Reasons to come to this big
international boat show

A few words

The Salon fluvial has become a major event in the life of Saint-Jean-de-Losne. As the leading river port in France, boosted by its socio-professional fabric historically oriented towards the Saône, it was obvious that Saint-Jean should host such an event.
A meeting place for local authorities, professionals in the sector and tourism for both amateurs and lovers of the Saône and river traffic in general; this exhibition is the ideal opportunity to meet, get together and exchange ideas about what makes up the image of our region: the Saône.


A real showcase for the know-how of professionals in this field, the exhibition is part of the strategy of the River Charter, which will be signed in April 2021. An innovative tool, it aims to develop and promote the river industry in all its aspects and Saint-Jean-de-Losne will be its figurehead. The Salon fluvial 2022 will reflect this collaboration between all the partners in the sector: municipalities, communities of municipalities, the department, the region, professionals and river tourism enthusiasts.
