“BOOT TULLN is an excellent trade fair for us. Our customers can find us here and we can maintain our existing customer contacts and of course also make new ones here. We generate a lot of bookings here and meet a wide-ranging target group in the diving hall.”,Christine Gstöttner, fish & trips gmbH
“It is important for Mares and SSI to support a trade fair in Austria, to celebrate diving and to demonstrate how big the sport of diving is, and that one can enjoy good diving in Austria. This is how we support our local dealers. As an SSI training centre, we use this trade fair to provide on-site support to specialist customers. Our sales force, which is responsible for a specific country, finds its end customers as well as its business customers gathered and concentrated here. The combination of the boat fair and diving fair is a very nice combination, as the audience is very well matched.”,Christian Rohde, SSI International GmbH
“We primarily exhibit at BOOT TULLN as a service to our trade partners and would like to be present for our customers in eastern Austria. We can observe a good atmosphere among the visitors. We plan to exhibit again next year.”,Dieter Heinz, Mares S.p.A.
"We ourselves come from Lake Attersee in Upper Austria and for us it is important to make ourselves known in the catchment area of Vienna and Lower Austria. We are a niche provider for technical diving and would like to take up this topic here. For us, BOOT TULLN is a trade fair with charm that is more communicative than other water sports trade fairs. We also anticipate increased demand after the trade fair, as many customers have shown interest. We plan to secure our trade fair appearances here for the next two to three years.“,Michael Würschinger, Attersee Tauchsportservice.
"We are very satisfied, there is a very nice and knowledgeable audience here. Our target group is people of all ages who want to get to know the real Maldives. BOOT TULLN is unique in itself. It also has something to offer the very diverse audience. There isn't just one division here, but the whole package from equipment to training and diving trips.“, Markus Bitz, Shamar Guesthouse&Dive
"BOOT TULLN is the only real water sports fair in Austria with a really good diving section and of course that's very interesting for us. They have exactly the right people here. Our concept is to always bring our partners with us. We did that both at BOOT TULLN and in Friedrichshafen. Overall, it's very nice and familiar here. It's not such a big trade fair overall, yet it all has its charm.", Armin Süss, Taucher.Net
"The trade fair in Tulln in particular is a very familiar fair. PADI is at trade fairs in almost every destination worldwide. But I always notice Austria’s familiar flair when I talk to other regional managers. This starts with the trade fair design in the form of taking care of trade fair workers and we feel really well looked after in Austria because everything follows these small paths. This familiar element is the success of Messe Tulln.", Ernest Turnschek, PADI
"BOOT TULLN has a huge unique selling point for us. It is the most beautiful trade fair that we do. We are very happy to be here in Tulln. Everything is very friendly and uncomplicated and we have many nice customers here. We now have a reputation here in Austria. Accordingly, customers come to us specifically. They book trips with us and buy from us. Our dry suit diving package is very well received.", Christian Wendt, Atlantis Berlin
"The special thing for us in Tulln is that it is the largest water sports trade fair in Austria and that we can also directly serve the eastern flank of our German-speaking countries. Our customers come here, especially from Lower Austria, the Vienna region, but also Styria and Carinthia. We can finally serve these customers on site.
BOOT TULLN does very well because the catchment area is very good and above all different. In a positive sense, the support in the run-up here at the trade fair is also significantly different than at other trade fairs. The right people are definitely here. We notice that a lot of customers come looking for certain things. We also notice that there are more crowds. After the Covid years, people are hungry for travel, people want to get out again and people are willing to spend more money if they can have a really nice trip.", Werner Thiele, WATERWORLD - Werner Thiele KG
"This is our premiere. This is our first time in Tulln as an exhibitor. But we had also heard a lot of good things beforehand. This means that BOOT TULLN will definitely be in the portfolio for the next few years.", Aleksandra Gagarinova, Medical Helpline Worldwide GmbH - aqua med
"We are happy to be at Messe Tulln. It's quite familiar. Everyone knows each other. It's networking and that's quite a lot of fun. You see a lot of old faces, but there are also a few young ones.
Of course, it's important to be present. The internet is all well and good and also important, but people still want to get a feel for the products from time to time, talk to the manufacturers and get in contact. I think that exhibiting at trade fairs is important and that will continue to be important in the future.", Helmut Hubalek, Custom Diving Systems
"For the first time, BOOT TULLN is the best-organised trade fair in this sector. As a Swedish company, Austria is very close to our hearts. That's why it's a trade fair where we appreciate working. The interesting thing for us as a diving suit manufacturer is that we have more or less the same conditions in Sweden as we have here in Austria.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday are very good trade fair days. And it also shows that the divers, who are interested in diving, are now finally allowed out again after a three-year break. Finally being able to talk to people face-to-face again and not just rely on internet contacts. This is well received and that is why we are satisfied here at the trade fair.", Uwe Edmund, Waterproof Diving GmbH
