International Breakfast Meeting

boot Düsseldorf & European Boating Industry
are pleased to invite you to their flag event IBM, under the theme:
Charter boats – a booming business and its challenges


boot Düsseldorf and European Boating Industry are proud to announce that the fourth edition of their “International Breakfast Meeting” (IBM) will be held at the boat show on Tuesday, 22 January 2019 from 8:45 to 10:30.
The “International Breakfast Meeting” was developed to answer the visitors’ need to combine a commercial presence at the largest indoor boat show with getting the latest news on regulatory or market developments worldwide. And this is what the breakfast session will continue to do - providing in 2 hours the industry intelligence and updates - that most exhibitors and journalists are looking for, allowing them at the same time to meet and network with peers.

In 2019, the International Breakfast Meeting will focus on the booming business of charter boats, and on its challenges. At the event Petros Michelidakis, Director of boot Düsseldorf , Robert Marx, President of boot Düsseldorf and Piero Formenti, President of European Boating Industry, will welcome the participants and introduce the panel as well as the topics.
Josie Tucci, Vice President Sales and Marketing at The Moorings and Sunsail, will address how the chartering business is impacting boatbuilders as they adapt and fit the specific needs of the chartering business in terms of equipment and demands of their customers. Moreover, representatives from the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the European Commission will discuss the lack of recognition between the national qualifications of professional skippers and how this constraints the charter market's potential.

The details of the programme with the full list of speakers will be announced, soon. In the meantime, please keep visiting and websites to stay tuned.

Yours sincerely,
The boot Düsseldorf Team
