The discussion will take place at the Baltimore Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel on Sept. 29 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The conference and expo will run from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

The CEO panel includes Andrew Teich, president and CEO of FLIR/Raymarine; Marc Jourlait, deputy CEO of Navico Holding AS; and Phil Whitehurst, managing director of Active Research Ltd./Actisense.
