METS 2017: Nine exhibitors pitch products to international industry press

Nine Metstrade show exhibitors, chosen by a panel of journalists from international trade magazines, had the opportunity to demonstrate their products in elevator pitches at a “Pitch The Press” event on Wednesday.

The audience at the Metstrade Theater consisted of visitors, exhibitors and the international press.

“The rules for inclusion were not especially stringent as the main priority was to flag up distinctive, practical and innovative solutions,” marketing communications and public relations manager Sigrid van der Wel said in a statement. “This initiative also served as an encouragement to companies who may not have the large marketing budgets required to otherwise reach a wide audience.”

Each of the companies was given five minutes to describe and demonstrate their product.

The presented products were: the MacGlide by Mactac; the CCROV camera by Shenzen Vxfly Intelligent Information Technology Co. Ltd.; the InnoLin by Flax Composites; the DynamicTrim Control System by Zipwake; the Trimcontrol Electronic Telltale by Meragitee; the S.A.F.E. by Opacmare; the Clik by PME Mare Inc.; the Hook 2 line by Lowrance; and the Seakeeper 6 by Seakeeper.

“ ‘Pitch The Press’ is a great platform to share information on our new launches in front of a large trade audience,” said Seakeeper COO Andrew Semprevivo, who presented the company’s new Seakeeper 6 stabilizer system. “This is a fine example of how the industry can push forward and grow.”
