The NMMA said USA Pavilion exhibitors have confirmed their return to the METS Trade Show at unprecedented levels and the USA Pavilion is almost full.

Stand location to new exhibitors is assigned on a first-come basis, and only two stands are still available, the National Marine Manufacturers Association said.

Priority and beneficial pricing will be given to NMMA members.

METS draws more than 22,000 visitors annually and takes place every November at the RAI Exhibition Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Attendees include yacht and boat builders, naval architects, repair yards, distributors, captains, marina developers and equipment manufacturers from around the world who return year after year.

The NMMA is again offering the opportunity for U.S. manufacturers to exhibit at METS at the USA Pavilion in Hall 12.

“The NMMA staff are excellent at providing the best support that I’ve ever had at a trade show,” first-time exhibitor, NMMA member and Si-Tex Marine president Ted Bodtmann said in a statement. “We had a great show with 35 leads to follow up on and we’ll definitely be back in 2017.”
