METS reports increase in international visitors

The Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam saw a 6.5 percent rise in international visitors this year as 1,358 exhibitors from 48 countries displayed at the Nov. 18-20 event.

METS drew 21,086 visitors from 108 countries, show organizers said.

“Globalization drives business growth, and the global economy was very much in action at METS,” said Irene Dros, maritime domain manager at Amsterdam RAI, which holds the show, in a statement.

“We may live in a digital world, but the event reconfirmed the unrivaled importance of face-to-face meetings in a trade show environment,” Dros said. “METS 2014 has proven that the marine industry is continuing to develop strongly worldwide with this exhibition as a vital hub.”

METS 2015 will be held Nov. 17-19 at the Amsterdam RAI.
