Amsterdam | 2019, 19 - 21 November

A platform for boat builders, designers, architects and engineers alike

The Construction Material Pavilion, treating the many aspects of marine construction, is dedicated to some topical subjects: the new materials and construction techniques for boats and yachts and the end-of-life of FRP materials: developing industry, a business worth millions of Euros.

The pavilion, stage and showcases together form a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas about marine construction between technicians and yacht designers, across disciplines and countries. The various sessions ons tage allow the public to interact with and learn from speakers and from each other, to gain an understanding of the latest environmental, technical and regulatory issues.

Find out below what we have on offer during The METSTRADE Show.

Construction in Process Stage

The Construction Material Pavilion (CMP) of the METSTRADE show is the specialist platform for raw materials and composites for the leisure marine industry. It is the perfect place to get inspired about innovative materials and how to use them. Participants of the 2018 edition were: Wessex Resins, Adhesives Limited, SCIGRIP UK, Gurit and Diab International AB.

Round Table on boat construction and materials

The Round Table on boat construction and materials sessions focuses on two relevant topics related to new materials and construction techniques for all types of boats and yachts: ‘Fatigue behaviour of composite vessels under slamming’ and ‘How to improve composite design thanks to better failure understanding – the latest news on the Recycling of (iberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) boats.’ The Round Table offers an opportunity for technicians and yacht designers to exchange knowledge and ideas, while also giving the public a chance to interact with the speakers and gain a better understanding of the latest technical topics.
