RAI Amsterdam has announced the parameters for METSTRADE 2021 which promises to be well-attended by both exhibitors and visitors. METSTRADE 2021 is set to take place from 16-18 November in Amsterdam.
With over 1,100 exhibitors already signed-up, RAI Amsterdam is carefully planning for different scenarios and will be deploying its robust and comprehensive protocol to enable a safe and comfortable return to in-person meetings. The Early Bird deadline for exhibitor registration will end on May 1 and the aim is to complete the allocation of show floor spaces in July.
RAI Amsterdam lays out plans for 2021 edition of METSTRADE
This 2021 edition will feature a layout applicable only to this year’s edition: the floor plan will be adjusted so that the complete event can take place in Halls 1-7 and the Elicium building. Still in line with the confirmed sign-up of exhibitors and accommodating 80% of the net exhibition space at the record breaking 2019 event, the result will be a secure, easy-to-navigate trade show. Exhibitors will be notified about their specific METSTRADE 2021 stand allocation in July.
With some travel restrictions certain to still be in place globally in November, METSTRADE 2021 will be boosted with a digital package from the RAI studios. These will include a strong online METSTRADE Connect programme with awards ceremonies, pitches, panel discussions and networking options.
Niels Klarenbeek, METSTRADE Director, says: “Working closely with our partners and exhibitors, we are confident that these virtual elements can be organised to our renowned qualitative and quantitative standards. Our physical and virtual offerings will create a seamless user experience, offering opportunities to both visitors and exhibitors.”
The METSTRADE show is the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international leisure marine industry. Organised by RAI Amsterdam in association with ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations), it includes three dedicated areas of expertise: the SuperYacht Pavilion, the Marina & Yard Pavilion and the Construction Material Pavilion.
