Marina & Yard Pavilion at METSTRADE to host PIANC Marina Design Training Program

PIANC RecCom, the Recreational Navigation Commission of the World Association of Waterborne Navigation Infrastructure, has partnered with METSTRADE’s Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP) to mutually enhance its programme at the METSTRADE Show 2019.

PIANC RecCom complements the list of leading bodies that contribute to the MYP programme, such as the Global Marina Institute (GMI) and HISWA, the Dutch Boating Industry Association.

The MYP will host a specially designed PIANC’s Marina Design Training Program (MDTP). The course scheduled on 19 & 20 November will focus on design fundamentals for marina owners and operators, including refurbishments and new projects, as well as new trends in marina design.

PIANC RecCom will also convene an open meeting to discuss marina adaptation needs to best service the growth in electric propulsion recreational vessels on Wednesday 20 November.

Finally, the PIANC Marina Excellence Design Jack Nichol Award will be presented to the 2018-2019 winner during the MYP Waterfront Drinks. The award recognises excellence in the design of modern recreational boating facilities around the world.

The 2019 METSTRADE Show runs from November 19-21 at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. Three dedicated specialist pavilions are part of the show: the Marina & Yard Pavilion, the SuperYacht Pavilion, and the Construction Material Pavilion.
