Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) 2023
Since its inception in 1988, the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) has successfully positioned itself as the premier indoor B2B marine industry venue in the world.
Last year, METS showcased a total of 1,400 exhibitors from 49 countries across 10 halls covering every facet of marine equipment, systems and materials. In 2022, METS was attended by over 17,000 visitors from 126 countries. Historically, over 90% of METS exhibitors return to the show and 95% of visitors make METS an annual event on their calendar. This level of enthusiasm underscores the vital importance METS represents to the global marine industry. Traditionally, over 70% of the visitors represent the decision-makers at their company making METS a critical venue for overseas agents, distributors, and builders to find new products and technologies. This year METS will feature 11 distinct halls that will include 18 country pavilions and halls dedicated exclusively to the superyacht marine cluster, marina development, advanced composites, and foiling technology.
Florida companies have three exhibition options:
• USA Pavilion through the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA)
