The organisers of the SuperYacht Pavilion at METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam have announced the addition of a third hall within the RAI convention centre, including a new networking area called the Shipyard.
The new third hall will have the same sophisticated style and flow for which the SuperYacht Pavilion is renowned, with stands around the Shipyard which is sure to become a key port of call for visitors seeking networking opportunities.
“Our decision to expand was made because we recognise how much the extra companies will contribute to the pavilion programme in terms of innovation.” said Irene Dros, RAI Amsterdam’s Director Maritime. “We have also responded to increasing requests from the industry for more networking space in general, and for places where custom yards can host meetings in privacy.”
This year project meeting rooms will be available for hire by custom superyacht builders, employing strict entrance criteria and advance guest lists, avoiding the need for external meeting rooms so key decision makers can remain on the show floor.
