For three days this fall, boatbuilders and marine industry professionals will have access to a seminar series offering everything from fundamental skills to cutting-edge advanced training at the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference.

The Sept. 15-17 event returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville after a year in Tampa, Fla.

There will be 55 seminars in eight tracks: Composite Methods & Materials; Design & Engineering; Survey & Repair; Marine Electrical Systems; Manufacturing Management & Policy; Onboard Systems; ProBoat Editors' Picks; and Boatyard & Marina Operations.

"IBEX's annual challenge is to design a program of seminars that are useful to all," Professional BoatBuilder editor Aaron Porter said in a statement. "We do that best with direct input from our attendees, telling us what topics they want to see included, problems they need solved, new materials and regulations they would like explained, and even presenters they want to hear, regardless of the specific topic."
