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.

Change is in the air. Fashion, architecture, mobility: the real luxury lifestyle is about unwinding, relaxing, and making a statement responsibly. We guarantee you that in this exhibition, you will be able to see that intelligent, bio-based and recycled materials can be beautiful and luxurious.
