The MYP 2015 NETHERLANDS: Make plans for the Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP) at METS, Amsterdam, 17th-19th November 2015. The MYP 2015 looks set to be another success, with more exhibitors and a new-style programme under development for The Marina & Yard Stage. Aside from excellent networking opportunities, it will also be a great chance to find out more about the ICOMIA World Marina Conference (WMC) 2016, which will dovetail with METS next year. “RAI Amsterdam will be the place to be for the worldwide marina industry in 2016 when we feature the MYP at METS and WMC 2016,” says maritime domain manager, Irene Dros. “Having so many marina professionals gathered together offers unique networking and business opportunities. Add in a high quality information programme with top level professionals from across the marine industry and it’s clear why these are unmissable events for exhibitors, visitors and attendees alike.” Exhibitors keen to keep up to speed with the latest technology will be looking forward to this year’s METS Breakfast Briefing keynote. Peter Sander, manager emerging technologies and concepts at Airbus Industries will speak on ‘additive layer manufacturing’ or, more simply, 3D printing. He will discuss the opportunities and challenges this brings for future design and industrial production. Design is always at the forefront of the METS focus and 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the prestigious DAME Design Award METS. All exhibitors can enter new products, provided they will be on display at the 2015 show.
