METSTRADE brought together more than 1,400 exhibitors and registered more than 26,480 visitors, who enjoyed the huge show, which focused on three specialist sectors, Superyachts, Marinas and Boatyards, and Construction Materials, each located in a pavilion, offering a smaller, self-contained show within the wider context of the show.

The Balearic Marine Clúster stand, located in the SuperYacht Pavilion, has focused on highlighting the refit services offered by our islands for large yachts, and has been a meeting point for companies, allowing the creation of synergies between companies and strengthening the image of the islands as a leading technical refit destination.

The predominant theme of the event was sustainability and how to tackle the current problems facing the nautical industry, promoting a much more collaborative, innovative and solid industry. All these themes were brought together at the Superyacht Forum, organised by The Superyacht Group and held under the name Evolve or Repeat.
