Pre-Metstrade dinner to focus on EU business climate

The National Marine Manufacturers Association and the U.S. Commerce Department are hosting a dinner in Amsterdam on Nov. 13, the night before the Metstrade show opens, to discuss strategies for dealing with the evolving business climate in the European Union.

Dubbed Meet B4 METS, the dinner will be held at the Hampshire Hotel-American Amsterdam. The NMMA said those who attend will gain insight into Great Britain’s exit from the European Union and how marine industry companies can leverage the pending changes to their advantage, as well as what companies that have customers in Europe need to know about the EU value-added tax.

Space is limited and an RSVP is required.
