METSTRADE, Marine Industry News, Soundings Trade Only and British Marine are joining forces to create a LinkedIn group focused on female professionals working in the recreational marine industry, the ‘Women in the Marine Industry International’ LinkedIn group.

“After last year’s successful Women in the Marine Industry International event at METSTRADE, we surveyed the participants requesting their feedback and suggestions. This new LinkedIn group, created as a place for women working in the recreational marine industry to gather, share, learn, and inspire, is a direct result of the requests from the audience. The online group will offer a shared space to connect, provide information, educational tools, opportunities and much more,” comments Michele Goldsmith, vice president and general manager of the Soundings Trade Only group.

“We are so pleased after last year’s great event to be able to support the growth of the Women in the Marine Industry International network through the creation of this additional place for discussion, the sharing of ideas and connecting with one another,” says Lyndsay McClay, commercial manager at Marine Industry News.

The Women in the Marine Industry International LinkedIn group will go live on 15 August 2023. 

“We are happy to contribute to the empowerment of women in the industry through a dedicated social platform – a place where we can connect, support, and inspire each other, fostering growth, and sharing knowledge. Together, we rise and thrive, breaking barriers and shattering glass ceilings,” says Niels Klarenbeek, METSTRADE show director.

British Marine CEO Lesley Robinson adds: “As the world becomes more digitally connected, it is essential that we create spaces for professional interaction and growth, specifically for women navigating the marine industry. The new Women in the Marine Industry International LinkedIn page is dedicated to showcasing the incredible accomplishments of women in marine, providing networking opportunities, and fostering a platform for inspiration, collaboration, and empowerment.”

The Women in the Marine Industry International event is open to all METSTRADE attendees and exhibitors. To register for METSTRADE, please visit www.METSTRADE.com/tickets.
