What is materialDistrict Pop-Up?

The MaterialDistrict Pop-Up is entirely dedicated to inspirational and innovative materials for yacht building. The yacht industry is a specific one, with its own history of materials and techniques. However, there is much inspiration to be found and lessons to be learned by looking at developments in others sectors. Digital techniques such as 3D printing, the use of smart materials, recycled materials and biobased materials are amply represented. During METSTRADE 2018, 3D printed surfaces, origami textiles, luxurious leather, acoustic and fireproof metals, panels made from seagrass, and tiles of recycled plastic from the ocean were some exciting examples, and you can be assured that during METSTRADE 2019, the latest materials will have found their way to Amsterdam.

The exhibition has something for everybody, from creative, technician and trendwatcher to manufacturer.


As part of the Construction Material Pavilion (CMP), MaterialDistrict’s partners and experts from around the world showcase innovative materials for the maritime industry. Our goal is to inspire marine architects, designers, and shipbuilders with innovative and experimental materials that can be used in boat and yacht building.


MaterialDistrict (formerly Materia) is the world’s leading match-making platform in the field of innovative materials. MaterialDistrict’s value as a high-end materials inspiration source is clear: 150.000+ R&D and design professionals from all industries are using our platform to discover new material solutions. Daily via, annually at MaterialDistrict Rotterdam and periodically throughout the year with traveling MaterialDistrict Expo’s, MaterialDistrict Talks and MaterialDistrict Pop-Up events.
