The 2020 boot Düsseldorf offers visitors a new layout. Traditional favourites that include the world’s key players in the motorboat, sailing yacht, engine, diving equipment, board and charter industry will be presenting their latest offerings. With some 2,000 international manufacturers and suppliers from 70 nations, the fair will reveal exciting, interesting and extremely informative innovations.

Sailing Center

Sailing is, and always has been, more than just a sport. Sailing means true passion – passion you can experience for yourself in three impressive halls. Discover dinghies and sailing yachts, the latest trends and thrilling voyages. Our experts give sailing fans-in-the-making valuable tips in our new “Start Sailing” area whilst the little ones get ready to cast off inthe boot Sailing School.

Luxury Sector

With classically beautiful motor boats and luxurious creations, the luxury halls 5, 6 and 7a are even bigger, better and more diverse than before. Manufacturers offer plenty to see and admire with large luxury yachts reaching more than 40 m in length. New trends include tender und chase boats as well as fractional ownership.

Super Yacht Show

Hall 6 always is a real crowd puller at boot Düsseldorf! Luxury yachts and boats as well as tender and chase boats from the high-end range invite you to revel in sheer luxury. Especially the range of yachts between 20 and 25 meters has grown in recent years. Also in demand are large multihulls, sailing as well as power. Of course, the exceptionally big boats on show by Azimut, Sunseeker, Princess and others are always worth a visit, too. So come and enjoy!

Powerboat World

Whether you prefer them small yet appealing or large and exclusive, boot Düsseldorf has everything you need to make your dream of your own motorboat come true. The impressive walk through the seven motorboat halls at boot Düsseldorf is brand new– take your time and enjoy the fascinating array of motorboats, motoryachts and, of course, state-of-the-art equipment.

Dive Center

Now, you can find your diving paradise above water as well: In Halls 11 and 12 you can experience all the facets of diving. Leave your daily routine behind as you try out diving, discover state-of-the-art equipment, the most beautiful holiday destinations and meet other fans of scuba diving. Of course, protecting our oceans is an issue that is close to the heart of every water sports fan – visit our “love your ocean” area for information around this topic.

Refit Center

By the way, boot Düsseldorf is also a real insider’s tip for shopping fans among water sports enthusiasts. At the show, you will not only find an almost overwhelming range of maritime products – from fenders to high-end navigation devices – but also attractive trade fair offers at great prices. A visit to Halls 8a (surfing) as well as Hall 10 (boat equipment) to Hall 12 (diving) is therefore worthwhile in more than one way.

Sportfishing Center

At the Sportfischer Center in Hall 14 you can learn how to land the catch of your lifetime or where to spend the most relaxing hours at the water with a rod in your hand. You can try for yourself how it feels to drill a huge blue marlin or learn the sophisticated art of fly fishing. Just discover this very moment!

Beach World

If you want to know exactly what’s hot right now, come to the hub of surfsports in Hall 8a. Unlimited board sports action, new trends, the latest equipment and, of course, lots of fun – this is simply unique and can only be found here at boot Düsseldorf. Whether you are a windsurfer, kitesurfer, wakeboarder, surfer, stand up paddler or a skimboarder – at the Beach World everyone gets their money’s worth.

Travel World

Make your dream of a perfect holiday at the water come true at boot Düsseldorf, the place where you will find the best travel agencies and providers – in the Travel World in Halls 13 and 14. Enjoy the most beautiful time of the year in a beach resort, feel the elements on your next sailing trip or relax on a houseboat or floating home. On top, the best boat model for your charter holiday is already anchored in one of the boat halls for you to discover.

World of Paddling

It is is a whiff of adventure and wildlife that goes through Hall 14! In-between towering rocks and trees a 90-meter long creek meanders through the hall. 3 meters wide and 40 centimeters deep, it flows into two large lakes. Take your time to test new canoes and kayaks, make your first attempts at paddling or even take a brief canoeing tour with the whole family!

The canoe route at the boot Düsseldorf is open all day long on every fair day for adults and children. The exhibitors are eager to provide you with their boats for test tours. Here in the World of Paddling you can truly experience canoeing up close and test the boats under realistic conditions. Nowhere it is easier to get on the water as at the boot Dusseldorf!

Love Your Ocean

Everyone, including children, is encouraged to become involved in the ecology agenda of the boot Düsseldorf. People are being galvanised by this project that presents possible ways that the industrial and scientific communities as well as society in general can protect the world’s oceans and climate. Furthermore, projects and initiatives from around the world that are dedicated to marine protection can sign up for consideration for the ocean tribute Award.

For several years, boot Düsseldorf has focussed on the protection of seas and waters. They have teamed up with the Prince Albert II Foundation and the German Marine Foundation to create the “ocean tribute” award. A prestigious panel reviews entries annually to reward the achievements of “people who, across all social and political levels, have an eye on the well-being of the earth and the seas”, so boot director Petros Michelidakis. This year’s winners of the “ocean tribute” award Boris Herrmann and the Malizia Ocean Challenge, are sailing the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg CO2-neutrally to her overseas lectures.

In another aspect of their climate drive, boot Düsseldorf has teamed up with EBI, the European Boating Industry to bring together over 150 participants and encourage cross-sectoral developments towards decarbonisation. It brings together high-level experts to provide thought leadership on this key issue for industry, governments and the wider public. Alternative solutions are expected to be hydrogen, hybrid and electric engines.

The lounge provides free WLAN access for all members. Membership of the club is free and entitles members to purchase online tickets for just € 15. Over 90,000 members already take advantage of the benefits the club has to offer.

“_boot“: is the international trendsetter in the industry. With 17 exhibition halls covering 220,000 square metres, it is the leading destination anywhere in the world for everyone who loves sports in, by and on the water._
