IMBC sells out exhibit floor spacePosted on
The International Marina & Boatyard Conference said it sold out its exhibit floor space two weeks before the show for the first time in its history.
The IMBC, organized and produced by the Association of Marina Industries, is scheduled for Jan. 25-27 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.
Organizers said the IMBC sales staff is also reporting higher booth sales than ever before. More than 140 booths have been sold to more than 120 companies represented.
A waiting list is available for companies that still want to exhibit at the show.
Organizers said the show will complement its exhibit floor with 30 seminars, keynotes, breakout sessions and workshops and a field trip to area marinas and boatyards.
“IMBC is the biggest marina-specific show in the U.S.,” AMI chairman Brad Gross said in a statement. “We are well-known for our networking events, our education and training, and for bringing in some of the most relevant and influential exhibitors and attendees in the industry. The quality of attendance at IMBC is astounding.”
The IMBC’s networking events include an opening night reception, a first-time attendee reception, a pub crawl and an exclusive CMM 25th Anniversary dinner for certified marina managers and operators who have completed the AMI’s training.
