www.marinaworld.com – May/June 2021 WORLD NEWS Going live in Amsterdam NETHERLANDS: RAI Amsterdam and its partner ICOMIA plan a safe, successful in-person Metstrade 2021 in Amsterdam from 16 th -18 th November. Over 1,100 exhibitors have already signed up. “It has been encouraging to witness the drive and enthusiasm among exhibitors, partners and visitors to ensure Metstrade 2021 takes place,” said Metstrade director Niels Klarenbeek. “The leisure boating sector has withstood the pandemic storm well as people have embraced the outdoor lifestyle. We have been seeing an exceptionally positive vibe from across the industry. On the other hand, the industry has been facing unprecedented distribution challenges. Leisure marine professionals are eager to get to Metstrade this November to meet, do business and to overcome certain obstacles in their supply chains.” Klarenbeek and his team recognise there may still be challenges with international travel from some countries this November. To ensure LMA to host no one is left out, Metstrade 2021 will be boosted with a digital package from the RAI studios. This will include a strong online Metstrade Connect programme with awards ceremonies, pitches, panel discussions and networking options. Plans have been put in place to address multiple scenarios. The 2021 show will feature a one-year-only floor plan to enable it to take place in halls one to seven and the Elicium building. The result will be a secure, easy-tonavigate trade event. A one-time specific exception to the ‘manufacturer-only’ policy is also being made. Non-European manufacturers can have their stands manned by their authorised European distributors or representatives. This will ensure that top products from all around the globe are on display. IWMC 2021 UAE: P&O Marinas has handed over its role as host of the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference 2021 (IWMC 2021) to the newly-formed Leisure Marine Association MENA (LMA). The much-anticipated event is scheduled to take place 12 th -14 th October at the Address Dubai Marina. The conference will discuss the lessons learned during the pandemic as well as focusing on future leisure, social and economic trends and how they impact on marinas. IWMC 2021 also aims to encourage the development of the local and regional traditional leisure sailing tourism industry, while ensuring the best practices in terms of sustainability are followed. John W R Paul, chairman of LMA, commented: “It is a proud moment for us to take up the baton from P&O Marinas as the host of IWMC 2021. LMA was formed after years of diligent work by marine industry professionals who solely focused on representing and supporting the maritime industry in the UAE and the region. We are certain that through our association with IWMC and the expertise we possess, we can make a difference in the industry.” Udo Kleinitz, secretary general ICOMIA, said: “The formation of LMA itself was a welcome move for the industry as associations are integral for the industry’s success. ICOMIA is delighted to see LMA now take on leadership in organising IWMC under its auspices.” “P&O Marinas has been instrumental in bringing IWMC to Dubai and in laying out the preparations for IWMC so far. We are mindful of the extra work required due to the COVID-forced postponement of the initially planned 2020 event and thank P&O Marinas for their continued commitment,” he continued. “The handover of IWMC from P&O to LMA shows how industry needs to be united to progress and grow – globally, but moreover when dealing with government bodies.” 7 THE THE #1 #1 MARINA THE #1 BUILDER.
