Review BOOT 2018

The world's largest water sports exhibition the BOOT took place as every year in Düsseldorf/Germany from 20th – 28th of January. Compared to the previous year, the exhibition had an increase of visitors, with a total of 247,000 visitors from 94 countries. With 1,923 exhibitors, the BOOT also celebrated a record.
As usual the entire diving industry was represented in hall 3: diving centers, tour operators, manufacturers, diving associations and diving shops, the who is who of the scene.
This year the organizers presented the stage area and the two diving towers in a new design, small wooden cabins in a village character managed by the exihibition diving center.
The nine days of the exihibition were long but the many visitors at our booth let the time pass by very fast. We would like to thank all those who visited us, our loyal customers as well as new faces.

We were also looking at new releases in the diving industry, had a lot of interesting conversations and also ordered a lot of equipment for our customers. New scooters, full face masks with radio, snorkel masks with radio and much more, there are plenty of surprises waiting for you.
And even the weather was good this year, no snow, no ice, even sun from time to time.

We missed the halls 1 and 2, both halls were demolished and the construction work on the new exhibition center was in full action.

We are looking forward to the new halls and the BOOT 2019!
