As the Boot Düsseldorf boat show grows in size and importance, so do the Irish in attendance. This year saw Federation members, including MGM Boats and BJ Marine, promoting their brands and doing brisk business.

Since the demise of the London Boat Show, the Irish are now heading to Düsseldorf in January to see the latest designs on display in the numerous halls of the largest indoor boat show in the world. IMF Members reported a very positive mood among the 250,000 people who attended the show.

In addition, the IMF held high level meetings with both ICOMIA and the European Boating Industry, where it represented members interests and extended contacts with EU officials.

If you haven’t been, this is the show to go to. Direct flights to Düsseldorf airport and a free shuttle bus make it a fast and convenient affair. It takes two days to do the show justice, but the contacts, new products and new designs will justify the footwork involved in seeing it all.
