A new conference at METS will address properly recycling old boats.

The inaugural Future of Yacht Recycling conference in Amsterdam has unveiled its program.

The one-day conference will address the main issues in the environmentally responsible dismantling and recycling of old boats.

The conference will be held on Nov. 16 in RAI Amsterdam, the day before METS — the Marine Equipment Trade Show — gets underway.

It also will feature a dedicated exhibition area where specialist contractors, suppliers and advisers can discuss their products and services with delegates and trade visitors from all sectors of the yachting industry.

The conference agenda will consist of key topics that focus on the technical/ commercial challenges and the significant opportunities presented by what has become known as “end-of-life boats.”

Powered by METS and technically supported by ICOMIA, the conference will be staged by Quaynote Communications in partnership with YachtMedia and will form part of the annual METS event.
