This trade show stands out because of its focus on innovation and new market developments. The show's annual DAME awards, the largest nautical competition of this kind, showcase new innovations, placing a particular emphasis on the creativity and the science behind the designs featured: style, functionality, ease of set-up, practicality and user-friendliness. 

Scanstrut received this year's 2017 DAME award for its RS Venture Connect Conversion Kit, a system which allows standard sailing dinghies to be adapted for most handicaps, even for para-sailing. 


NV has been attending METSTRADE since 2001. The NV team attend and exhibit every year, and have seen the trade show grow and garner the growing interest of players in the tourism industry on a global scale. 

The show encourages enriching dialogue between professionals from all over the world, with representatives from every country. For NV, the objective is to network with the European distributors and manufacturers who come to METSTRADE, which boasts the largest marine equipment exhibition in the world.
