BOOT 2022 in Düsseldorf cancelled

The 2022 edition of the BOOT in Düsseldorf, which was to take place at the end of January in the Rhine City, is finally cancelled. A decision that makes sense in the current pandemic context.

BOOT 2022 in Düsseldorf cancelled

This evening, the Boot organization announced the cancellation of the world's largest indoor boat show, which takes place every year at the end of January in Düsseldorf, through its director, Wolfram Diener.

This cancellation will come as no surprise to anyone, as in early December, while the Paris Boat Show was in full swing, the Italian and then French shipyards had collectively announced that they would not participate in the Boot 2022, as they could not guarantee the health safety of their staff and customers; (our Article: French Shipyards give up on Boot 2022).

This was followed by a series of press releases from the Boot, confirming that it would be held in a format reduced to 13 Halls, vs. 18 (even so), with ultimately few boats, and a focus more on water sports, a format far removed from the one that has made the Boot such a deserved success, namely bringing together in one place and at one time the largest offer of motor and sailing boats in the world.
