CASTRIES, St Lucia -- The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) will be participating as a collective at the Boot Düsseldorf Boat Show, which will run from January 23-31, 2016.

After two successful joint promotional activities in the United States and Canada, respectively, the OECS Commission is once again coordinating the joint representation of the OECS in the European market.

This decision was taken in response to requests from member states to increase the visibility of the region in the European market.

The Düsseldorf International Boat Show, commonly known as Boot Düsseldorf, is highly regarded among the world’s premier boat shows and dubbed: “The world’s biggest boat and water sports trade fair”.

With some 1,700 exhibitors from over 50 countries, this professional trade fair is considered a benchmark for the international boat and water sports industry, showcasing state of the art developments in the yachting sector.

Dr Loraine Nicholas, the tourism officer at the OECS Commission, said the OECS collective participation at the Boot Düsseldorf boat show this weekend is part of the OECS common tourism policy, which is at its advance stage of implementation.

The 47th Boot Düsseldorf International Boat Show will be held at the Duesseldorf Exhibition Centre in Messe Düsseldorf, Germany.
