The German Federal Government has decided that trade fair participants are generally considered business travelers with good cause to enter Germany.
In addition, the current corona entry regulation of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (CoronaEinrVO) applies. When entering Germany, trade fair exhibitors must submit a confirmation of participation from the trade fair organizer as proof. boot exhibitors have received an admission document which they can download from the Online Order System (OOS).
Visitors to the trade fair must present their admission ticket to boot and also an appointment for a business meeting with at least one exhibitor. This regulation applies with immediate effect and without exception to all trade fair participants from countries that are currently not included in the German positive list or are included under conditions on the German positive list. Further information on this subject can be found in the FAQ of the Federal Ministry of the Interior under the question "Which skilled and highly qualified foreign workers are permitted to enter Germany from a non-European foreign country?"
According to the current status of the CoronaEinrVO of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia dated October 7, 2020, people entering Germany from risk areas must present a negative corona test, which was carried out no more than 48 hours before entering the Federal Republic of Germany. Decisive for the beginning of the 48-hour period is the time at which the test result is determined. The test result or the medical certificate must be kept for at least 14 days after entry. Please note that due to the dynamic development the situation may change at any time.
"boot Düsseldorf 2021 is very well positioned. The manufacturers of boats and yachts have almost uniformly announced their participation. Halls 1 to 6, 9 and 10 as well as 15 to 17 are already very well booked at this stage. We will have all the major global players in the sailing and motor yacht sector as well as the superboat and luxury yacht area on board again. The European shipyards are convinced of the great necessity of boat shows and have told us in many conversations that the boatbuilding industry would not survive without boat shows. They are the elixir of life of the entire water sports community", explains boot director Petros Michelidakis.
In addition to the boat suppliers, the manufacturers of engines - combustion and electric drives (Halls 9 and 10) - will be fully represented. Surf sports hall 8a will once again show itself as a highly professional trendsetter in the sector. Behind the colourful and cool presentation is a hard work, inventive talent and innovative technology. Among other things, the latest developments in the in-sports "Wing Surfing" will be on display here. "And we are delighted to have a very special highlight ready for the large diving community. 42 years ago, the first diving tower stood on boot Düsseldorf. In 2021, it will be replaced by a new, high tower that can be seen from all sides. The dives will be visualised even better and visitors will have a great view of the athletes. We have already planned many exciting demonstrations there", says Michelidakis with a view to the diving enthusiasts and adds: "Even if the travel industry suffers from the effects of the crisis, we will be able to present a varied and attractive range of offers in 2021". In addition, leading international charter operators and houseboat hirers are again on board, as these safe forms of holiday are currently in great demand.
Also ready to start is the extensive program of participation in the popular water sports: surfing on the "WAVE", SUPen on the Flatwater pool, sailing in the Sailing Center, paddling on the canoeing track, sport fishing on the fishing pond or diving in the new diving tower. Water sports enthusiasts come at their expense on boot in the bleak Central European January. The diverse stage programs with expert tips are worthwhile for both beginners and experienced skippers.
Messe Düsseldorf is also relying on its proven "PROTaction" safety system at boot Düsseldorf. The campaign for the implementation of the hygiene and infection protection rules has already proven at this year's CARAVAN SALON DÜSSELDORF that trade fairs for mobile leisure time can be successfully held under the special conditions
