METS adds 18th country pavilion

ADVERTISEMENT

METS, the Marine Equipment Trade Show taking place this week, has added three new country pavilions this year: China, Slovenia and South Korea. This makes a total of 18 country pavilions this year.

“We are very pleased to introduce a second Asian pavilion,” said Sarah Westdijk, product manager for METS. “It is still very modest in size, but we have no doubt that it will grow significantly now they have the country pavilion as both a flag and an umbrella under which they can present their companies, facilitating the move of other South Korean companies.”

The South Korean pavilion this year will host BaekSan Propeller, Bay Industrial, DJ Pump, Kyungin Corporation/ Mirasol and Pretech Marine.

Present at the first METS, the United Kingdom and United States pavilions were joined within five years by Denmark, Italy, Sweden, Finland, France, the Netherlands and Canada. The next five years saw Germany and Norway join as well. By the time METS celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2002, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand and Spain had boosted the number of country pavilions to 15.

The three-day show runs in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
