If there’s one place where you can catch all the marine industry’s innovation and get the latest updates on what’s new and trending, it’s METSTRADE.
Early indicators for the 2022 show are very positive, with 96 per cent of visitors and 90 per cent of exhibitors declaring their intention to return. Marine industry associations are experiencing significant uptake for national pavilions, and METSTRADE is receiving many first-time applications, particularly from electric propulsion and electronics companies.
Here is an exclusive sneak peak of the comprehensive content programme:
Electric aircraft visionary to deliver keynote speech
TED Fellow and ICAS Aerospace Innovation Award recipient, Cory Combs will deliver the Breakfast Keynote Speech at the METSTRADE show on 15 November 2021.

The next 30 years of superyachts
Industry leaders, decision-makers and influencers from around the world will assemble for a series of strategic meetings and workshops focused on the overarching theme of ‘Evolve or Repeat’. The theme for the flagship event in Amsterdam marks an evolution of the superyacht industry’s premier educational and networking platform.
This year’s programme will bring together six incredible visionary keynote sessions from technology experts outside of yachting in the world of aerospace, automotive, energy, architecture and future materials. Expect energetic networking sessions, experiential activities, a streamlined, focused programme, and of course the much-missed social programme to celebrate the key milestone of the show’s 30th-anniversary.
