The Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS), the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry has reported record attendance at this years event.
20,500 visitors attended an increase of nearly 1000 on last year’s attendance with an extra 2 exhibitors taking space this year to bring the total to 1,320
“A rise in attendance of over five percent compared is very good news for the global maritime supply industry,” says METS Domain Manager Irene Dros. “We also had more country pavilions than ever. The various conferences and meetings also attracted huge numbers, adding to the positive vibe and genuine sense of good business being conducted.”
The show is organised each year by Amsterdam RAI in association with ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations and targets yacht builders, naval architects, repair yards, distributors, dealers, wholesalers, captains, marina operators and equipment manufacturers from around the world.
Three dedicated specialist pavilions are part of METS: the SuperYacht Pavilion, the Marina & Yard Pavilion and the Construction Material Pavilion
