACCESSORIES, WATER SPORTS AND CARAVANS SHOW
ACCOMPANYING
PROGRAMME,
hosted by Josef Melen
Hosted boat shows
Every day, hosted boat shows took place as part of the accompanying programme in the entrance area of the exhibition premises, near the Mercedes-Benz gate. The boats were presented to visitors directly on the Vltava
River. In addition to a visual display, details of each boat were provided, focusing on the technical parameters, prices, the supplier and possible use.
TORNADO – an extreme catamaran race
Once again this year, viewers could watch two Tornado races during the exhibition. It was a great show for visitors: Complete racing crews took part
in the two extreme catamaran races, showing thrilling battles. David Křížek
won the Broker Business Regatta with Roman Hušek and then also the Prague Catamaran Speed Regatta with Zdeněk Adam. The winners participated
in both races in the colours of Broker Consulting. The second place was taken by UNIQA and the third again by Broker Consulting. The winners of both
races received a large number of prizes from partners of the event. The
event closed with an autograph signing of David Křížek who presented his
new book (Dnem i nocí Atlantikem II) at the exhibition. Sincere acknowledgements go to the exhibition director, Marcel Mourek, the exhibition organizers, partners of the race, everybody who helped with the organization, and,
in particular, all participants.
Water sports presentation
A big attraction for visitors was a show featuring MasterCraft boats. It included demonstrations of individual water sports, including various sports
that can be practiced behind special boats, such as monoskiing, trick skiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing.
The flying man
The Flyboard, a special device combining diving, flying and jet skiing, was
showcased exclusively at this year’s exhibition and was one of its biggest
attractions. The Flyboard was constructed by Franky Zapata, a French water
sports lover. During the show, the riders flew up to 9m above water and the
flying men showed a number of somersaults, jumps and quick dives in the
Vltava River.
100th edition of ČSOB Pojišťovna Mayor's Cup
(Primátorky ČSOB Pojišťovny)
The show also hosted a preview of the jubilee, 100th edition of the most famous Czech rowing competition, which was to be held from 7 to 9 June this
year. A men’s eight was shown as a remembrance of a living tradition that
dates back to Austria-Hungary.

BOAT, BOATING ACCESSORIES, WATER SPORTS AND CARAVANS SHOW
The winner of GRAND PRIX, a contest for the best exhibit or new product
of this year’s exhibition, was the Guillemot Petrel Proteak kayak manufactured by Martin Pavlas – Proteak Kayaks. This high-performance sea kayak is
made of mahogany wood and carbon fibres using the sandwich method.
The kayak is hand decorated with burnt motifs by the famous Slovak designer Martin Jankura. The kayak is not only beautiful and perfectly shaped;
thanks to its structure, using high-quality wood and a combination of carbon fibres and high-strength laminate, it is extremely solid and flexible while keeping a very low weight.
BOATS ON THE WATER – the gala night
The aim of the fifth boat, boating accessories and water sports show, BOATS ON THE WATER 2013, was not only to promote this industry in the Czech
Republic but also doing good deeds. Therefore, similarly to last year, this
year's exhibition opened with a charity auction for the benefit of the Dobrý
skutek civic association. A remarkable CZK 76,100 (CZK 5,908 more than
last year) was raised during a gala evening that was held at Hořejší nábřeží
on 17 April 2013. The items auctioned included David Křížek's finish T-shirt,
Lenka Šmídová’s Olympics clothes, a yacht-themed photo picture by Martina Barnetová, Milan Koláček’s yachting suit, David Svoboda’s Olympics bag,
Lucie Křížková’s (Váchová’s) handbag, Jaromír Jágr’s ice-hockey stick, Mercedes-Benz watches and books with Marian Jelínek’s dedication.
The full amount raised will be donated to three selected clients of
the Dobrý skutek civic association:
The Zahrada day-care centre in Prague 3, which urgently needs a new rehabilitation table, Mikuláš Hořínek (5) for a medical bed, and Ivana Votípková
(18) for hearing aids.
We would like to express our sincere thanks
to everyone who contributed!

Radovan Chrz,

Mercedes-Benz Česká republika, s.r.o.
“The cooperation between EXIM tours and the organizers of Boats on the Water & Caravans in Prague
was very successful. EXIM tours is satisfied with both the offer and the actual promotion based on
the contract. We especially appreciate that thanks to good organization, a large number of journalists, VIP guests and exhibition visitors received the catalogues of EXIM tours. Also, the location of
EXIM tours’ exhibition stand in the main tent titled Boutique was excellent. Therefore, we are very satisfied with this event and our mutual cooperation”.
MgA. Alena Kovářová
PR and marketing specialist EXIM tours a.s.
“I would like to express my thanks to Promotým Praha s.r.o. and all organizers of Boats on the Water
for a unique event. The transformation of the Vltava riverbank into a seaport provided an opportunity
for IVECO to present its products in an elegant environment. The intention to show visitors the 10.6m
Crossway Low Entry model in an unusual, attractive environment was successfully fulfilled. I wish
a lot of success in the organization of the sixth edition of Boats on the Water in 2014.”
Jan Kimla, Sales Director for
the Czech Republic and Slovakia,
Iveco Czech Republic, a. s.
“Boats on the Water 2013 was an attractive and well-prepared event that brought life to both banks
of the Vltava River in the centre of Prague for several days. These exhibition days were a holiday for
all lovers of boats, water sports and everything around water. There were interesting boats and technologies to see and thrilling water races attracted crowds of visitors. In addition to other exhibits,
the exhibition featured the first functional prototype of a Czech-made autogyro. It is a pity that the
weather was not very good at the end of the week, except for Sunday. Big thanks to the organizers
for their patient and thorough work. We look forward to next year.”
Ing. Jiří Chomát
“On behalf of Al-Namura, spol. s r.o., I would like to thank Promotým Praha, especially Petr Kotek, for the excellent organization of the exhibition. We were pleased to present our products at Boats on the Water
& Caravans in Prague for the third time. This year, we presented, in addition to the Big Shock! energy drink,
the teams we sponsor, namely KM Racing and H2O Brno, and our stand met with great interest from visitors. We would like to emphasize the excellent cooperation with the exhibition’s team of organizers.”

