Barton Marine is hosting its own virtual METSTRADE 2020 event featuring an immersive 3d exhibition experience.

The event, running from 16 to 20 November, will enable visitors to browse, watch videos and discover more about Barton’s deck equipment, marine essentials and Swobbit products just as they would have experienced at Amsterdam RAI.

“We find ourselves in unusual times, but how fortunate to still meet with our colleagues, customers and friends through the virtual world that connects us all,” said Suzanne Blaustone, chief executive of Barton Marine. “Although it’s a huge shame not to meet face to face this year, we know our virtual event will enable our Barton Team to be well prepared for 2021 and whatever challenges arise within our global customer network,” she added.

The complete Barton exhibition stand is set up in the middle of the Barton warehouse next to the factory in Whitstable, England, and wired to host live Zoom sessions. The team hosts back to back meetings throughout the three days of METSTRADE to build relationships, understand client needs and develop targets for the following year.

The annual Barton Drinks Party has become a much loved tradition at METS and will continue this year despite the pandemic restrictions. Letterbox Hampers have been sent to all global distributors to ensure that the party goes on regardless.
