The world’s largest trade fair for boat, yacht and water sports enthusiasts, BOOT DÜSSELDORF, is scheduled to take place in Düsseldorf in January 2021, despite ongoing Coronavirus pandemic issues.

According to the organizers, who are optimistic, “BOOT Düsseldorf 2021” will take place as planned from January 23rd to 31st. The popular trade fair is an institution at the beginning of the year and sets the course for a successful year for a lot of brokers and nautical companies. According to the exhibition director Wolfram Diener, BOOT will be held in accordance with applicable hygiene and infection protection rules in a total of 17 halls, in a slightly different way, but equally inspiring.

The planning for BOOT 2021 is on track and the current number of registrations corresponds overall to the level of 2019, according to the organizers. Almost all manufacturers of boats and yachts who were also on board in 2020, will be there again and halls 5 and 6 with the luxury yacht expositions are almost completely rented.

The BOOT team is in exchange with representatives of those sectors that have been more severely hit by the pandemic, like tourism, and are looking for possibilities to make their participation possible. The number of registrations with the providers of houseboat holidays or the charter sector are quite well, too, as these types of vacation are considered a very safe alternative and are enjoying growing popularity.

For the Caravan Salon, which took place from September 4th to 13th, the Düsseldorf Exhibition center already developed a comprehensive hygiene and infection protection concept in close cooperation with authorities and in coordination with the state government, which will be updated at any time. “Visitors at the Caravan Salon welcomed the new hygiene measures and felt safe” explained trade fair boss Diener. For BOOT, the program on the stages and the hands-on activities such as surfing, diving or such will take place in compliance with Coronavirus measurements, online tickets will be scanned to track possible chains of infection and exhibitors are also asked to use scanners.



BOOT DÜSSELDORF delights exhibitors and visitors alike with its innovative capacity, spectacular productions, excellent services and, above all, with the possibility to make contacts to like-minded people from around the world.
