BOOT & FUN BERLIN runs for four days in late November in Berlin, Germany. The trade fair is co-located with AUTO CAMPING CARAVAN and TRANSPORTER TAGE BERLIN in order to create maximum synergy and value for visitors. Open to the general public, this event is one of the most popular at the Berlin ExpoCenter City. Work hours are set for 10:00h until 18:00h, but be sure to take note of starting times for special events like the GALA NIGHT OF THE BOATS, which begins at 18:00h. Messe Berlin GmbH brings a well-rounded exciting trade fair every single year. Now let’s talk about how to get to the exhibition centre. You’ll be happy to know that Berlin ExpoCenter City sits close to the city centre, so there are plenty of buses and metro lines servicing the exhibition grounds. In addition, it’s a short drive away from Berlin’s international airports thanks to the city motorway.

  • “We could clearly see how happy customers were that exhibitions are taking place again. There are many, many newcomers currently starting up in the 15 PS category. I think one of the reasons is that holidays both in this region and Germany are booming,” – Marvin Reuter, MaRe Boote;
  • “We represent Linssen Yachts and are delighted that many visitors came directly to our stand to find out about our yachts. As regards sales, we were able to establishing promising leads at the event,” – Uwe Schorpp, Marina Zehdenick;
  • “We had many interested customers on our stand who were enthusiastic about our ready-to-sail charter boats,” – Diether Wilhelms, D.H.W.-Yachtcharter;
  • “We are delighted with the keen interest in our boats and are very satisfied overall. Electric boats proved to be a special attraction. Lots of visitors wanted to find out more about quiet, eco-friendly electric motors, which is good thing,” - Guido Krüger, water sports suppliers G. Krüger & M. Till GbR

BOOT & FUN BERLIN made one of the strongest comebacks post pandemic with its most recent live edition boasting strong attendance – more than 30,000 visitors from Berlin and its surrounding areas. The exhibition centre was filled with 560 boats total and stands from 700 exhibitors. This is a strong indication that the market has recuperated and exhibitors will have a lot more success with reaching interested buyers. There’s also space for private sellers, who want to sell their personal boats second hand. BOOT & FUN BERLIN is known as the biggest indoor used boat market in Germany. The trade fair attracts water sports enthusiasts, professionals and hobbyists from all over the country. Aside from boats you have a wide variety of products and equipment for inland and coastal watersports. BOOT & FUN BERLIN creates a direct line between the exhibitor and the end customer, which is valuable when it comes to gaining customer insights and taking note of specific tastes.
