In parallel with the Global Superyacht Forum, the RAI Amsterdam will once again play host to METSTRADE, the world’s largest marine leisure international business to business forum. With more than 1,360 exhibitors from over 40 countries, delegates can expect the usual high standard of product launches, seminars and delegate networking.

In order to celebrate and highlight the very best of marine ingenuity, METSTRADE is always accompanied by the annual DAME awards. This year welcomes the 25th instalment of the prestigious awards. With a 10-person independent panel, the DAME awards offers impartial judgement on products within categories ranging from marine electronics to clothing accessories.

A number of the products nominated for DAME awards have already been featured across The Superyacht Group portfolio.

In the ‘deck equipment, sails and rigging’ category NautiBuoy’s popular and well documented multi-functional inflatable platforms are set to make a splash. Toeing the line between work and play the NautiBuoy platform is a practical tool for superyacht crews, aiding maintenance tasks and avoiding jet-ski collisions, as well as being a comfortable and customisable bathing platform for owners and guests.

Beyond the products, METSTRADE will be running a number of seminars aimed at tackling some of the leisure marine industries’ meatiest issues.
