The RAI Amsterdam Convention Center re-opened the 34th METSTRADE show in its full glory from 15th -17th November, bringing together thousands of maritime industry professionals for three days of important networking, research and sales discussions. Over 1,400 exhibitors from 50 countries showcased the latest revolutionary innovations offered by the marine leisure industry in 10 halls. An extensive program with a focus on the environment, technology, development and diversity offered visitors much more than just a tour of the exhibition hall. METSTRADE 2022 was comprehensively reported on by 160 attending members of the marine press, alongside the show’s multi-channel media team.

Recognising the extreme importance of industry recruitment and retention among younger people, 23% of all visiting professionals were in the 18-35 age bracket. Their presence was nurtured and supported through METSTRADE’s Young Professionals Club with its dedicated lounge, industry meet and greet sessions and show tours. Career development was also celebrated by many other initiatives across the show including the sponsored visits by Australian International Marine Export Group (AIMEX) of their 2021 and 2022 Apprentices of the Year and the naming of two very bright Rising Stars from the USA and UK in the IBI-METSTRADE Boat Builder Awards, organised in association with Raymarine.
The organizers recorded 28.480 visitors
In a glittering night under the stars at Amsterdam’s National Maritime Museum, the breadth of the industry’s talent was highlighted including a Lifetime Achievement Award for the founder and CEO of Taiwanese motor yacht manufacturer Horizon Yachts, John Lu, and joint Designer of the Year awards for Tony Castro Yacht Design and Sea Ray’s first ever female design team – Carrie Fodor and Kristin McGinnis.
METSTRADE also saw the welcome full return of associated programmes from partners including the 30th anniversary of the SuperYacht Forum Live, International HISWA Symposium, HISWA Marina Symposium and NMEA. Their conferences featured strong themes around using new technology to appeal to latest generation audiences and creating a more sustainable future.
