The Metstrade show announced that Antoine Thomas and Leo Stam joined its Exhibition Committee.

Thomas is CEO of galley equipment company ENO in France. Stam is owner of hydraulic systems and components supplier Hydrosta in the Netherlands.

The Metstrade Exhibition Committee is an advisory board that acts as the voice of and trend-watcher for the global marine industry, according to Metstrade organizers. It is chaired by Irene Dros, RAI Amsterdam’s maritime group director. The International Council of Marine Industry Associations and its members are represented through the group’s secretary general, who has a permanent seat on the committee.

The term of membership is five to six years.

Committee members primarily have an advisory and informative role and are consulted for a variety of strategic issues that could impact the Metstrade Show.
