Posted on

Thirteen marine manufacturers were honored this morning for innovative achievement by the NMMA and Boating Writers International at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference Innovation Awards in Louisville, Ky.

The winning companies received their awards this morning during the annual IBEX Industry Breakfast at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

“Judges found a solid mix of affordable maintenance products for boaters and game-changing technology in two propulsion applications,” said Alan Wendt, IBEX Innovation Awards Committee chairman and the editor of Marine CEO.

“With the move to Louisville and the combination of IBEX and MAATS, we were expecting to see a lot of impressive entries for the 2010 Innovation Awards. This year’s participation exceeded our expectations, with nearly twice the amount of entries than last year – a great sign for the future of boating innovation.”
