This year’s International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) will feature 56 educational seminars, 15 tech talk workshops and nine super sessions for a combined 80 opportunities for boat builders, manufacturers, boatyard and marina personnel to increase their knowledge and skills.
The American Boat Builders and Repairers Association, the American Boat and Yacht Council, the National Marine Electronics Association, the National Marine Manufacturers Association and Professional BoatBuilder magazine are all assisting with the development of the IBEX seminar series as official education partners to the show.
Marina Dock Age magazine and the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas are new education partners this year. Marina Dock Age is leading sessions focusing on the areas of operations that cross both boatyard and marina businesses, such as general efficiency, and more specific focus on the issue of copper bottom paints and alternatives.
The MRAA seminar highlights means for manufacturers to improve their relationships with dealers to help increase sales and profits.
