With some 1,800 exhibitors from over 65 countries, boot Düsseldorf is considered a benchmark for the international boat and water sports industry. Here, you can try almost everything that has to do with watersports: Experience the pure outdoors at the 90-metre long river, join the sailing school, visit the Cruise Pavilion or the Beach World with its unique shows and competitions or take a look at more than 1,500 yachts.

“Known as ‘the place’ where the entire industry meets in January every year, boot Düsseldorf 2018 will feature new products, business developments and maritime equipment over an area of 220,000 square metres” said Petros Michelidakis, Director of boot Dusseldorf. “Meaning the entire global market will be on location across 16 exhibition halls”.

The next edition of boot Düsseldorf will be held 20 – 28 January 2018 and will be open to visitors daily from 10:00 to 18:00.
