After two high profile last minute cancellations of European boat shows, a statement from the organisers of boot Düsseldorf 2021 says the massive event is “fully on course – everything’s going to plan”.
The event, known simply as ‘boot‘ [boat in German], will take place in Düsseldorf from 23 to 31 January.
The organisers’ statement comes after the last minute cancellations of Boats2020 in Southampton in September and the Cannes Yachting Festival the previous month.
Wolfram Diener, boot CEO, said that boot Düsseldorf would “set a course for a year of watersports success”.
“boot Düsseldorf is well aware of its responsibility to the industry as the world’s biggest platform for watersports,” he said.
“We are sure that we can come out on top if we work together and are delighted to be able to offer you this location in Düsseldorf for this.
“We have organised a boot that looks a little different, but is no less exciting, across 17 trade fair halls and in accordance with the valid hygiene and infection protection regulations.
“CARAVAN SALON 2020, which has just drawn to a close, paved the way for this. CARAVAN SALON proved beyond a doubt that trade fairs in Düsseldorf are successful and that exhibitors can produce impressive economic results, even under the new rules.
“We’re delighted by this outcome, as it has demonstrated that trade fairs continue to be an essential marketing tool for both the caravanning industry and the watersports sector, even in today’s climate.”
