Metstrade reports rising exhibitor numbers

Publish date:

RAI Amsterdam said nearly 1,300 exhibitors have registered for Metstrade 2019 as its “Early Bird” discount period nears a March 1 end.

The company said in a statement that 1,100 exhibitors had rebooked for Metstrade 2019 before last year’s show ended, and nearly 200 more have booked since then.

“We expect to have sold the vast majority of the show floor space by the time the early bird deadline is reached,” said Irene Dros, RAI Amsterdam’s maritime manager, in a statement.

“Making a booking now does not only make good economic sense. Companies with wishes for a specific location or area are also highly recommended to book stand space before 1 March so we can do our best to accommodate their requirements.”

Metstrade will take place Nov. 19-21 at RAI Amsterdam.
