boot Düsseldorf 2018

Our report from boot Düsseldorf 2018

We seized the opportunity to exhibit from 19th to 27th January at Europe’s largest end customer water sports trade fair - the Düsseldorf International Boat Show, more commonly known as boot Düsseldorf.

With around 250,000 visitors in just 10 days, we would surely have missed a golden opportunity had we not attended this fair. The visitors at this trade fair come from more than 90 countries and are a mixture of B2C and B2B customers.


FSE Robline was represented in 2 different ways:

  • firstly in Hall 11, where we presented this year’s new products and ropes, established contacts with professional customers and to approach shipyards and distributors in person.
  • We were also represented for the first time in Hall 12 by one of our retailers. As a result, all of those customers who valued the opportunity of a full face-to-face consultation could make their purchasing decisions on-the-spot.


We were delighted to receive many visits from existing and satisfied FSE Robline customers as well as specific inquiries about our yachting ropes.

A highlight of this year’s fair was once again the Trade Fair Party, which was held jointly with our general agent Peter Frisch GmbH and its brands Musto and Spinlock. Over beer and pretzels, we cultivated our business contacts, made new ones, and looked forward to the new year in a positive mood.


Until next year’s boot Düsseldorf trade fair!
