For many years, the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Canada has been leading the charge for the Canadian Pavilion at METSTRADE, connecting the global marine industry with Canadian marine manufacturers we are proud to announce that we are again hosting a solid group of companies in the Canadian Pavilion during METSTRADE 2016. This year, the Canadian Pavilion will feature two new exhibitors, and is prominently featured next to the USA Pavilion in Hall 12.
As a result of the value Canadian exhibitors see in METS, in 2015, we were fortunate to receive a Canadian Government Grant, helping to fund their presence at the show. In addition, we have worked closely with the Canadian Embassy in the Netherlands to support Canadian exhibitors. What’s more, Canada recently signed a free trade agreement with the European Union, which is expected to help us attract more Canadian exhibitors to METS in the years to come.
The Canadian Pavilion is prominently positioned beside our USA Pavilion in Hall 12 we have two new exhibitors:
