METSTRADE Connect 2020 © National Marine Manufacturers Association

With the cancellations of trade shows across the globe in 2020 the annual METS Trade show was no different. This is a key event in the maritime calendar and many of the Raymarine sales, marketing, product management and executive team attend this every year for meetings with you our customers, along with our industry partners and journalists.

This year the event has been replaced with a one day online networking and live stream. Raymarine are title sponsors of this event which will combine Tech Talk sessions, video meetings, live broadcasts from the main stage and the annual DAME and Boat Builder Awards.

We encourage all our partners to register for this event. Whether you have attended METS in the past, have never been and would like a taster of what to expect or simply want to watch the live events from the comfort of your home or desk.

We understand the timings are not perfect for our region and will share recordings of the below events shortly after the conclusion of the METS Connect event.

Registration is free and takes less than a minute.

We appreciate how busy everyone is so here is a useful summary of some of the key events worth adding to your calendar on the day, all easily accessed and bookmarked via the METS Connect portal.
