Final figures from the 2010 Marine Equipment Trade Show, which ran Nov. 16-18 in Amsterdam, show that a record 261 first-time exhibitors took part in this year's event, in addition to a record number of overall exhibitors - 1,320 from 41 countries.

"The show was fresh and lively, with a strong sense of optimism," METS senior product manager Irene Dros said in a statement. "There was a definite mood amongst exhibitors that corners were being turned and that progress was firmly back on the agenda."

"A modest, but nonetheless noticeable, rise in attendance - 18,861 visits for 2010 from 94 countries, versus 18,454 in 2009 - endorsed the significance international visitors place in attending METS/SYP," she added. "We see this as an incredibly positive sign that 2011 will be a brighter year for many."

METS and the SuperYacht Pavilion 2011 will be held Nov. 15-17 in Amsterdam.
