The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference announced education and product sessions highlighting electrification technology for this year’s show.
The propulsion systems will be discussed in eight sessions, conference organizers said in a statement. IBEX is scheduled for Sept. 27-29 at the Tampa Convention Center.
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers will present the preconference session “Design of Electric & Hybrid Propulsion Systems for Small Craft” on Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Seminars to be held Sept. 27-28 will address additional topics, plus decarbonization, the National Electrical Code, lithium-ion standards, compliance, marina electrical infrastructure, and variable refrigerant volume air conditioning.
“As the recreational boating industry looks to the future with a keen focus on electrification and next-generation propulsion systems, it is crucial that industry leaders take advantage of opportunities that educate and discuss the practical realities, challenges and opportunities … when considering what the future of boating looks like,” said Frank Hugelmeyer, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association, a co-owner of the show, along with RAI Amsterdam.
