The Marine Equipment Trade Show is seeking nominations for its Boat Builder and Equipment Manufacturer Collaborative Solution Award, which will be presented at a gala Nov. 18 at the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.

The International Boating Industry-METS Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement are organized jointly by IBI and METSTrade.

Headline sponsor for the event is Raymarine. Category sponsors include Saltwater, Lumishore, Ultraflex, Fusion, Whale and Side-Power.

Sponsored by Ultraflex, the award in the Boat Builder and Equipment Manufacturer Collaborative Solution category recognizes boatbuilders and equipment makers that have worked closely together from a conceptual stage to develop a particular solution to a design predicament or an on-board problem.

Those entering or nominating for this award should be able to demonstrate how they have managed to synchronize their design and production processes in 2014-15 to present tangible results to benefit the boater.
