TAMPA, Fla. – The International Marina & Boatyard Convention’s (IMBC) annual field trip will include visits to three marinas in Tampa, Fla., event organizers reported in a recent statement.
On Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010 from 1:30 pm – 5:45 pm, field-trip participants will tour Tampa Yacht & Country Club, Westshore Yacht Club, and Tampa Harbour.
The field trip returns to the Tampa Convention Center just before IMBC’s opening reception in the exhibit hall on Jan. 27.
The field trip provides participants with an opportunity to take information learned and issues discussed in member newsletters and industry publications and apply them to actual marina facilities, stated organizers.
“The trip also gives participants insight as to how other marinas operate and what they offer,” organizers said. “The networking opportunities are endless on IMBC’s field trip as over 75 managers, service professionals, and staff come together to make this event possible.”
Registration for IMBC will be available within the next month on IMBC’s Web site, www.marinaassociation.org/imbc/. Online registration as well as downloadable registration forms will be available.
