NMMA Canada reports growth in METS pavilion

NMMA Canada provided a platform for members to showcase their products in the Canadian Pavilion.

A strong group of Canadian equipment manufacturers returned to exhibit this year in the Canadian Pavilion at the METS Trade Show in Amsterdam.

The show again reached record attendance from previous years.

NMMA Canada provided a platform for members to showcase their products in the Canadian Pavilion.

“This year we saw the addition of two new companies in the pavilion — Mustang Survival and Xantrex Battery,” NMMA Canada president Sara Anghel wrote in a newsletter. “In addition, we had some members outside the pavilion, like Deep Trekker, who will look to join us next year, and Advantec Global made its debut within the Super Yacht Pavilion.”

Both thought the show was a strong platform to showcase Canadian products, she said.

The exhibitors also had the opportunity to meet with Canadian Embassy staff. Judith Baguley, trade commissioner, Embassy of Canada, and Sameena Qureshi, senior trade commissioner, walked the show and spoke with the Canadian exhibitors.

NMMA Canada plans to submit an application for funding for the 2017 METS Trade Show through the international trade export program.
