We are delighted to inform you that RAI Amsterdam has purchased a 50% stake in the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) from Professional BoatBuilder. As you may be aware, IBEX is the marine industry’s largest technical trade event in North America. The METSTRADE team from RAI Amsterdam will partner with the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) to produce future IBEX events. 


Together, METSTRADE & IBEX are the leading global trade events serving the marine industry and professionals worldwide. By joining forces we can now combine the best marine resources from the North American market with those of the global marine marketplace.

While IBEX and the METSTRADE Show will continue to maintain their unique focus and identity, IBEX will be globally powered by METSTRADE to foster international growth in exhibits and sponsorships from companies looking to reach the North American boatbuilding industry.

This exciting development offers added value for everyone who exhibits and visits our events, as well of course for our partners. We look forward to sharing more details in the near future.
