2024 Shows: Where are we heading?
We are very excited to announce that 2024 will be another jam packed calendar of boat and outdoor shows. As always we will host competitions and bring you offers to help you get to the show you’re looking forward to most. Keep your eyes peeled on our newsletters and socials to find out how you can be involved. Read on to find out where we're heading and when.
1. Dusseldorf Boat
20th-28th January - Messe Dusseldorf
After taking a few years out from this show due to a global pandemic, we are thrilled to be back at Dusseldorf, Europe’s largest indoor boat show. It will be the biggest stand we’ve brought to Europe to date, and we look forward to bringing our iconic Rooster shop and showcasing the range to our European customers. The show is an important comeback for Rooster, as the largest gathering of boats in the continent, it's great to be a part of the bustling atmosphere Dusseldorf has to offer. Come and find us in Hall 11, stand 11A04.
2. RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show
24th - 25th February at Farnborough International.
We’re back for our 24th edition of the show! The Dinghy Show is where the UK sailing community kick off their calendar. All your Dinghy friends from across the UK, and sometimes further, gather for one weekend of the year to catch up, check out the latest releases of models and equipment, listen to their sailing idol on stage and stock up on chandlery and gear for the year ahead. As it will be Rooster’s 25th birthday in 2024, there will be some extra special features and competitions available to take part in during the build up to the show and on the stand over the weekend. We want to help you get to next year's show, so we’ll be launching a competition for a family pack of tickets and a Dinghy Show Rooster spending voucher - stay tuned to find out how to get involved over the next few weeks. Come and visit us at stand N40 in February.
3. The National Outdoor Expo
23rd - 24th March at Birmingham’s NEC.
In line with our outdoor industry growth, we are attending one of the UK’s largest outdoor retail shows; bringing together speakers, brands, outdoor enthusiasts and the gear to get you started, all under one roof. Tickets are now available to book online, if you fancy something a little different and to stock up on essentials and hear from the best in the industry for your other loved activities, besides sailing and water sports.
4. The Southampton Boat Show
15th - 24th September, Southampton Waterfront
We’re heading back to Southampton Boat Show for the 23rd time! It’s the show for everyone, whether you’re getting started or you’re visiting as master of the seas, to top up your gear during a week of action packed ocean-lovers paradise. Come and find us in the Dinghy Zone where we will have our stand divided into our Outlet and a retail store. Tickets are already available to purchase for September 2024 at the early bird rate.
5. Annapolis SailBoat Show
10th - 14th October, City Dock, Annapolis, MD
We made our debut with our brand new US trailer shop in 2023, hitting the Annapolis showground running with competitions to win a full kit bag. Meeting our US customers face to face has been invaluable, so in 2024 we’re heading back to the Annapolis waterfront to do it all again. Stop by and catch up with the team, stand number tbc.
We look forward to seeing you, whether you’ll be attending one or two shows or the whole lot…we’re ready to welcome you and help you with your questions and queries on kit for your hobbies. Keep an eye out for competitions to win tickets and much much more, see you very soon!
