METSTRADE organiser acquires The Superyacht Forum

METSTRADE organiser, RAI Amsterdam, has acquired The Superyacht Forum from The Superyacht Group.

RAI Amsterdam will assume full responsibility for organising The Superyacht Forum from 2024 onwards.

Martin Redmayne, The Superyacht Group’s chairman, will take on the role of strategic consultant.

The Superyacht Forum has been held in Amsterdam for more than 30 years. It was originally named ‘Project 95’ and has evolved over the years into a premier conference and networking event for superyacht industry professionals.

The event takes place at the RAI in November each year, running prior to and concurrent to METSTRADE, a factor that the RAI says has been a significant accelerator of METSTRADE’s SuperYacht Pavilion.

With METSTRADE set to expand, organisers say further optimising the synergy between the two closely related events is a natural step.

“After 30 years, it’s time for a new phase. The Superyacht Forum is in good hands with RAI Amsterdam,” said Martin Redmayne, owner of The Superyacht Group. “It’s a logical transition towards a highly capable organisation, as evidenced by the great success of METSTRADE.

“I have full confidence and am pleased to remain closely involved with The Superyacht Forum, albeit in a strategic role. This transition allows The Superyacht Group and I to focus on our future strategy of delivering valuable information, intelligence, and high-level industry consultancy services.”

Niels Klarenbeek, METSTRADE director, added: “We are deeply grateful to Martin Redmayne for what he has built with The Superyacht Forum. The team here sees countless future opportunities for this event and looks forward to working with its existing partners. Together, we will continue to grow the success of this market-leading conference, run for, and by, the superyacht industry.”

The next edition of The Superyacht Forum will be held on Monday and Tuesday, 18 – 19 November 2024.

METSTRADE will take place from 19 – 21 November 2024.
