“boot Düsseldorf is the only trade fair in the world that truly represents the diversity of the industry and scene. With manufacturers from over 70 countries throughout the world expected to attend, we are unique in exhibiting such a wide range of product diversity. 1,500 sailing and motor boats have found their trade fair home at boot”, explains boot Director Petros Michelidakis. The visitors of the biggest watersports trade fair in the world are equally diverse: they will follow the trade fair’s call to attend from over 102 different countries. Michelidakis: “This means that boot is not simply a show for regional visitors, rather, it is a recognized international industry event, characterized by its B2B platform. This is how decision makers from large charter companies, for example, use the trade fair: to gain a comprehensive overview of the market, to make direct contact with manufacturers and to make comparisons.” This is on the rise as charters are becoming more and more popular among boot visitors and exhibitors and are a real trend in the industry.
