METSTRADE partners with The Foiling Organization

METSTRADE has partnered with The Foiling Organization to bring a new Foiling Technology Pavilion (FTP) to the trade show in Amsterdam, 15-17 November 2023. The pavilion in hall 7 will showcase manufacturers of foiling hardware and technology, and aims to educate trade visitors.

This new partnership between METSTRADE and the international association for the foiling industry and its professionals was announced during the Foiling Awards prize giving ceremony on Wednesday (29 March) in Milan.

The FTP will highlight the progress made towards high-end racing technology adoption on mainstream series-produced yachts and boats and will serve as a one stop shop for boat builders and designers who want to know more about what is involved in employing foiling on sail and power yachts in the immediate future. It will also feature a knowledge stage for discussion on all the trending topics in the sector. Exhibitors already confirmed in the FTP include Caponnetto Hueber, Foil Chemy and Vakaros.

“Foiling is changing the water mobility system,” says Luca Rizzotti, founder of The Foiling Organization and founder and president of We Are Foiling events. “The decarbonisation targets set by the EU, the UN and the IMO, make foiling an almost obligatory choice for new leisure and commercial applications. The astonishing number of projects for the transport of people, goods and containers is there to prove it.

“I am confident that the Foiling Technology Pavilion will provide a major boost to accelerate innovation and economic growth in the foiling segment to the satisfaction of all of those who will have the opportunity to take part in this showcase.”

Niels Klarenbeek, METSTRADE show director, comments: “With the Foiling Technology Pavilion we cannot wait to unveil the latest of our forward-thinking feature areas and we anticipate wide interest from visitors and exhibitors alike. METSTRADE has been at the forefront of providing a significant knowledge platform to highlight the developments that will move our industry’s essential decarbonisation efforts from ambition to reality.

“It is a logical progression for us to take a leading role in partnership with The Foiling Organization to encourage the mainstream adoption of a technology that has such great potential to reduce energy consumption while increasing the pleasure of those who go afloat.”
