METS exhibition committee adds two new members

Yachticon general manager Andreas Tegeler and Lewmar CEO Peter Tierney joined the METS exhibition committee.

Yachticon general manager Andreas Tegeler and Lewmar CEO Peter Tierney joined the Marine Equipment Trade Show exhibition committee.

Each year in January a member of the committee steps down to make way for a new one.

Committee members can be called upon for advice and information about any of the strategic issues that have an impact on the marine trade show, which takes place annually at Amsterdam RAI.

Tegeler is Yachticon’s general manager for sales. Based in Germany, Yachticon offers products for the care of yachts and caravans.

“In a world of fast-changing markets, the METS Trade Show is a crucial combination of tool, platform and marketplace,” Tegeler said in a statement. “As a member of the exhibition committee I will endeavor to contribute to making the show even better — with new ideas to keep the boating market fiercely modern, and with smart responses to future challenges, for instance in online areas.”

Tierney is CEO and chairman of the leisure marine equipment supplier Lewmar. He graduated as an engineer, has a master’s degree in business and has been in his current role at Lewmar since 2008.

During the past 20 years Tierney has been a CEO in the oil and gas, aviation and marine engineering sectors.

“I am delighted to be involved in the METS Trade exhibition committee. I will endeavor to help the team maintain the show as the industry's leading international B2B event and keep the Lewmar premium brand prominently associated with it,” he said.

METS will be held Nov. 15-17 at RAI Amsterdam, the city’s exhibition and conference center.
