This year's International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference, set for Oct. 17-19 in Louisville, Ky., will feature the most expansive seminar series in the show's 21-year history.

More than 100 industry authorities will conduct 91 educational seminars, a 30 percent increase from 2010.

The IBEX 2011 seminar series has 14 specialized tracks covering Design and Engineering – Power, Composites Methods and Materials, Survey and Repair, Wood and Metal, Marine Electrical Systems, Onboard Systems, Boatyard Operations, Manufacturing Management, and Education and Training; plus four new tracks and the second annual Dealer Development track, which this year will be produced by Soundings Trade Only.

“The IBEX seminar series sets the standard for education in the marine industry, which has become a vital component to its ability to grow and flourish,” Professional Boatbuilder magazine publisher and show co-director Carl Cramer said in a statement. “The success of our industry is about what you know and constant innovation. With the addition of more than 30 new seminars and topics that address all facets of the boating business, IBEX offers great value for everyone from the manufacturer to the dealer’s service and parts manager.”
