Located in Hall 11, British Marine’s Showcase stand (Stand 11 H.75) has become a prime destination for international boaters looking for the latest in British innovation and high-quality services and is the ideal platform for brands looking to enter the European market. Members on the Showcase stand this year will include Clearwater Rating Ltd, Kingfisher Yacht Ropes, Farécla Products Limited, Iris Innovations Limited, PRP Optoelectronics Ltd, Seaglaze Group, Seasmart Marine Limited and the Chelsea Magazine Company, as well as returning exhibitor, BHG Marine Ltd.

In addition, British Marine will be hosting ‘BRITS@Boot’ at the Show, a new networking reception supported by the Department for International Trade (Germany). Taking place on Tuesday 22 January between 4:30pm-6:00pm at the British Marine Showcase stand, UK marine business and international buyers and distributors are invited to join together to talk business. During the event, the British Marine team and Department for International Trade advisors from the British Embassy in Berlin will be available for invaluable one-to-one discussions.
Lesley Robinson, Chief Executive Officer at British Marine, commented: “With the thriving international boating market, it is great to see so many home-grown brands eager to exploit the sales platform boot Düsseldorf offers to grow exports and showcase British craftsmanship and expertise at this time of year.
“As the leading trade association for the UK industry, we look forward to welcoming an array of visitors across the nine days to our popular Showcase stand and are working with organisers to develop additional opportunities for members at future events.”
