Invitation to Send Your Historic Material for 25th METS

2012 is an historic year for METS as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. To mark the special occasion, the METS team invites exhibitors, visitors and other professionals involved with the show over the years to send in photographs, newspaper clippings, personal videos and anecdotes to form the basis of special displays. The material will be used on the METS website and in prominent positions around METS 2012.

“For a quarter of a century, METS has been the launch pad for thousands of innovative products, the show of choice for major meetings and business deals, and a prized venue for social and networking events,” says METS senior product manager, Irene Dros. “This makes for a very rich history and we look forward to receiving personal mementos for displays that will capture the true spirit and tradition of the show.”

One contributor will be rewarded with lunch for six at the First Floor Restaurant of Amsterdam RAI during METS 2012.

Submissions should be sent to
