boot Düsseldorf will present across 13 exhibition halls from 22 to 30 January 2022. These are Halls 4 to 6 with, among others, the entire Brunswick Group, all manufacturers of outboard motors, X-Shore, XO-Boats, Princess, Sunseeker, Sirena, Frauscher, Say and ZAR Formenti. Hall 7a with the exhibitors of superyachts, 7 with maritime art, 8b with surfing - for wingfoiling and wingsurfing the 65m pool has been deepened once again and large wind machines provide a powerful breeze for surfing. Here, market leaders such as Starboard, Gunsails, Goya and Gaastra are among the exhibitors on course. Halls 9 and 10 are almost complete with accessories and equipment exhibitors, including Capelli and Bukh Bremen.

In Hall 9, boot Düsseldorf and the European Boating Industry (EBI) will kick off a new stage at the fair in the boot sustainability forum - blue innovation dock (bid). The bid brings together companies, visionaries, investors and politicians to make the industry fit for the future. Sustainability and innovation are to be particularly promoted in this way. The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), for example, is participating in bid with a high-level political panel on the development of sustainable coastal and marine tourism. This will focus on the expansion of new and existing destinations for maritime and inland tourism, as well as government support for marinas and other boating infrastructure.

Halls 11 and 12 are the diving and equipment centre of boot, with its highlight, the new diving tower in Hall 12. Here, among others, bts, the specialists for recreational diving, and Padi, the world's largest training network for diving, provide advice. Destination Seaside in Halls 13 and 14 is all about tourism on and around the water, with Kiriacoulis, Argos, Cosmos Yachting, Navigare and Kuhnle Hausboote among the exhibitors with their extensive booking programmes. ADAC, the German automobilist club, and the German Caravaning Industry Association (CIVD) will be showing interesting holiday combinations on the subject of water sports and caravanning.

Due to the cancellations of exhibitors from the sailboat manufacturer sector, Hall 15 is the home of the sailors for boot 2022. 40 exhibitors will present themselves here, including Bavaria, Elan, Saare, Greenboats, Haber Yachts, Imexus, Swallow Yachts as well as Aquacraft. All German class associations will be on board and many dinghy manufacturers will use boot 2022 to present their range of sports boats. The focal point and industry meeting point in Hall 15 is the sailing centre with an attractive stage program covering all aspects of international sailing. In addition, sailors will find a wide range of technical and maritime accessories and equipment in Halls 9, 10 and 11.

The sale of visitor tickets for boot 2022 has started well. Petros Michelidakis: "A look at our ticket shop shows that the international interest in boot 2022 is high. Visitors from a total of 60 countries have bought tickets for boot so far. 22 per cent of the purchases (2020: 28 per cent, final status at the time of the fair) come from interested parties from abroad. This is a very good figure for the current situation and clearly shows that visitors have started their travel plans in December. I am pleased to be able to offer all water sports enthusiasts a special boot here in Düsseldorf with many, attractive hands-on activities, committed exhibitors and a highly interesting stage programme."
