BROOKLIN, Maine - Comprehensive educational options will be available to boatbuilding professionals this year at the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference with the addition of one full-day “Super Session” offered each day of the show, organizers reported earlier this week.
IBEX will be held Nov. 1-3, 2006, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
In addition to the standard IBEX conference program that includes 54 one-and-a-half-hour morning and afternoon sessions, IBEX attendees may elect to take a Super Session one day, and supplement that with some of the briefer sessions on the other show days.
The three Super Session topics are:
As in past years, there are also nine topic-tracks for all facets of the marine industry, with two seminars per day in each topic-track. A complete description of each seminar produced at IBEX is now on the IBEX Web site at www.ibexshow.com, as well as registration and information about discounts for students, multiple registrants from the same company, and early registrants.
“The education available at IBEX this year to boatbuilding professionals is of exceptional quality and range,” said IBEX show co-director and Professional BoatBuilder publisher Carl Cramer. “We expect a high demand for the Super Sessions since these cover topics that are critical to the modern marine industry.”
The conference program is complemented by the 2006 exhibition, featuring representation from as many as 800 manufacturers and suppliers, and including hundreds of new products and processes. Many exhibitors will be presenting their latest technologies during the special Pre-Conference held Tuesday, Oct. 31, and during daily Exhibitors' Workshops each afternoon of the show. The annual Outdoor Demonstration area will feature ongoing, hands-on presentations of tools and materials on display inside the exhibition.
“The level of expertise among this year's seminar speakers is incomparable,” said Kathleen Clickett, IBEX show co-director and trade-events manager for NMMA. “IBEX seminar attendees can expect to return to their businesses after the show with myriad ideas for advancing their current technologies.”
