They say time flies when you’re having fun… well, Peters & May cannot believe that yet another year at Boot Dusseldorf is over!
It’s always an exciting show to exhibit at. As one of the largest boating shows in Europe, Boot Dusseldorf 2018 covered an impressive 16 halls of the Exhibition Centre this year. Exceeding our expectations once again, Boot Dusseldorf was back in force for its 49th year running. With 1,923 exhibitors from 68 countries, the event was certainly an international affair.
Doors opening at 10am, visitors flocked in to see all the attractions the show had to offer. As Peters & May hoped, our stand saw a steady flow of guests, whom our team of experts welcomed to speak about their shipping requirements. This year marked a record number of enquiries across the 9-day show. Quote requests included shipments across popular routes including Northern Europe to the Mediterranean, and Transatlantic shipments from the Caribbean to Europe.
Dave Holley, Peters & May CEO was pleased with this year’s event. “Another cracking year at Dusseldorf marks a great start to 2018. This year’s show came at an exciting time for Peters & May with the announcement of two new acquisitions – one company in the USA and the other in the Middle East. It’s great to see so many international enquiries at Dusseldorf, all of which are clear evidence of our growing global success”.
As promised, Peters & May threw a few parties along the way; offering a relaxed environment for clients and like-minded industry experts to unwind, discussing their future shipping plans. The Peters & May Caribbean Party on the first Saturday of the show, brought a tropical feel to an otherwise, cold and stormy day. Rum in full flow, the team were pleased to welcome, prospects, customers and partners alike to the stand.
Jesper Jensen, Sales Manager for Peters & May Germany commented “Boot Dusseldorf is an important show for the whole business, but even more so for Peters & May Germany with our office located in Hamburg. It was fantastic to meet so many people, and exciting to see such an international presence on our stand with German, Danish, Italian, Spanish and English-speaking staff members in attendance”.
After kicking off the 2018 boat show season at Dusseldorf, Peters & May are looking forward the next show in Miami this February. Don’t forget to contact our US team ahead of the show to arrange a meeting.
