Discover the Highlights of METSTRADE 2021

The world's largest trade show for the leisure marine industry is almost set to open its doors. After not being able to meet in person for almost two years, the 33rd edition of METSTRADE promises to be a special one.

This year METSTRADE is organised as a hybrid event, both online and offline. The virtual platform METSTRADE Connect offers multiple opportunities, whether you are visiting the show in person or joining us online. Browse through exhibitor profiles, see who else is joining, start matchmaking, set-up appointments, watch METSTRADE TV and much more. The matchmaking tool helps you to find valuable business contacts and recommendations based on your profile. For more information, click here.

Get inspired by METSTRADE TV

Finding new ways to share knowledge has never been more important. Live from its TV Studio on the show floor in Amsterdam, the team will host METSTRADE TV. Together with ICOMIA and its media partners, the three-day programme will be focused on the latest trends and developments in the industry. Topics including the DAME Awards, expert panels, superyacht industry and the renowned Sustainability Sessions by Peter Franklin will be available to watch on METSTRADE TV. Best part? The content will be available to the community after the show as well. You can watch METSTRADE TV live on our virtual platform METSTRADE Connect. See the full programme of METSTRADE TV. 

Take a look at the DAME showcases 

This year will be the 30th edition of the DAME Awards. With more than 100 entries, this year’s DAME Awards returns to its usual format with entries across seven categories. This 2021 DAME Design Awards will have added focus on the environment and the jury will award a special Environmental Design Winner certificate to a product that represents the best example among all entries that fits the DAME criteria in an impressively sustainable way. Products that the jury considers to be exceptional, but do not win the award in their category, will be given a Special Mention.

All DAME nominees and winners will be presented at the DAME pavilion in Hall 6, so don’t forget to take a look at these innovations and to tune in to METSTRADE TV for interesting insights from the DAME winners.

Visit the specialised pavilions 

One of the ways in which the METSTRADE Show raised the bar for maritime exhibitions over the past decade was by introducing ‘shows within a show’ for specific sectors. Be sure to pay a visit to the pavilions at METSTRADE 2021, including:

The SuperYacht Pavilion

Are you working in the superyacht industry? Then The SuperYacht Pavilion is your go-to pavilion. Located in Hall 7, the central platform is dedicated to suppliers of products and services to the luxury yacht market.

Construction Material Pavilion

For innovative yacht builders, naval architects and interior designers, there is the Construction Material Pavilion, a comprehensive materials showcase and information resource, in the Europa Foyer.

Marina & Yard Pavilion

The Marina & Yard Pavilion is the world’s largest concentration of exhibitors from the marine and yard industry in a B2B environment. Playing host to marina owners, yards, operators, developers and suppliers from around the world, this year you can find it in the Elicium.

Country Pavilions

Same as previous METSTRADE shows, the Country Pavilions are a strong element of the exhibitor base. METSTRADE 2021 features an impressive total of 17 countries represented in 26 pavilions from Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Slovenia, South Korea, Sweden, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.
