boot Düsseldorf 2021 has been postponed until April 17.
Organisers Messe Düsseldorf, say the decision to postpone Europe’s largest watersports show from January is due to high numbers of Covid-19 infections across Europe and current restrictions in Germany.
“At the present moment in time, we cannot reliably gauge whether a trade fair can be implemented in January 2021,” said Messe Düsseldorf’s CEO Wolfram Diener. “This is due to current infection rates, ongoing travel restrictions and existing legal provisions which do not permit trade fairs to be held currently.”
The new dates have been chosen after consultations with partners and exhibitors together with considering the expected Covid situation which is expected to calm down in most European countries by the Spring.
And they say CARAVAN SALON held in September 2020 demonstrated trade fairs can be successfully held in Corona times.
“After many talks with exhibitors, associations and partners we have chosen very carefully the new dates although we know that it is difficult to fulfil everybody’s wish,” added boot project director Petros Michelidakis.
“We believe that boot Düsseldorf held in April will be welcomed for the planning of the boating and water sports activities for the rest of the year.”
The new dates for the show will be April 17 to 25.
