Be a part or the world's greatest hotspot for divers and diving suppliers
Diving is in, is tremendous fun and is becoming more and more popular. boot Düsseldorf can confirm these statements, because halls 3 and 4, in which diving apparatus, suits and state-of-the-art equipment are being presented, are in great demand. Divers like to call their sport the “most beautiful hobby in the world” and the top international suppliers will be presenting their products in Düsseldorf again from 21. to 29. January 2017. The exhibitors include such major brands as Aqualung, Atomic Aquatics, Bauer, Mares, Ocean Reef and Scubapro.
Numbers of divers grow steadily 670,000 people (2015 figure) dive regularly in Germany every year and this number has been increasing steadily for years. What boot has in store for them is a wide range of information about the diving instruction provided by such leading organisations as Padi, Protec, PSS worldwide, SSI and the German Diving Association. The diving halls will therefore be a good opportunity to use the cold time of year to prepare for upcoming diving trips and to obtain information about new diving rules and regulations.
Great entertainment combined with expert information The Diving Tower has been the central presentation platform right at the centre of hall 3 for the exhibitors at the boot Düsseldorf for many years. News and diving celebrities are the central features of the attractive programme of lectures, interviews, presentations and films. Especially for newcomers there are loads of interesting talks and information which will be of great help to start diving.
Go for your first dive at the boot 2017 Visitors who then feel like going diving right away can do this with full diving equipment in the diving pool, which is 6 metres long, 4.60 metres wide and 1.80 metres deep. Diving suits, air cylinders & regulators and fins are provided free of charge, while experienced diving instructors from the leading diving and training organisations will be on hand to give tips and advice.
Fascinating destinations for divers worldwide The focus at the diving destinations, which are also being presented at boot, is on outstanding locations rather than on such prosaic topics as training and technical equipment. The travel destinations covered include both highly popular and exotic options, all of which aim to attract visitors to their gorgeous underwater worlds. Major national presentations are, for example, being made by Egypt, Curacao, Indonesia, the Maldives, the Philippines and Turkey. Portugal and Fuerteventura will be presenting their popular diving regions too, however. Anyone who prefers inland lakes to the sea will find that the joint Austrian stand has the necessary information about the excellent diving conditions in the fascinating underwater regions of the lakes in the Salzburg area or Carinthia.
