WARREN, R.I. — The International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) is looking for experts to present on industry topics at its conference on Feb. 1-3, 2012. The conference, produced by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), will take place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
“We are reaching out to the industry for current topical presentations by experienced and objective individuals,” Jim Frye, AMI chair and president, says. “We spend a great deal of time on the content for the conference and we want to be sure it speaks to our audience. In order to do that, we need to hear from marina owners and operators as well as boat repair and service yards.”
IMBC’s coordinators are looking for presentations that are pertinent to IMBC’s audience, which includes internationally acclaimed marina-industry professionals, Certified Marina Managers (CMMs), potential Certified Marina Managers, marina and boatyard owners and operators, boat repairers, and more.
Presentations can be designed for all levels of experience—from fundamental and intermediate to advanced topics. IMBC organizers ask that the information be timely, informative, and educational without overt company or product promotions.
Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2011. For more guidelines and more information, go to www.marinaassociation.org/imbc.
