boot Dusseldorf 2010Having opened its doors this past Saturday, boating and watersports enthusiasts gathered in Dusseldorf from around the world for the 41st boot Dusseldorf 2010. With 1,568 exhibitors from 55 countries, is clear that, in spite of a tough year for the industry, boot Dusseldorf has maintained its course as the leading event for the boating and watersports industries worldwide.

This year, a new project director, Goetz-Ulf Jungmichel, is behind the helm and has combined the tradition that has made boot Dusseldorf a success over the years with new ideas. Embracing a slogan of "360° Watersports Live", boot Dusseldorf 2010 promises its visitors a more hands-on experience, where they are encouraged to participate on-site. Visitors can visit hall 3 and test diving equipment live in a second diving tank, practice stand-up paddling in the action pool at Beach World.

boot Dusseldorf 2010Boating enthusiasts may also browse the range of boats, from the superyachts to kayaks, boot Dusseldorf has them all. This year's trends are especially focusing on a return to smaller boats, whose simplicity and affordability aim to attract newcomers and especially families to embrace boating as a new hobby.

It's already clear after three days that the industry is optimistic for the year ahead and can count on boot Dusseldorf to lead the way. Having started on January 23, boot Dusseldorf will run until Sunday, January 31, and visitors are encouraged to participate daily from 10am - 6pm.
