MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin meets BOOT & FUN
Mobility on land and water
On November 20-24, 2019, visitors will be offered, hall after hall, an exceptional experience between historic automobiles and classic boats. This year, for the first time the classic car trade fair MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin will be taking place parallel to the BOOT & FUN BERLIN boat and leisure trade fair in the exhibition halls in the shadow of the radio tower. The two events will bring together mobility on roads and waterways at Berlin’s exhibition centre.
As of this year, the merger of BOOT & FUN and MOTORWORLD Classics will combine movement by boat and car. This gives visitors the opportunity to comfortably immerse themselves in new experience worlds between precious wood panelling, glistening car paintwork and polished chrome.
The best of both worlds
“The world of classic mobility on land and thrilling exhibits of mobility on water under one roof – that’s a perfect combination,” says Meike Poweleit of MOTORWORLD. “There are numerous interfaces between boats and automobiles for both visitors and exhibitors,” explains Daniel Barkowski, project manager of BOOT & FUN at Messe Berlin. “Visitors with petrol in their blood will be enthralled by the combination of historic boats and automobiles,” enthuses Barkowski.
The classic car trade fair MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin is not just an event for vehicle lovers and collectors. With its distinctive concept, it also provides interesting information for trade visitors and entertainment for a wide audience. Alongside the extravagant classic cars and the unique ambience of MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin, this year’s special exhibition of cars sporting a classy Erdmann & Rossi body will be an exceptional highlight for automobile fans.
BOOT & FUN BERLIN presents an impressive variety of brands and models in the centre of Europe’s largest inland and water sports region. The spectrum ranges from stylish motorboats to spectacular sailing yachts and impressive houseboats. Here, water sports enthusiasts can round off the end of the season, and learn about the latest trends for the coming season, as well as fashionable forms of water sport. From wakeboarding, diving, fly fishing and SUP yoga, through to kayaking and canoeing, everything can be experienced live at the fair. In the BOOT & FUN classics hall, visitors can revel in an unrivalled collection of classic exhibits made of wood, chrome and riveted steel, such as Riva and Boesch, as well as from long forgotten shipyards like Engelbrecht or Beelitz.
Both fairs will commence in an atmospheric evening setting. The opening events “Lange Nacht der Oldtimer” and the “Gala der Boote” will both be taking place from 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
The best of both worlds is also reflected in the architecture of the exhibition halls. Accordingly, the fifth edition of MOTORWORLD Classics will be taking place in the historically impressive halls in the northern section of Berlin’s ExpoCenter, while BOOT & FUN will be accommodated in the modern, light-flooded halls in the southern area.
