WARREN, R.I. — The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA) has opened registration for its third annual Summer Symposium with a new pricing structure designed to allow participants greater flexibility and more savings.
The event, scheduled for July 18–19, 2011, in New Bedford, Massachusetts, combines a day of seminars with an optional boatyard field trip, which is an additional $30. A discounted early registration rate is available for both ABBRA members and non-members who register for the Summer Symposium before June 30, 2010.
“Our goal is to provide relevant information and networking opportunities to all members of the boatyard, boat repair and service industry,” ABBRA president Pam Lendzion said. “With this new pricing structure, we can reach out to more industry professionals and provide an attractive choice for how they spend their time and money.”
The symposium will feature content catered to the interest of the boat building, service, and repair industry, including panel seminars from industry leaders, attendee-led roundtable discussions on current issues, and a keynote presentation.
