Conference Information and Complete Schedule of Seminars Available Online

BROOKLIN, ME—June 3, 2013—Show organizers announce registration is now open for the 2013 International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), to be held from September 17-19 at the Louisville Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. All qualified marine professionals are invited to register for this trade-only event by visiting the new IBEX website.

The 2013 IBEX Show offers a full schedule of 75 seminars, presented by industry experts on a variety of subjects vital to the marine trades. Topics range from in-depth looks at specific products; discussions on methods of boat building, repair, surveying, and design; as well as issues of boatyard operation and management. The new IBEX website allows visitors to browse topics and search by area of interest. This year, each seminar has its own page with details, pictures, and videos, so attendees can have a deeper understanding of the subject matter before the conference, and make informed decisions about which professional development opportunities are right for them.

IBEX will be offering a new track of seminars called “ProBoat Editors’ Picks.” These seminars feature well-known Professional BoatBuilder magazine contributors Nigel Calder, Steve D'Antonio, Rodger Martin, and Reuel Parker, among others. They will present interesting and relevant topics to the contemporary marine professional, such as “Designing Shoal-Draft Sailboats,” “Advances in Lithium Batteries,” and “Hybrids: Lessons Learned in the Real World,” a presentation about the applications of hybrid marine engines.

“Since 1992 when we started IBEX, Professional BoatBuilder magazine has been selecting and, in most cases, producing the seminars,” said Carl Cramer, IBEX Founding Director. “We chose eight sessions this year that we feel are particularly noteworthy. They may be expansions of articles we've recently published, or topics that don't readily fit in other seminar tracks. We believe each of these eight sessions is of particular interest to the IBEX community.”

Attendees will also find other resources on the updated IBEX website to help them plan for their trip to Louisville this fall, including detailed information on travel, networking events, and things to do in the city.

For more information about IBEX registration and the Education Conference, please visit the show website: Participants registering before August 23, 2013 are eligible for a discounted rate.
