The METS trade show is where all the newest gear and gadgets for 2019 are unveiled. We scour the stands for the best innovations
The METS Trade Show might not be well known to UK sailors, but for the marine industry it marks the start of the new year as they unveil for the first time the very latest gadgets and equipment they have been working on behind closed doors.
Sometimes they are updating existing products, but every so often a totally new concept appears, ready to take the sailing world by storm. The 12 halls of the Amsterdam RAI are a treasure trove of boaty bits, but as it’s not open to the public, we scouted the halls for our highlights. It’s also where the DAME Design Awards are announced – the industry’s pick of the year’s products.
