ExpoForum presented the Baltic Marine Festival in Germany

ExpoForum presented the project, The Baltic Sea Festival, at exhibition of yachts and powerboats Boot 2012 in Dusseldorf from the 21st to the 29th of January 2012. Today, Boot is one of largest international projects in the yacht market, and where seventeen thematic pavilions of the exhibition centre Messe D?sseldorf unfurled into an exposition of more than 1600 participants from 62 countries.

 At a joint stand of Russian companies, which was organised by ExpoForum JSC, besides the project, The Baltic Marine Festival, was also presented the shipbuilding enterprises Admiralty Shipyards and Petroset, as well as the famous magazine, Power & Sail Boats.

 Representatives of ExpoForum JSC  have carried out negotiations with the heads of Boot concerning the possibility of further cooperation, and have shown a film highlighting the Baltic Marine Festival, and have received important business contacts. The Baltic Marine Festival participated in a famous exhibition for the first time, and the fact that in 2011 its organiser became ExpoForum JSC  was of particular interest from many players in the yachting market.

 Director of Baltic Marine Festival, Anastasia Kobzeva, noted the main tendencies of the exhibition in Dusseldorf: “Despite the fact that the sector of active recreation and water sports is going through hard times, the organisers have managed to maintain stable indicators for population exposure and attendance. However, the lack of bright premier yachts, small expositions of some important companies, a presentation of a model line in the lower price range, and, most importantly, a plate bearing the inscription: ‘We Speak Russian!’ has shown that European manufacturers have high expectations for the Russian market.”
