Tickets to attend the 2019 Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement, in association with Raymarine and organised jointly by IBI and METSTRADE, are now available on the awards website. The glittering gala dinner, one of the stand-outs of the industry calendar, will take place once again at the impressive National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam on the evening of November 19, the opening day of METSTRADE 2019.
This year we celebrate the first jubilee of the event as the Boat Builder Awards will be organized for the fifth time. The successful formula praises the hard work of boat builders in 10 different award categories, which ensure that the entire spectrum of boat building will be addressed. An international jury selects the winners out of a large amount of boat builders, nominated through the Boat Builder Award website. Previous winners include: Princess Yachts, Amer Yachts, the Ferretti Group, Sunseeker International, Multiplast, Bavaria Yachts and many more.
Luxury canal boats, complete with onboard refreshments, will be available for boarding directly from RAI Amsterdam after show hours, transporting attendees from the METSTRADE Show to the Maritime Museum in time for a reception under the glass roofed Open Courtyard. Pre-dinner welcome drinks will start at 19.30hrs followed by an evening of spectacular entertainment, fine food, and of course the awards that will be presented throughout the evening.
“Now in our fifth year, this Awards is going to be the biggest and most exciting yet!” proclaimed Irene Dros, Director Maritime, METSTRADE. “As with previous ceremonies we’ll be ringing the changes to offer a new experience, ensuring the 2019 Awards will absolutely dazzling.”
