As the largest B2B event for the leisure marine sector prepares to open its doors next week, the 31st edition of the METSTRADE Show is set to be the largest to date. Nearly 1600 exhibitors from 50 different countries will be joined by thousands of visitors from around the world for this year’s exhibition. The METSTRADE Show takes place in the RAI Amsterdam convention centre from Tuesday 13 to Thursday 15 November.
The bustling Dutch capital will be even more lively than usual over the weekend before METSTRADE as exhibitors and conference delegates begin arriving and initiate the first of many meetings.
With major partner events such as The Superyacht Forum and the 50th anniversary edition of the HISWA Symposium on Yacht Design and Construction already starting on the Monday morning, METSTRADE revolves around more than a three-day trade show. The vibrant business vibe spreads well beyond the exhibition halls into the city of Amsterdam, with networking, knowledge exchange nights, awards evenings and various gatherings of marine media and marketing professionals.
