boot Düsseldorf is looking to set new standards in 2018 with increased exhibition space being created for a new exhibit, Beach World.

Hall 8a, which is more than 1,000sq m larger than the hall has been in the past, provides space for action, fun and games. It will house the popular WAVE exhibition which premiered at boot 2017.

“boot is the leading destination anywhere in the world for everyone who loves sports in, by and on the water – surfers, divers, water sports holidaymakers and sailors or motor boat,” said Matthias Dornscheidt, Messe Düsseldorf director.

What to see

There will be plenty to see and admire in the luxury halls, 5, 6 and 7a, from fast, streamlined tenders and fast tow-in motor boats, to large luxury yachts.

This year, the Majesty from Gulfcraft, will be on show at boot for the first time.

The luxury segment will be supplemented at boot 2018 by hosting the German Superyacht Conference on January 24.

Halls 15 to 17 will feature numerous 60 to 70ft boat premieres, with a substantial growth in multihull boats in particular. Current developments and trends like foiling are the focus of the sailing stage in Hall 15.

boot 2018 will be held by the Rhine in Düsseldorf from January 20 to 28 2018.
