METSTRADE is supporting Water Revolution Foundation as the not-for-profit organisation's first strategic trade show partner, both hoping to make sustainable solutions more accessible, visible and verifiable.

As the linking pin between innovative, sustainable technologies and the global yachting industry, the two organisations can work together to try to reduce the industry's ecological footprint.

“It was great that we could count on immediate support from METSTRADE, right from the day we launched at its 2018 edition," said Robert van Tol, executive director of Water Revolution Foundation. "They clearly understood what Water Revolution is out to achieve and why what we are doing is so important."

Connecting people

METSTRADE also aims to connect the people behind the many initiatives in the global industry and enable them to join forces and make a concerted effort. “We’re keen about sustainability and when we heard about Water Revolution’s mission to reduce the ecological footprint of the superyachting industry, the question wasn’t whether we should support the foundation, but rather, how," said Irene Dros, maritime director of METSTRADE.

Yearly report

The METSTRADE team aims to provide an exhibition environment which is as green and sustainable as possible. For the first time this year, the trade show will launch a sustainability report which will be updated every year after.

The show runs from 19 – 21 November in Amsterdam.
