Why Your Visit Is Worth It?

It’s worthwhile to attend boot Düsseldorf, because it creates a bridge between the general public and trade visitors. Exhibitors are able to connect with end consumers and business buyers, which helps sell products and gain visibility. An exhibition booth generates a high volume of potential sales and direct orders on the spot. It takes no time to earn back all travel expenses. Before the pandemic hit, here is how boot Düsseldorf performed: 

  • 216,000 square metres were dedicated as exhibition space;
  • 1,900 international exhibitors from 68 countries showcased;
  • 250,000 international visitors from 90 countries were present;
  • 18 themed areas 

Industry Relevance 

boot Düsseldorf kicked off in 1969 and has been the defining boating and leisure maritime event in Germany. Editions are held at Messe Düsseldorf in January. Over the years, the show has seen a lot of changes and seen gradual additions to its exhibition space and program. One of the biggest and most loved additions is the Classic Forum held first in 2007 that presented a wealth of classic and antique items along with vintage boats. The year also marked the start of the push to include students into sailing. We also have to mention the strong presence of royals visiting the trade show from Denmark, the UK, Norway and Spain. 

You get the full breadth of accessories, vessels and water sports equipment. Booths showcase jet boats, house boats, marine clothing, maritime art, maritime crafts, boats, motor boats, small boats, navigation systems, jet skiing, kayaks, kneeboards, canoes, diving equipment, wakeboard and water ski. The exhibition space is organised in the following themed areas - Sailing, Motor Boats, Super Yachts, Engines, Equipment & Accessories, Diving, Travelling, Surf Sports, Sportfishing and Paddling. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

As we have mentioned above, Boot Düsseldorf is a hugely international affair. Exhibitors came from 68 countries last year and visitors travelled from 102 countries to be present. We can’t narrow down all the professions and fields connected to sailing, diving and water sports, because it’s impossible. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. What we can confirm is that the dynamic areas for demonstrations is drawing in professional athletes along with passionate amateurs. 

In terms of exhibitors, you encounter names like AERMARINE, CAYAGO, Choppy Water, Eco Sistems Watermakers, Greek National Tourism Organisation, Linssen Yachts, Mike Jucker Hawai and ORCA Explorer Fernreisen. 

Additional Value of Attending 

On top of all the business opportunities, boot Düsseldorf provides a lot of information about the state of the industry. Professionals can download a series of Trend Reports across the industry’s top sectors – Yachting, Chartering, Luxury Charter, Diving and Surfsports. For the general public, there are two seminars available to get individual advice. 

There’s the boot Cruise Coaching seminar where cruising coaches bring visitors up to speed with popular sailing destinations including best restaurants and bars, what equipment you must have on board (nautical charts, harbour handbooks and weather information) and best approaches to plan a sailing trip. For those that are curious about chartering in the first place and don’t have skills or experience, the charter workshop is the best place to start. The programme features lectures from skilled sailors and legends in the sailing world like Sönke Roever and Michael Amme. In 2023, the workshop will also cover information about travelling and chartering during the pandemic. 

But those are only a few of the many events that take place during the event. The dive award and the ocean tribute Award honour excellence in the marine circles. Special events include the Water Pixel World and Classic Forum, which not only displays sailing antiques and vintage boats, but gives visitors a practical look into sail making, rope making and carpentry.
