Bigger boat a better bargain

ritecRitec is taking more bookings for the Glasstec ‘Ritec Ship’ after securing a ‘bigger and better’ vessel for the duration of the show. Prices for cabins, including all the extras shown below, will remain the same.

,Ritec will now be occupying ‘MPS Statendam’ after ‘MS Da Vinci’ was taken out of service until end of this year. All Glasstec exhibitors and visitors are welcome to reserve cabins on a first-come, first-served basis.

,MPS Statendam reportedly has more facilities of benefit to guests staying on board and others visiting for evening Happy Hours. These include:

,• A more spacious bar and lounge
,• A restaurant for lunch and dinner
,• A heated swimming pool on top deck
,• A four-hole putting green
,• A giant chess board
,• A fitness area with exercise equipment
,• A meeting facilities for guests to use during the day

,Also included in the package is a buffet breakfast, complimentary drinks during the Happy Hours, a complimentary coach to take guests directly to the show in the morning, discounted Glasstec visitor tickets (available upon request) and ‘many opportunities for business networking’.

,The convenient mooring location on the River Rhein means the Ritec Ship is just a short walk to the restaurants and bars in the bustling Altstadt (Old Town), the heart of Düsseldorf’s nightlife.
