Safe, successful, global and realistic NETHERLANDS: Metstrade 2021 – 16 th -18 th November – will be a genuinely hybrid event including three days of live broadcasts via the all-new Metstrade TV. Organised in accordance with RAI’s stringent COVID-19 protocol and working with the EU’s Digital COVID Certificate (DCC), RAI Amsterdam will be a safe venue. “The main goal of RAI Amsterdam and our partner ICOMIA is to create a safe, successful and realistic gathering of the leisure marine industry,” says Metstrade director Niels Klarenbeek. “The enormous appetite among exhibitors and visitors to come together again in Amsterdam has been both inspiring and humbling.” Exhibitor applications topped the 1,300 mark. “We see hardly any changes in terms of participation from all across Europe and North America. Exhibitors from other markets are being very creative to ensure representation on the exhibition floor, underlining the fact that Metstrade 2021 will be a truly global show again.” Due to the pandemic, this year’s event will be held in the Europa Complex (Halls 1-7) of RAI Amsterdam. This means a temporary one-year floor plan but still enables the organisers to welcome almost as many exhibitors as the record-breaking 2019 show. In addition to the country pavilions, specialist pavilions such as the Marina & Yard Pavilion will be suitably accommodated. The Superyacht Forum will take place from 15 th -17 th November and other partners like HISWA- RECRON, Global Marina Institute and NMEA also intend to organise events. A second stream of visitors will have the opportunity to access Metstrade from their homes or offices via the Connect platform. This online participation will be significantly enhanced by the introduction of Metstrade TV, broadcast live and on the internet from a special studio in Hall 6. Pernille La Lau, who successfully anchored the virtual Metstrade event last December, will host a wide variety of programmes over the three days of the exhibition. These will include WORLD NEWS Coral Sea wins service award AUSTRALIA: Coral Sea Marina Resort was awarded Superyacht Industry Service Provider of the Year at the ASMEX Australian Marine Industry Awards 2021.

The Metstrade Connect platform will enable everyone to see who is joining and easily connect with them, prior to, during, and after the event. Attendees can make personal agendas, set up appointments and enjoy a livestream of Metstrade TV. “Taken as a whole, all these innovative tools and content will ensure exhibitors and visitors alike gain maximum efficiency from their visit to Amsterdam,” adds Klarenbeek. “There is a tangible desire within the industry to meet in person and discuss issues they’ve experienced, such as disrupted supply chains. We know the audience requires the proper tools to make the most of their trip and both the RAI and the Metstrade team are doing everything in their power to deliver them.” – July/August 2021 13
