Sherman will work directly with show co-owner Professional BoatBuilder magazine to manage the seminar series and the educational content of IBEX. She has held positions in advertising at Professional BoatBuilder and WoodenBoat magazines since 2004 and as part of the show management team for The WoodenBoat Show since 2007. IBEX said her experience in advertising management, customer service and event operations and promotions uniquely qualify her to manage the educational content of IBEX.

"I am thrilled to have Laura Sherman as part of the IBEX team,” IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement. “She is extremely capable and a pleasure to work with. I am confident that all of our IBEX seminar partners and speakers will enjoy working with her.”

IBEX is owned and produced by Professional BoatBuilder and the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The IBEX Seminar Series is produced by Professional BoatBuilder, along with the American Boat and Yacht Council, the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association and the NMMA, and it offers technical seminars to train new shop crew or help seasoned employees improve their skills.

In 2014, IBEX will offer hands-on training in the exhibit hall, in the outdoor demonstration area, at dockside and on the water. The show will be Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla., for the first time as it begins an alternating schedule with Louisville, Ky.
