Companies wishing to book stand space at METS and the SuperYacht Pavilion 2012 should reserve space by March 1 in order to qualify for the early-bird discount and save as much as 15 percent, organizers announced.

METS, set for Nov. 13-15 in Amsterdam, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

“Already over 800 exhibitors have committed to prime stand locations, eager to be part of the 25th METS,” METS senior product manager Irene Dros said in a statement. ”We really urge companies to book space as early as possible so as to avoid disappointment and make their participation even more cost-effective.”

Interested parties should check out the application procedure on metstrade.com as soon as possible to obtain their discount.

METS, the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international recreational marine industry, is organized by Amsterdam RAI in association with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations.
