Overview of the Interboot 2017 – International water sports exhibition in Friedrichshafen from September 23 to October 1, 2017 – About 500 exhibitors to present a wide range of products and services
“Weigh anchor and full speed ahead” will again be ring out at the 56th Interboot in Friedrichshafen in late summer. From September 23 to October 1, about 500 exhibitors will show everything having to do with water sports. This year’s edition of the international water sports exhibition promises exciting moments on and in the water. From surfboards to family cruisers, from canoes to daysailers – the eight exhibition halls, the Trade Fair Lake and the Interboot Harbour will shine the spotlight on the entire spectrum of water sports. “We offer visitors a diverse selection of presentations, exhibitions and test sailing opportunities and want to encourage them to participate. For example, our Interboot Harbour, with 130 berths, is absolutely predestined for such a role,” said Messe Friedrichshafen CEO Klaus Wellmann.
The entertainment and participation program promises splashy fun in the wet element, without any dry technical input. The new initiative “Your Job – Your Moment,” in which a variety of professions in water sports will be presented, will also be making its premiere.
There will also be a new hovercraft show on Lake Constance.
“We are staying the course set last year and are adding additional thematic focal points. Fostering the next generation of water sports enthusiasts is very close to our heart, which is why we have also launched the vocation orientation initiative ‘Dein Job – Dein Moment’,” project leader Dirk Kreidenweiss explains.
Special theme areas organized provide an overview of trends and current issues in water sports. Alternative propulsion concepts and the sustainable use of materials in boat construction will be put at the center of attention. To do this, a product show at which future product developments will be presented will be organized in Hall B2. Foiling remains a hot topic, and is the subject of a collection that will be on display in Hall A1. From a single-hulled foiling boat all the way to a “flying” catamaran – anyone who is interested in sailing faster than the wind is guaranteed to find what they are looking for there.
The Sailing and Travel Competence Center will also be expanded to provide information about even more topics, ranging from bluewater sailing to motorboat cruising.
The Interboot will be open from Saturday, September 23 until Sunday, September 1, daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Interboot Harbor will be open daily until 7 p.m. On Thursday, Hall B1 will be open for Sunset Shopping until 9 p.m. The Interboot will be accessible through the West Entrance at the Rothaus Hall/A1.
On the first weekend of the show, the InterDive diving exhibition will take place alongside the Interboot, which can only be reached through the East Entrance. A shuttle bus will operate between the two entrances. Shuttles will also operate between the train station, ferry dock, Interboot Harbour and the parking area at the exhibition grounds. A day pass costs 12 euros, reduced admission is 10 euros. A family pass is available for 28 euros. Children between the ages of six and fourteen pay 5 euros.
