Ensuring your health and safety

METSTRADE have implemented multiple measures, on top of the measures imposed by the Dutch government, to ensure a safe and responsible event.

METSTRADE, will create a bubble between cooperating hotels and the venue, RAI Amsterdam. They have also made arrangements with restaurants in the show vicinity to use their protocol to safeguard the wellbeing of visitors and exhibitors and made some minor programme adjustments.
