boot Düsseldorf International Breakfast Meeting

The next annual International Breakfast Meeting (IBM) at boot Düsseldorf will be held in person, after being held virtually in 2021 due to covid restrictions.

The main topics on the table for the seventh edition of IBM, held at boot Düsseldorf on 25 January 2022, will be the EU’s new trade policy and the supply chain challenges that are affecting the boating sector.

Organisers boot Düsseldorf and the European Boating Industry (EBI) have confirmed discussions will take place under the title “international trade opportunities and supply chain challenges”.

Panelists from business and politics will discuss solutions to the supply chain constraints currently impacting the recreational boating industry, based on best practices from other sectors, and identify opportunities for the boating sector in the coming years.

Visitors from trade, industry and journalists are invited to participate in the event, which takes place 9am-10.30am.

Readers can register for IBM 2022 and find out further details about the event online.

The 2021 edition of IBM, held online, was attended by 220 participants and included European Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevičius – marking the first time a European Commissioner participated in the event.

“IBM 2022 will be an excellent opportunity to reflect on the status of the industry and discuss with experts and policy-makers the current most pivotal developments and challenges in international trade,” says project director of boot Düsseldorf Petros Michelidakis.

Philip Easthill, secretary-general of EBI adds: “Policy developments in international and European trade policy have been posing key challenges not only for the recreational boating industry, but for many other sectors as well. EBI is looking forward to work again with its partner boot Düsseldorf to bring together different voices and expertise at IBM 2022 for the benefit of the industry and find common solutions.”
