Tickets for the first Boat Builder Awards for business achievement are now available.

The gala dinner, organized by International Boating Industry and METSTrade, is sponsored by Raymarine and will take place Nov. 18 at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.

Tickets can be purchased online.

The Boat Builder Awards are designed to recognize individual and team success within boatbuilding companies globally across six categories of business achievement: retail marketing, boatbuilder international distributor/dealer development, boat builder & equipment manufacturer collaborative solution, innovative on-board design solution, innovation in a production process and lifetime achievement.

Nominations can be made here.

Luxury canal boats will be available for boarding directly from the RAI exhibition center, transporting attendees from METS to the Maritime Museum for a reception in the glass-roofed Open Courtyard.

The awards will be presented after a three-course dinner.
