Gala night of boats and classic cars:
The best of two worlds
BOOT & FUN BERLIN and MOTORWORLD Classics Berlin to take place concurrently for the first time, inviting visitors to a thrilling journey through time.
Berlin, August 15, 2019 – On November 20-24, 2019, Motorworld Classics Berlin and BOOT & FUN Berlin will be taking place concurrently for the first time in the Berlin exhibition halls in the shadow of the radio tower, offering visitors a unique multi-trade fair. The joint opening event on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, which starts at 6 p.m., will offer a truly special highlight right at the beginning of the trade fairs. Visitors to the gala night of boats and classic cars will be able to immerse themselves in 1920s’ Berlin.
Between classic cars, classics-to-be, classic motorcycles, yachts, boats, muscle-powered water sports, retro toys, fashion and accessories, fire-eaters, artists and musicians will take visitors with them back to the untamed Berlin of 100 years ago. A magical world with fascinating bars and dim cabarets will be created here. The trade fair team and numerous exhibitors will be dressed in nostalgic costumes in keeping with the theme. Visitors who attend this evening in retro look will be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine.
From the roots of mobility to the present day
Over the four days, the classic car trade fair together with the boat and leisure fair will take the public on a journey back through time and offer an unprecedented combination. The fifth edition of Motorworld Classics Berlin is much more than a car show with exhibits from the past. With the unique ambience of the imposing historic halls in the northern part of Berlin’s ExpoCenter, and with shoeshiners, barbers and walking acts entertaining visitors with jazz and swing music, it is more of a lifestyle event and an excursion into the past.
In keeping with the look and feel of Motorworld Classics Berlin, the crossover to BOOT & FUN BERLIN will be the classics hall of the boat and leisure trade fair. Here, visitors will be able to see an unrivalled collection of classic boats made of wood, chrome and riveted steel, such as Riva and Boesch, as well as exhibits from long forgotten shipyards like Engelbrecht or Beelitz. From here, they enter the modern and light-flooded halls in the southern part of the ExpoCenter, which accommodates maritime mobility of the present day. For the first time, premium-quality yachts from renowned shipyards such as Beneteau, Cranchi, Delphia, Greenline, Jeanneau and Prestige will be on show in the new Hub27 exhibition hall. The journey through time is thus also reflected in the architecture of the halls. The extensive assortment of different boats is complemented by the areas Angling World, Water Sports, Equipment and Accessories, as well as AUTOTAGE BERLIN and Camping & Caravan, in ten other halls.
