Shutdown until 17 April

As many other companies, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH cannot avoid being affected by the spread of coronavirus. To slow down the pandemic, protect the health of our staff as much as possible, and make the best possible use of the period during which we are unfortunately unable to host any events, we have decided to shut down all operations from 6 until and including 17 April. We will be back to serve you from Monday 20 April. Thank you very much for understanding. And please, stay healthy!

Sincerely yours, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH

Germany's largest in-water boat show


More action, more programme, more maritime atmosphere – visit Germany's largest in-water boat show. There are more than 140 sailing yachts and power boats waiting for you at the 5 star ancora Marina in Neustadt/Holstein on the first weekend in June. Plus the opportunity to try out and maybe buy maritime equipment and accessories, or just to get all the information.

Join in the enthusiasm generated by so many hands-on activities and information events – perfectly tailored for active watersports enthusiasts, newcomers and youngsters. The HAMBURG ancora YACHTFESTIVAL gets under way, under the capable leadership of Hamburg Messe.

Warning about dubious address brokers

Currently, dubious companies try to sell exhibitors visitor lists, hotel rooms or entries in trade fair directories - by telephone or e-mail.

Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH (HMC) never passes on its exhibitor and visitor contact lists to third parties without express consent and has no business relationship whatsoever with these providers.

Our official partner for catalog and media entries as well as digital marketing is Sutter Fair Business (for Seatrade Europe: Informa Markets). All official service partners of the HMC can be found here.
