boot Düsseldorf is set to expand again in 2020 with a new Hall 1 and a new, expanded layout planned.

Organisers of the water sports trade exhibition say they have taken into account the requirements and concerns of the industry with regards to hall configuration and have come up with a concept that lays the right foundations for the future.

The changes mean the whole of the motorboat segment will be located in Halls 1 – 6 while the recreational diving sector will be concentrated in Hall 12 and part of Hall 11 with room to expand in future years.

“An analysis of visitor movements and the areas of interest to visitors over the past few years as well as intensive discussions with the exhibitors have prompted us to give boot Düsseldorf a new layout,” explained Werner Matthias Dornscheidt, boot CEO. “We aim to provide all visitors with an attractive routing system and direct access to the topics that appeal to them and everything that is associated with these topics.”


“The objective is also for the companies exhibiting to be able to reach their target groups here precisely too.”

In 2020, the inboard motorboat segment from 30 to around 60ft will be in Hall 1 with outboard motorboats will be in Hall 3 and towboats and tenders in Hall 4.

Luxury tenders and shadow boats will be in Hall 5 with the luxury sector remaining in Hall 6 with the gallery of Hall 6 expanded for super and mega shipyards.

In addition, three halls – 15 to 17 - will be devoted to sailing.

“As far as we are concerned, sailing is the original water sport,” said Werner. “Sailing was the first way that people moved across water and sailing is as popular as ever so it is no surprise that the number of exhibitors at boot is continuing to grow.”
