Registration opens for workshop on marina makeovers

Posted on Written by Michael LaBella

Registration is open for Marina Makeover: An Interactive Experience, a workshop organized by the International Marina Institute and slated for Nov. 16-17 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill.

The workshop is designed for marina professionals who want to learn more about renovating their marinas, exploring new profit center ideas, rethinking the design of their marinas and seeing what other marinas are doing.

“The first Marina Makeover workshop last fall was well received by participants,” Gary Groenewold, chairman of the Association of Marina Industries, said in a statement.

IMI is a subsidiary of AMI.

“This type of hands-on training offers members of the marina industry a real nuts-and-bolts approach to marina design,” Groenewold added. “You will leave this workshop with applicable knowledge because you will be compelled to get involved and participate.”

Attendees will choose an existing marina and work in small teams to perform a case study. The teams will then redesign the facilities, increasing their overall ability to design, upgrade and maintain marina facilities. Each group will present its findings and suggestions to the rest of the participants.

    We own 17 Marinas, and if it is not too late, I would like to add one of them to the candidates that are being “made over”.
    The marina is the Bohemia Vista Marina, in the Bohemia River basin near Chesapeake City in the northeastern arm of Chesapeake Bay.
    I was one of the group doing the make over last year and am familiar with it.
    Bohemia Vista is an ideal candidate, as it was pretty much destroyed by a series of storms several years ago. We have re-built about 60-70% of it, but could use some ideas on what direction to take what remains to be done.
