Incidences Sails at the Dusseldorf Boot

Friday February 10 2012 Author: Incidences Sails Location: Germany

Known as the largest international event in the sector of sailing and boating, the Boot Show in Düsseldorf took place from 20 to 29 January. Actor in this trade fair for over 12 years, the French sail maker was represented this year by Philippe Touët, sales manager based in La Rochelle, and Albert Schweizer, who became in 2011 the Incidences Sails representative in Germany. After 9 days of exhibition visited by over 246,000 people from 62 different countries *, the objectives of the French sail maker are fully met.

Present on the two largest international exhibitions such as the METS (in Amsterdam in November) and the Boot, Incidences Sails continues to affirm its willingness to enter new markets, as Philippe Touët explained on his return from Germany:  “ it has been 12 years since we participate in the Boot and we are lucky to be present in the Super Yacht France Area. First, it allows us to mix and exchange very closely with the various French companies there but also to reach and enter this market of Super Yacht. Our participation in these exhibitions with international scope allows us to extend the reputation and expertise of the Group outside French borders. "



In this logic, Incidences Sails strengthened its teams last year by acquiring new official agents. In addition to being present in Australia and Ireland, the sail maker benefits from the support of Albert Schweizer to develop its business in Germany and Eastern Europe. This professional with 35 years of experience (manufacturer, designer, consultant for sailboat racing and cruising boats in the world) being moreover a titled sailor, became the flagship of Incidences beyond the Rhine. "Düsseldorf is the largest boat show in the world" began Albert. "During these nine days, we have established excellent relationships with the various stakeholders based in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia, and new connections with potential clients. It's a great showcase for the Group, both for marine professionals and the private sector. "

The appointment is already made for next year, from January 19 to 27, 2013.
