METS Trade offering early bird special

Exhibitors who know they are planning to exhibit at the Metstrade Show in 2018 can take advantage of reduced booking fee until March 1. Show organizers say that last year, 95 percent of the floor space for the 2017 show was booked by the time that event’s special offer had expired. The 2018 show will take place Nov. 13-15.

“For our exhibitors, joining the Metstrade Show is a great way of getting and staying in touch with their target audience and keeping up-to-date with the global marine industry,” said RAI Amsterdam’s Maritime Metstrade director Irene Dros in a statement. “After all, no other event offers the same opportunities in terms of lead generation, brand awareness and product promotion.”

In addition to the financial savings, exhibitors who book early are more likely to have special requests for locations honored. Metstrade is the largest international show for materials and systems for the recreational pleasureboat industry. It’s organized by RAI Amsterdam in association with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations and includes the SuperYacht Pavilion, the Marina & Yard Pavilion and the Construction Material Pavilion.
