Stand space at the Marine Equipment Trade Show and the SuperYacht Pavilion, set for Nov. 15-17 in Amsterdam, is virtually sold out well ahead of schedule, organizers said.

Online visitor registration is now open to professionals in the industry.

“We feel extremely encouraged to have sold 97 percent of METS and 92 percent of the SYP with many weeks still to go before the 2011 event opens its doors,” Sarah Westdijk, product manager, METS/SYP, said in a statement.

“Any companies still hoping to exhibit should contact us immediately for the best chance of securing the small amount of remaining stand space,” she added. “With our visitor campaign starting today and visitors from all over the world registering every day for a show that will be at full exhibitor capacity, it looks like we’re in for a truly fantastic METS/SYP 2011.”
