Having sold out months in advance, the organizers of the SuperYacht Pavilion at this year’s Metstrade Show announced an expansion.
A networking area called the Shipyard will be at the hub of a third hall designed to accommodate exhibitors who would have been unable to profile their latest innovations.
“The waiting list of highly qualified exhibitors for the SuperYacht Pavilion was larger than ever,” said RAI Amsterdam maritime director Irene Dros in a statement. “Our decision to expand was made because we recognize how much the extra companies will contribute to the pavilion program in terms of innovation. We have also responded to increasing requests from the industry for more networking space in general, and for places where custom yards can host meetings in privacy.”
Project meeting rooms for superyacht builders will be set up in the hall. These spaces will have a strict entrance policy and a preselected guest list for people related to the projects, such as designers and naval architects.
