METS early-bird deadline is next week

The early-bird booking deadline for METS Trade Show floor space is March 1.

The early-bird booking deadline for METS Trade Show floor space is March 1, and organizers said that last year more than 95 percent of the space was booked by the time the early-bird exhibitor offer expired.

Companies that intend to exhibit at METS in November can benefit from an early-bird discount of as much as 15 percent if they book by March 1.

“Making a booking now does not only make good economic sense,” RAI Amsterdam Maritime METS Trade manager Irene Dros said in a statement. “Companies with wishes for a specific location or area are also highly recommended to book stand space before March 1 so we can do our best to accommodate their requirements.”

“We expect to have again sold the vast majority of the show floor space by the time the early-bird deadline is reached,” said Rens-Jan van Vliet, maritime product manager for METS Trade at RAI Amsterdam. “Moreover, there has already been a growth in the national pavilion areas run by different MIAs, compared to previous years. There is much to look forward to at the METS Trade 2017 Show.”

The 2017 show will run from Nov. 14-16.
