Exhibitor space in the SuperYacht Pavilion (SYP) at METS 2013 has completely sold out – even with the expansion of Hall 9.

Over 230 first-time exhibitors will be taking part in this year’s event, which runs from November 19-21 at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre in the Netherlands.

“We are excited that even with the Entry Committee guarding our strict policy, we keep welcoming new blood to the show,” says Sarah Westdijk, product manager METS. “We have 18 country pavilions this year and our successful partnership with the Marine Industry Associations brings in over 470 companies.”

Rens-Jan van Vliet, sales manager METS, adds: “The Construction Material Pavilion and Marina & Yard Pavilion relaunched last year and have taken off with growing exhibitor numbers and a solid speakers programme at the stages.

“METS offers an incredibly broad exhibition programme. Everything you need to build and keep a boat; that is what METS is all about.”

METS is the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international leisure marine industry. It is organised by Amsterdam RAI in association with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA).
