Year on year, numbers grew, and last year’s event – now known as METSTRADE – attracted 1,471 exhibiting companies and spanned eleven halls. In 2017, METSTRADE celebrates 30 years and, as Marina World closed for press, very limited space was available for what looks set to be another growth spurt. Marina equipment manufacturers, drawn to METS in the early years, found a stronger foothold in 2000 with the Marina World Marina Showcase and in 2002 started to group together in a small pavilion. In 2012, the expanded Marina & Yard Pavilion moved to a more central location in the Europe Foyer and in 2016 – in order to be adjacent to the lecture theatre required for hosting the concurrent ICOMIA World Marinas Conference – it moved to its existing home in Hall 5 (above). Like METSTRADE, year on year MYP numbers have grown, and 62 exhibitors representing 19 countries have committed to date for this year’s event (14th-16th November). For 2017, METSTRADE is introducing a business matchmaking event in the MYP and all marina professionals – visitors and exhibitors – are invited to take part by pre-arranging 30-minute face-to-face meetings. The aim of the initiative is to boost networking and help people meet potential new business partners. Dutch visitors will also take part in the HISWA Jachthaven Symposium, timed again to run along with the MYP, and early birds with an interest in financials can attend a Marina Valuation and Investment Seminar prior to the show opening on Monday 13th November. Organised by the Global Marina Institute (GMI), the Investment Seminar is the first to be held in Europe and follows two successful events run in Australia. The seminar is designed to provide delegates with an update and overview of key developments in the marina sector and significant issues which will influence the marketability and value of marina assets. The seminar will be presented by experts from the marina sector from around the world and feature valuable input from financial and valuation experts. For further information on the Marina Valuation and Investment Seminar email Sarah Dhanda - Marina World is the media partner for the MYP at METSTRADE and media partner for the Global Marina Institute. - September/October 2017 13
