Metstrade organizers said they are accepting entries for the Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement until Oct. 6. Metstrade runs Nov. 16-18 at RAI Amsterdam.

The awards, jointly managed by Metstrade and International Boating Industry and sponsored by Raymarine, recognize the contributions of partners working with boatbuilders globally.

“The enormous appetite among exhibitors and visitors to come together again in Amsterdam has been both inspiring and humbling,” Metstrade director Niels Klarenbeek said in a statement. “Last year’s positive reaction to the online Boat Builder Awards … was a reminder of why it is so important to highlight the critical role of the boatbuilding sector for the whole marine industry.”

The awards will be handed out Nov. 17. Winners will also be featured on Metstrade TV in a special Boat Builder Awards program.
