British Marine at Boot Düsseldorf 2019

British Marine has reported an increased level of interest from UK businesses looking to exhibit on its prominent Showcase stand at boot Düsseldorf 2019 with space selling out in record time and a waiting list of companies who missed out on securing space.

In total, 88% of the companies on the British Marine Showcase stand are first-time exhibitors whilst across the whole of boot Düsseldorf 2019, over 45% of British exhibitors are new to the Show.

British Marine has already outlined plans to expand its Showcase stand in 2020 to meet significant growth in demand and is in discussions with event organisers about other exciting future opportunities for UK companies interested in exhibiting at the event.

Located in Hall 11, British Marine’s Showcase stand (Stand 11 H.75) has become a prime destination for international boaters looking for the latest in British innovation and high-quality services and is the ideal platform for brands looking to enter the European market. Members on the Showcase stand this year will include Clearwater Rating Ltd, Kingfisher Yacht Ropes, Farécla Products Limited, Iris Innovations Limited, PRP Optoelectronics Ltd, Seaglaze Group, Seasmart Marine Limited and the Chelsea Magazine Company, as well as a returning exhibitor, BHG Marine Ltd.

In total, many British brands will be among the thousand-plus exhibitors at the world’s largest watersports show which attracts over 250,000 visitors from 90 countries.

In addition, British Marine will be hosting ‘[email protected]’ at the Show, a new networking reception supported by the Department for International Trade (Germany). Taking place on Tuesday 22 January between 4:30pm-6:00 pm at the British Marine Showcase stand, UK marine business and international buyers and distributors are invited to join together to talk business. During the event, the British Marine team and Department for International Trade advisors from the British Embassy in Berlin will be available for invaluable one-to-one discussions.

Lesley Robinson, Chief Executive Officer at British Marine, commented: “With the thriving international boating market, it is great to see so many home-grown brands eager to exploit the sales platform boot Düsseldorf offers to grow exports and showcase British craftsmanship and expertise at this time of year.

“As the leading trade association for the UK industry, we look forward to welcoming an array of visitors across the nine days to our popular Showcase stand and are working with organisers to develop additional opportunities for members at future events.” Team
