As part of the National Marine Electronics Association’s International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo this fall, a panel of chief executives representing marine electronics companies will discuss key issues and challenges facing the industry.

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.
