Bustling METS Sets New Attendance Records


The Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS), the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry.

As the show closes for this year so it confirms its status as the world-leading B2B event of its kind

Last year 20,500 visitors attended but this year a record number of 21,086 visitors were welcomed by a record number of 1358 exhibitors an number up from last years 1,320.

Crucially, early results of the post-show surveys prove that visitors and exhibitors alike were pleased with the results of the three-day event. METS also attracted 6.5% more international visitors and 3% more decision-makers.

As the global marine industry got down to business together the exhibition floor was a hive of activity and the three pavilions dedicated to superyachts, marinas and construction materials.

For next years show 62% of the stand floor space has already been booked for METS 2015 which will be held from 17 to 19 November.

METS is organised by Amsterdam RAI in association with ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations).

The show’s target groups are yacht builders, naval architects, repair yards, distributors, dealers, wholesalers, captains, marina operators and equipment manufacturers from around the world.
