IBEX Registration Opens

Registration is now open for the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) to be held September 28 to 30, in the Tampa Convention Center. IBEX is North America’s largest trade event for recreational marine industry professionals and owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and RAI Amsterdam.

More than 570 exhibitors have already confirmed for this year’s IBEX, including 48 new exhibiting companies with more signing up each week. Limited exhibit space is still available and expected to sell out in the coming weeks. The IBEX docks are sold out, with 29 boats scheduled to be on display. Outdoor exhibits will encompass the largest space in the Show’s history, with nine outdoor exhibits planned. An IBEX first, two exhibitors decided to make their outdoor presence their main location – instead of a complement to their inside booth on the Show floor. To date, 19 international companies reserved booth space, representing 13 nationalities including: Australia, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Korea, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

IBEX offers its visitors three exhibit halls, outdoor displays, and demos on the IBEX docks. It also offers training and education from industry experts and associations. The Education Conference is a key component of the event and includes a full Pre-Conference Session schedule, held September 26 and 27, free Tech Talk Workshops, hosted by exhibiting companies, and the Seminar Series

Special events are scheduled for every day of the Show including the Industry Breakfast and Innovation Awards presentation; the Opening Night Party, sponsored by Wet Sounds Inc.; Pitch the Press with a happy hour to follow, sponsored by Propspeed; an exhibit hall party to celebrate IBEX’s 30th Anniversary; and a Mid-Show Mixer.
