Tickets for the boat show are sold electronically. For guests who would travel to the show by public transport, they will also become return train or bus tickets. Entrance to the exhibition is to be arranged in such a way that to avoid lines and crowds.
Provided a distance of 1.5 metres from other people is maintained, it will be possible to breathe without a mask not only outside but also sitting at stands, at the stage where speakers of the business programme are performing and also in the cafe area.
