The awards, in association with Raymarine and organised jointly by IBI and METSTRADE, will be held on November 15 at Amsterdam’s National Maritime Museum.

Categories include retail marketing initiative, boat builder international distributor/dealer development, boat builder and equipment manufacturer, innovative onboard design solution, innovation in a production process, environmental initiative, apprenticeship and trainee scheme and lifetime achievement.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for the retail marketing initiative and environmental initiative awards.
