The METSTrade show appointed Rens-Jan van Vliet as its new maritime product manager.

Van Vliet previously was METSTrade’s sales manager and he will mainly focus on the exhibition and on the further development of the Construction Material Pavilion.

The ongoing growth and development of the METSTrade show and platform, including the pavilions, side events, conferences and communities, has made it necessary to enlarge the team.

The appointment of van Vliet will allow Sarah Westdijk to further focus on developing the Marina & Yard Pavilion and SuperYacht Pavilion. Westdijk also will manage the ICOMIA World Marinas Conference, which will take place during the METSTrade show 2016 in RAI Amsterdam.

After the METSTrade show in 2014, Van Vliet left to become product manager at the RAI’s Intertraffic domain. As product manager of METSTrade, he will bring together the function and the industry.

“His experience will add lots of value to the show while giving us the time to ensure that all the exhibitors and partners of the METSTrade show receive the attention they deserve, just as the pavilions and other aspects of the show,” Maritime domain manager Irene Dros said in a statement.
