Publish date:

Soundings Trade Only, METSTRADE’s North America-based media partner, is proud to announce that the editorial team will once again be LIVESTREAMING from a studio at stand # 12.331 at the METSTRADE show. Last year, Soundings Trade Only’s editor in chief, Michael Verdon, conducted 32 interviews with industry leaders from around the world. The interviews were viewed by thousands of marine professionals. In addition to the studio interviews, Verdon will broadcast live from the stands of key exhibitors at METSTRADE.

Our livestreaming provides a global perspective of what is happening across multiple markets.”

The interviews may be viewed on Soundings Trade Only’s Facebook page, and on the Trade Only Today E-newsletter. To subscribe to the e-newsletter and/or to the Soundings Trade Only magazine, please visit
