German boat show returns in January

About 1,600 exhibitors from more than 50 countries will be at the 43rd annual boot Düsseldorf, set for Jan. 21-29 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The show takes up 17 exhibit halls and features everything from fishing rods to luxury yachts.

“The international yachting and watersports industry places great trust in boot as the central European marketplace for the industry — not least due to the different pace of growth on European markets. In Germany and Northern Europe, the economic recovery after the years of crisis is most noticeable and international exhibitors want to profit from this,” show project director Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel said in a statement.

More than 650 foreign exhibitors are expected to take part in the event, which will feature more than 1,700 types of boats. One hall will feature its own superyacht show.

For information on visiting or exhibiting at boot Düsseldorf 2012, contact Messe Düsseldorf North America at (312) 781-5180 or e-mail info@mdna.com.
