Exhibitor happy hour

The Exhibitor Happy Hour will be held on the evening of November 19th. Traditionally it marks the end of the first day at METSTRADE. It is a fun and relaxed evening with informal setting and music played by our DJ. Exhibitors are welcomed to join for a drink and are entitled to invite 2 business relations, which means they had been enjoying the festivities not only with your colleagues, but also with approximately 900-1000 peers.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy, and meanwhile, network with each other!

Exhibitor Meet & Mingle

The Exhibitor Meet & Mingle event was introduced for the very first time at METSTRADE 2018. It brings experts together on the day before METSTRADE kicks off.

Designed to facilitate networking in a productive and social way, this event offered up to 200 registered stand personnel a unique chance to take a break from the build-up and get to know their fellow METSTRADE exhibitors. Meet & Mingle was a great chance to talk business and discuss the latest market developments in an informal way which is almost impossible once the show starts.

Waterfront drinks

'Waterfront Drinks' is an event specially designed for only the Marina & Yard exhibitors and visitors. 

Every year in November, METSTRADE welcomes marina owners, yards, operators, developers and suppliers from around the world to gather together on one of the biggest global marina events. As the number of marina exhibitors and visitors is growing, we hope the Waterfront Drinks will facilitate a great time for the marina professional community to unify and build new connection It will also bring a relaxing moment after a busy day at METSTRADE.
