The 2022 Düsseldorf International Boat Show – aka boot – has been cancelled due to new coronavirus restrictions imposed by the German government shortly before the New Year.
The new restrictions limit the size of indoor gatherings, leading the management of Messe Düsseldorf to issue a statement regarding boot’s cancellation:
‘Due to the spread of the omicron virus variant, further restrictions will apply in North Rhine-Westphalia with the adjustment of the Covid Protection Ordinance from 30th December, among other things at public trade fairs. This also affects boot Düsseldorf, which as a supra-regional leisure fair may not take place in 2022 due to the measures decided by the state government.‘
Tickets for the show will be invalidated and not transferrable to the new dates of 21-29 January 2023. Refunds can be applied for at the ticketing point of sale; eTickets bought via the boot online ticket services will be refunded automatically, although there may be a three-week waiting period for the refund to be processed.
