  • World's largest exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry Join the market leaders and innovators! metstrade.com EXHIBITOR BROCHURE
  • PREPARING TODAY – FOR TOMORROW Record exhibitor numbers for METS 2009 bucked trends and further endorsed the position of METS as the world’s number one marine equipment trade show. The show grew, in part, because we extended space to incorporate the new RAI Elicium building. After all, a world leading event deserves a world leading venue! A show of excellence By closing halls 6 and 7, relocating to larger halls 9 and 11, and opening the Elicium as the new core of METS, we’ve been able to streamline the exhibition to benefit both exhibitors and visitors. Relocating the SuperYacht Pavilion to a single venue in Hall 10 has also helped to further strengthen this increasingly important show within a show. By extending the METS halls today, we have also allowed for growth tomorrow. A show of efficiency Time is precious and life is fast paced. This is why we aim to make life as easy as possible for exhibitors with our ‘select-a-scheme’ stand packages. We’ve also made access easier for set-up and break-down and improved general access through three entrances at the front of the exhibition building. With more private rooms for meetings, receptions and press launches, we’ve also kept a close eye on your networking needs. A show of hands Our data reveals very high levels of return visitors and exhibitors year on year. What better endorsement? There is no better place to establish face-to-face working relationships with people from all over the world and no better place to view a global gallery of thousands of marine products. There is no better place to launch YOUR products.

  • The DAME turns 20! 2010 is the 20th anniversary of the DAME (Design Award METS), the most prestigious award for product innovation in the world. 2 0 1 0 DAME DESIGN AWARD METS Over the past two decades, several thousand of the most interesting and innovative marine products have been scrutinised by the DAME jury, an independent panel of industry experts. All products submitted have been on display at METS and many were launched at the show. Winning the DAME has brought companies a host of sales and marketing benefits, and devising and sponsoring the DAME has, in turn, ensured that METS has become the leading platform for new product launches. The DAME Awards are presented at the Breakfast Briefing, an annual attraction held for exhibitors and other special guests before show opening time on the first morning of METS. In addition to the awards ceremony, an industry expert gives a special METS keynote address. Guest speakers have included Mr.Paolo Benetti, CEO of Azimut and Mr. Michael Schmidt, CEO of Hanse Yachts. Product gallery METS offers a global gallery of proven and new products – it’s an unrivalled marine equipment showcase. Whether you are looking to buy, sell or distribute, visiting METS is the best way to get a comprehensive market overview. Specialist products can be found in the SuperYacht, Marina Equipment and Composite Pavilions and everything – from propulsion, navigation, construction materials, communications and safety equipment to furniture, fittings, electrical installations, clothing and marine paints – can be found throughout the show. For more detailed overview of all products, we kindly refer to our website metstrade.com. JOIN THE MARKET LEADERS AND INNOVATORS
  • SUPERYACHT PAVILION Super profile The SuperYacht Pavilion (SYP) at METS has grown to become a show in its own right – enjoying all the benefits of METS whilst developing its own distinctive profile. As services as well as products are crucially important to superyacht operation, the SYP is the only part of METS where service providers as well as product manufacturers can exhibit. The SYP attracts a steady stream of vessel designers, builders and superyacht captains and is complemented by the three-day Global Superyacht Forum (GSF). Organised by The Yacht Report Group, the GSF is the leading industry conference that attracts high profile speakers and several hundred delegates. More information can be found in the special SuperYacht Pavilion brochure, available on metstrade.com. Sponsored transport Amsterdam RAI, the Dutch national railway company (NS) and the Amsterdam public transport company (GVB) have joined forces to offer visitors cheaper public transport to METS. Reduced tariffs are offered for journeys to and from every station in the Netherlands and for buses, metro and trams in Amsterdam. The initiative is a great extra service for METS attendees and is good for the environment too! Amsterdam The bright and bustling city of Amsterdam is just 10 minutes away from Amsterdam RAI by public transport. The city offers many cultural sights and dining options. Don’t miss ‘The Masterpieces’ at the Rijksmuseum – a special highlight exhibition of the Golden Age. metstrade.com
