The marine industry is facing difficult times. The COVID-19 coronavirus is spreading fast and the implications are grave for everyone. Shows are cancelled and many companies have to close their offices until further notice, and many people have to work from home. Amid those difficult measures, the Metstrade Team remains confident towards the upcoming show in November 2020.

At this moment there are no reasons to question the current planning, as we follow the guidelines of the Dutch government. Sarah Westdijk, exhibition manager: “The entire Metstrade Team is working from home, but remains focused on the exhibition in November. Times are difficult right now, but currently there are no reasons to postpone the show. We are still very much looking forward to the show. The expansion of Hall 5 has made way for a lot of exciting improvements and we have made some significant changes to the floorplan. We are working hard to implement these changes and to organize the best possible show for visitors and exhibitors."

Harold Mol, senior sales consultant for Metstrade adds: “We are very happy to see that exhibitors stay positive and are still registering to participate in the upcoming Metstrade Show in November. At this moment over three quarters of the show is already booked. Although times are tough, Metstrade can once again be the meeting place for the marine industry this November.”
