2021 boot Düsseldorf is cancelled

Published on January 21st, 2021

Show organizer Messe Düsseldorf has canceled boot Düsseldorf for 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic and the associated worldwide lockdown measures. After initially postponing the world’s leading water sports trade fair from January 23-31 to April 17-25, the next boot will now be in 2022 on January 22-30 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“The continuing high level of infection and the fact that the end of the lockdown is not foreseeable for the time being make a resumption of trade fair operations at the end of April appear increasingly unrealistic,” said Wolfram N. Diener, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “We have reassessed the situation with our partners and jointly decided to cancel boot 2021 early. Our priority is the health and planning security of our exhibitors, visitors and service providers. All activities will now be focused on the successful staging of boot 2022.”

The aim, he said, is to return to the concept of boot Düsseldorf both as an event for all water sports enthusiasts and as a business and networking platform for the international trade audience. For 2022, he added, work is also underway on a hybrid trade fair experience that will, among other things, enable digital participation in seminars and events at boot Düsseldorf.
