"Globalization drives business growth, and the global economy was very much in action at METS," said Irene Dros, maritime domain manager at Amsterdam RAI, which holds the show, in a statement.
"We may live in a digital world, but the event reconfirmed the unrivaled importance of face-to-face meetings in a trade show environment," Dros said.

Irene Dros, Amsterdam RAI's maritime domain manager, says METS continues to grow because it is the kind of event marine exhibitors appreciate - "a truly global business-to-business show, suitable and appropriate for all kinds of companies with the uniform look and feel that fits the business focus."
"METS has stood firm throughout the recession, consistently growing in both stature and visitor and exhibitor numbers representing countries from all over the world," Dros says.
In mid-October, 147 U.S. exhibitors had registered for METS - 79 on the U.S. Pavilion and 12 on the SuperYacht Pavilion, Dros says. A year ago, there were 140 U.S. exhibitors. The show has 18 national pavilions, and the Chinese and Slovenian pavilions will grow about 50 percent this year, she says.
The recreational marine industry in the United States is continuing to make a moderate but steady recovery from the Great Recession and the global financial crisis. Europe has done less well, but Dros says the European marine market "is slowly climbing up after the crisis. Europe is always a little behind the United States. When the crisis hit the U.S., it took a while before it hit Europe. It might also take some time for Europe to experience the same upbeat vibe."
Dros says innovation has been a key theme since METS opened its doors for the first time in 1988.
"Each year METS showcases thousands of innovations and new products, yet due to the large number, not all of these premieres get the attention they deserve," she says.
"Surveys of the many thousands of visitors from around the world consistently show that innovation is the No. 1 reason to come to Amsterdam each year for METS. With this in mind, we are introducing the brand-new Innovation LAB, an onsite activity platform that pays even greater attention to the exhibition's innovations, products and technologies."
Dros says METS this year is offering exhibitors the free use of new lead generator software called Visit Connect. The software will be available for a range of devices, including tablets, smartphones, laptops and desktop applications. The app is available in Google Play and the App Store and can be used to scan barcodes on visitor badges to follow up on business contacts.
"As a European leader in the exhibition market organizing the No. 1 show in the leisure maritime world, it is only right that we lead the way in increasing [return on investment]," Dros says.
