Registration open for IMBC 2017

Registration for the International Marina & Boatyard Conference is now available at IMBC, entering its 15th year, is taking place January 25-27, 2017, at the Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale and is produced by the Association of Marina Industries.

Full conference passes start at $389 and include unlimited access to all educational seminars, round tables, workshops, food and beverages; entry into the exhibit hall; and admittance to all networking events. This year’s biggest events include the new IMBC Pub Crawl, an AMI member meeting followed by a first-time attendee reception, and IMBC’s opening night Exhibit Hall Party on January 25.

This year the dozens of seminar and workshop offerings provide a balanced selection focusing on four key areas: operations, service and repair, design and engineering, and best industry practices. Sessions range from developing new revenue streams, planning successful dredging projects, preparing for the upcoming changes to the marine electrical safety program to solid succession planning. All are presented by leaders in their respective fields. Each day of intense learning closes with receptions and socials for continued industry networking.

“IMBC remains a one-stop shop for marina professionals and the annual event for our industry,” says AMI Chair Brad Gross, Certified Marina Manager (CMM).”It is where we gather to keep well-informed on trends, discuss new ideas, talk to suppliers about new products hitting the market, and create important professional relationships. It is how we improve our businesses and find information to ensure continued success.”

As well as full conference passes, IMBC offers one-day passes and exhibit hall passes. As always, AMI members receive a discount on all passes. In addition to the perks of full conference and one-day passes, the marina and boatyard field trip may be added for $60 for AMI members and $90 for non-members.
