The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference provided details of this year’s industry and international pavilions at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida. Organizers said that the new layout will enhance the visitor experience.
Show organizers said in a statement that the Marina and Yard pavilion will be on the first floor of the convention center. The third floor will include Compliance, Standards and Education; Composites; and the National Marine Electronics Association’s Connected Boat Experience.
“As we continue to grow the number of exhibiting companies, our pavilions are expanding every year,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director, in the statement. “Organizing our exhibits by product and service type allows our visitors to better plan their time at the Show.”
IBEX organizers said 70 international companies from 23 countries will exhibit at the show. The countries include the United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium, China, Taiwan and the Netherlands. IBEX has expanded the Country Pavilions to include Australia, (organized by AIMEX), France (Business France), Italy (UCINA), Slovenia (SPIRIT Slovenia), and South Korea (KINTEX).
