USA. Marina industry offer early booking discount for International Marina & Boatyard Conference

Monday, 20 November 2006

Producers of the 2007 International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) scheduled for January 28–31 in Tampa, Florida, are offering a $50 discount on registration, but time is running out. The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) and the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association (ABBRA)—owners and operators of IMBC—remind members of the marina industry that November 30th is the deadline for the discount.

The IMBC is the only show catered specifically for marina owners, managers, and staff, as well as boat repairers and yards. Over the course of three days, nearly 600 conference attendees from around the world choose from a dozen seminars, roundtable discussions, and talks ranging in topics from “Healthcare Options and Opportunities” to “Marina Retrofit, Redesign and Construction,” as well as a panel on the current and topical issue of boating access and the tricky world of contract legality. The show floor, which remains open for the duration of the conference, exhibits up-and-coming products along with tried-and-true vendors. On the third day, attendees and exhibitors can choose to reestablish contacts made at the show or connect with new people on a field trip aboard the Lady Tampa Bay for a three-hour cruise around Tampa’s bustling and growing harbor.

The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) is a non-profit membership organization providing management training, education, and information about research, legislation, and environmental issues affecting the marina industry.

The American Boat Builders and Repairers Association (ABBRA), founded in 1943, strengthens and encourages professionalism in the boat building and marine service industry by providing its members with timely information, training, education and business services.
