Networking and Innovation


On behalf of Amsterdam RAI, I am delighted to welcome you to METS/SYP 2011, the international product showcase that enjoys the biggest global trade attendance.


METS/SYP is always an international event and 2011 will prove to be no exception with some 18,000 visitors from all over the world, and over 1,300 international exhibiting companies many of which are grouped in our 15 national pavilions.


METS/SYP is therefore not just a unique networking opportunity but is also a multi-cultural experience. Meeting new people – and old friends – from different parts of the world face to face is enriching on both business and personal levels and serves to remind us all that our market reach is – ultimately – down to us and us alone. Let’s all make the effort to meet new people from different countries and to also embrace the increasing opportunities given us by social media to further augment our approach to doing business on a global level now and in the years to come.


Networking and innovation are always the keystones at METS/SYP and we are constantly striving to strengthen these even further. This year METS will feature special ‘meet and greet’ areas and we also launch the Young Professionals Club – a networking platform for the under 35s. Along with the other trade shows we organise at Amsterdam RAI, METS has its own innovation platform with the DAME competition and DAME Pavilion; an array of cutting edge products whose design affects the shape of marine equipment now and for tomorrow.


We also look to our much valued conference and seminar programmes to highlight innovation and are very grateful for the expertise and organisational skills of the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) and its member organisations in helping with this. The co-operation with SYBAss (Superyacht Builders Association)and the Global Superyacht Forum (GSF), organised by The Superyacht Report Group, are the perfect extensions to the bustling SuperYacht Pavilion.


ICOMIA also keeps us focused on innovation with its technical seminars and kick starts the METS week this year with a new full day ‘green’ conference on Marine Hybrid Propulsion Systems. Attendees were able to gain valuable insight into the perfect marriage of innovative technology and environmental benefit.


With products to inspect, people to meet and gatherings to attend, METS/SYP 2011 makes for a busy time for everyone and I wish you all an excellent and rewarding three days.


I close by thanking all of our exhibitors, international partners, agents and affiliates and especially IBI for their continuous support, enthusiasm and hard work.


Enjoy METS/SYP 2011!
