SNAME To Sponsor Exhibition At 90th Annual Meeting In 1982

The First International Marine Technology Exhibition will be sponsored by The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and held in conjunction with its 90th Annual Meeting on November 18-20, 1982, at The New York Hilton Hotel. This precedent- setting announcement was made by John J. Nachtsheim, president of the Society.

Mr. Nachtsheim made the observation that at present, there was no single major maritime industry exhibition with professional/ technical society sponsorship held in the United States. He said, "We expect to attract an impressive array of exhibitors from all over the world, who will welcome the opportunity to display their latest technical achievements to our sophisticated audience of naval architects, marine and ocean engineers. Our members will not only benefit from the outstanding annual meeting papers presented in the two-day technical program, but learn from the exhibiting companies as well." The decision to establish an exhibition was made by the Society's Executive Committee based upon a survey of industry interest.

Policy and planning are under the direction of an Exhibition Committee consisting of the following Society members: Robert J. Bazzini (Delaval), Jerome M.

Gruber (Waukesha Bearings), Robert B.

Hedges (Combustion Engineering), Jack A.

Obermeyer (Texaco), Charles P. O'Malley (Maritime Reporter), Louis E. Rau (Colt Industries), J. Thomas Schroppe (Foster Wheeler), and Harry R. Yagel (Westinghouse).

Robert G. Mende, secretary and executive director of the Society, serves as Committee chairman.
