EBI- düsseldorf

European Boating Industry and boot Düsseldorf signed an agreement extending their partnership for another two years in an effort to strengthen the German boat show, as well as the industry overall, during and after the pandemic.

Though many boat shows and events have been canceled or postponed due to Covid-19, boot Düsseldorf is scheduled to run Jan. 23-31.

“Boot will be playing a major role in the rebooting of the industry in these difficult times,” EBI secretary general Philip Easthill said in a statement. “The boating industry will finally have an opportunity to present its innovations and technical developments to the international boating community again.”

EBI and boot Düsseldorf, one of the world’s largest indoor boat shows, will partner to hold an International Breakfast Meeting on Jan. 26.

The partnership will also focus on protecting the growing watersports industry in Europe, said boot Düsseldorf project director Petros Michelidakis.

“Close cooperation with the European association is extremely important in this special situation,” Michelidakis said. “Together we will succeed in overcoming the present difficulties and stimulating the watersports industry.”