EXHIBITION QUOTES:
“Radio Impuls supported Boats on the Water for a fourth time and, similarly to the previous years, our
cooperation with Promotým Praha, especially Mr. Kotek, was again seamless and very pleasant. The
"Raging Reporter" of Radio Impuls, Aleš Růžička, reported directly from the exhibition venue. We also
informed our listeners about the event in the form of news coverage and advertising spots. Based on
the response from our listeners, we believe that the event has a potential for further growth and we
hope that we will be able to participate in it as the main media partner again in the next years.”
Jiří Hrabák
General Director of Rádio Impuls
“The fifth edition of the exhibition shows that the organizers have again made further progress and
showed visitors a representative sample of what this quickly-developing sector has to offer at present. I am convinced that both the exhibits and the rich accompanying programme met with interest
from visitors, including motorists, whom I, along with UAMK, represent. Once again, I was very satisfied with the cooperation with Exhibition Manager Mr. Kotek and the Promotým Praha team.”
JUDr. Oldřich Vaníček, President
Central Czech Automobile and Motorcycle Club
“It deserves admiration that despite the continuing crisis, the expert guarantor (APL) along with the
organizer of Boats on the Water & Caravans in Prague, Promotým Praha, managed once again to organize an event that other cities in Central Europe can envy. In particular, I appreciate the effort to draw
the attention of the general public to the exhibition and, in addition to the traditional presentation of
boats, boating accessories and water sports, present caravans and trailers, passenger cars and motorcycles of various brands, electric bikes and outdoor equipment. We look forward to the sixth edition, which, as the organizers say, will be particularly focused on youth and families with kids.”
Michal Šesták
Prague 5 Councillor
“Boats on the Water & Caravans in Prague is one of the events that make Prague one of the leading
European capitals. It brings life to Prague’s embankment areas and a number of ideas for Prague’s inhabitants of how to spend their leisure time. For tourists, it is an unusual attraction. The actual concept of the show is unique, since it is organized in a natural environment instead of sterile exhibition
halls. We appreciate the professional attitude of the organizer, Promotým Praha, and their effort to
create a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. Thanks to them, the embankment zones have become
a true place of relaxation and inspiration for all visitors.”

items for the auction – Lenka Šmídová, Martina Barnetová, Milan Koláček, David Svoboda, Marian Jelínek, Mercedes-Benz and Veba home textile – and, in particular, the organizers headed by Petr Kotek,
thanks to whom we managed to raise a remarkable CZK 78,868. As it had been announced, the full
amount raised will be donated to three selected clients of the Dobrý skutek civic association: The Zahrada day-care centre in Prague 3, which urgently needs a new rehabilitation table, Mikuláš Hořínek
(5) for a medical bed, and Ivana Votípková (18) for hearing aids. Our sincere thanks to everyone who
contributed!“

“I would like to use this opportunity to thank all organizers of the fifth edition of Boats on the Water.
Vladimír Toman, Petr Kotek and their teams did a great job again. Although our group did not manage
to turn all our plans into reality, there was a certain progress. Once again, there was the Broker Business Regatta with the representatives of large companies (Broker Consulting, AXA, UNIQA, ČP Invest,
Unicredit Bank) and our Prague Catamaran Speed Regatta. Excellent conditions, thrilling battles and, in
particular, the perfect commentary of the exhibition host Josef Melen, which made the event even
more attractive. Also, the kids’ programme was significantly extended and the water surface was used
to a larger extent. I believe that this trend will continue and I look forward to our cooperation in the
next years.”

“The Prague 2 District Authority supported the international Boats on the Water & Caravans in Prague
exhibition for the fifth time this year. For the first time this year, we had our own info stand at the venue throughout the exhibition, providing us with an opportunity to present the city district to the public. The Prague 2 institutions presented included, for example, the Vinohrady Library, the Centre for
Children and Youth, the Department of the Environment and the Prague Municipal Police. In addition
to this unique opportunity to present Prague 2, we see Boats on the Water as a prestigious event
that will strengthen the reputation of both our city district and the entire capital of Prague. At the
same time, this is another step to bringing more life to this location, which is also our goal, and we
support every project like this. We look forward to being part of this event next year.”

FINAL SUMMARY
BOATS ON THE WATER & CARAVANS IN PRAGUE 2013, the 5th annual show featuring boats, water sports, boating accessories,
caravans and other activities connected with water, was one of the most successful editions in the history of the exhibition.
More than fifteen thousand visitors attended the exhibition. There were 242 ships and boats both in water and on land and
exhibitors from the Czech Republic and abroad (Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain). Reactions
prove that due to its character and concept, the show has become firmly established in the Czech market and, as one of few
exhibitions, it is gaining in popularity both among exhibitors and visitors. We very much look forward to the 6th edition of BOATS ON THE WATER that, as we firmly believe, will be an even more dignified place for a gathering of all lovers of boats, boating accessories and water sports.
