Publish date:

The International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference has added a free special session on Wednesday to discuss the impact of Hurricane Irma.

Industry professionals will provide advice, assistance, tips and resources for hurricane recovery.

The session will be held from 11 a.m. to noon in Room 12 at the Tampa Convention Center.

IBEX show director Anne Dunbar thanked IBEX exhibitors and attendees and said in a statement that the decision to move forward with the show “was not made lightly. We have been following the devastation in Florida from Hurricane Irma and are very aware of the impact the storm has had, and will continue to have, on the marine industry as a whole.

“I am hopeful that bringing the industry together so soon after this hurricane will begin many critical conversations and partnerships on offering assistance and devising ways to help our fellow marine industry professionals in the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Irma.”
