boot Düsseldorf is not spared from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and postpones its 52nd edition to April 17th to 25th 2021.

For a long time the fair management held on to the target date, but now boot Düsseldorf had to pay tribute to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Instead of the end of January, boot Düsseldorf will now take place from April 17th to 25th. Wolfram Diener, CEO of Messe Düsseldorf, explains: “At the moment we cannot estimate with certainty whether a fair in January 2021 can be realised. This is due to the current infection rate, the still difficult travel situation and the existing regulations, according to which fairs cannot take place at the moment”.

The largest stand in Hall 7a, the networking platform of Deutsche Yachten will also be set up on this new date. Claus-Ehlert Meyer, Managing Director of the German Boat and Shipbuilders’ Association and thus also of the Working Group Deutsche Yachten, comments on the development: “First of all, we welcome the decision not to hold the show in January. Given the current infection situation, nobody can predict with any certainty what the situation will be at the originally planned date. Nevertheless, we will have to adapt to the changed conditions. At a digital meeting, which is scheduled for mid December, we will decide on the possible form of a Deutsche Yachten appearance at boot 2021”.
