Meet industry professionals in a unique face-to-face trade-only environment
And gain access to the latest products and innovations
The Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) confirmed its status as the world-leading B2B event of its kind this week in Amsterdam RAI. A record number of 21,086 visitors were welcomed by a record number of 1358 exhibitors. Crucially, early results of the post-show surveys prove that visitors and exhibitors alike were pleased with the results of the three-day event. METS also attracted 6.5% more international visitors and 3% more decision-makers.
The DAME Jury is always on the look out for clever
design solutions that challenge the status quo to
deliver obvious improvements for boat owners and
builders. There were several examples this year but
the standout winner was Jefa’s Steering Traveller.
This product removes the need for bulky steering
quadrants and improves rudder feedback at the helm
for twin rudder, twin wheel sailing yachts.
Special attention has been paid to save installation
space and weight as well as to eliminate backlash,
hence improving yacht handling.
The Jury appreciated the elegance of Jefa’s approach
to this application – a commendable example of how
current practice can be examined and redesigned to
produce tangible improvement. Stand 11.333
