Boot Düsseldorf 2022 cancelled


Boot Düsseldorf 2022 has been cancelled for a second successive year due to concerns around the coronavirus pandemic.

Organisers said that the cancellation was threatened for several weeks as the Omicron variant spread in Europe. After the German government announced a ban on indoor events with more than 750 people until the end of January, the event was subsequently cancelled.

A statement from Messe Düsseldorf, the host venue of boot Düsseldorf, read: “Due to the spread of the Omicron virus variant, further restrictions will apply in North Rhine-Westphalia with the adjustment of the Covid Protection Ordinance from 30th December, among other things at public trade fairs. This also affects boot Düsseldorf, which as a supra-regional leisure fair may not take place in 2022 due to the measures decided by the state government.”

Next year’s boot Düsseldorf is set for the week beginning January 21st, 2023.

Messe Düsseldorf outlines how ticket holders can proceed: “Tickets purchased for boot 2022 will lose their validity. For a refund of the purchase price, please contact the respective point of sale. eTickets purchased at the boot ticket shop will be refunded automatically. For organisational reasons, this can take up to three weeks. If you have any questions, please contact Messe Düsseldorf Ticket Service.”
