USA Pavilion at METS nearly sold out

Publish date:

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is urging U.S. marine manufacturers to register for the USA Pavilion at the Marine Equipment Trade Show in Amsterdam. The show is scheduled for Nov. 19-21 at the RAI Exhibition Center.

The NMMA said this is the final opportunity to register for the pavilion, which the association says is the largest country exhibit at the show.

“The USA Pavilion at Mets is the only way to meet with our global customers, suppliers and industry peers in just three days,” Len Nelson, vice president of sales for Absolute Outdoor, said in a statement.

“Each year the USA Pavilion continues to sell out well before the noted deadline, as the popularity of the USA Pavilion continues to grow,” Julie Balzano, senior director of export development for NMMA, said in the statement.
