As the world’s largest indoor yacht and water sports trade fair, boot 2015 Düsseldorf will feature new boats and boating equipment as well as the latest water sports gear and maritime services in 17 exhibition halls. Visitors can look forward to a wide variety of international brands in almost every boating segment.

The majority of the halls at boot 2015 will be dedicated to boats and yachts powered by sails, engines or muscle power. Over 1,700 boats and yachts, ranging from canoes and dinghies to luxury yachts, will be on show.

Trend sports, diving and paddling will be the topics featured in several halls. Manufacturers and distributors will offer new products for trend sports such as wakeboarding, stand up paddling, kite-surfing and surfing. In addition, about 300 international charter companies, tour operators, tourism organizations, clubs and associations will present maritime travel destinations in two halls.

The popular “Experience 360° watersports” segment with its 18 theme and adventure worlds (including the Beach World, Diving Center, World of Paddling, Sport Fishing Center and Sailing School) will provide a multitude of hands-on activities. Attendees have the opportunity to experience and try out virtually every type of water sport: wakeboarding, skimboarding, stand up paddling, sailing, diving, canoeing and fishing.

The Action Center in the surfing segment includes a large pool for surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing and wakeboarding enthusiasts to test their skills by trying out the latest equipment presented by the exhibitors - with professional trainers giving helpful tips. A kite and front loop simulator provide extra challenges for surfing fans.

Every January, boot attracts 1,650 exhibitors from 60 countries and about 250,000 international visitors. At the event’s last staging in January 2014, exhibitors were pleased with the attendees’ high willingness to invest and reported business deals in many sections of the product ranges.
