Materia Exhibition: Lightweight Miracles

During the Metstrade 2016 show at Amsterdam RAI you can enjoy the Material Xperience On Tour on 15, 16 and 17 November, with the theme of “Lightweight Miracles”. This exhibition is entirely dedicated to materials for yacht building.

The METSTRADE show is the only international B2B exhibition for the marine leisure industry. It combines new products, seminars and unrivalled networking opportunities for visitors to connect across countries, technologies and industry sectors.

Today’s yachting industry faces a number of challenges. The recyclability of existing abandoned (GRP) boats is high on the agenda, and therefore the designing and building of new durable boats. How far is the development of bio-based composites for yacht building? What new lightweight materials are suitable for the finishing? What benefits can be achieved with 3D printing? And what materials radiate with luxury and elegance? Wooden textiles, luxurious leather, foamed metal, biobased composites and even lightweight concrete are some exiting examples. This exhibition shows the materials that are a source of inspiration for both the designer and the builder of the yacht.

Registration before 8 November is free, after that the fee is €70 and onsite €200. Register here.
