lembo0108

The International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference named Elaine Lembo as the new seminar manager for IBEX 2015, slated for Sept. 15-17 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

Lembo was previously with Cruising World magazine, where she worked for 16 years in the editorial department, most recently as deputy editor of the North American monthly devoted to those who explore the world under sail.

"We are thrilled to welcome Elaine to the team; she is a seasoned marine industry professional who will bring a fresh perspective to her new role as IBEX seminar manager,” IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement.

“We are confident she will develop an exceptional technical educational program, working in conjunction with our partners Professional BoatBuilder magazine and the events' education partners — ABYC, ABBRA and NMMA. Elaine has already hit the ground running, as the deadline of Jan. 30 is quickly approaching for the seminar proposals."

Building on the recent event in Tampa, which attracted 500 people to the seminar program, the 2015 IBEX Seminar Series will offer technical education ranging from fundamental skills to advanced training and is designed for shop floor crew, technicians and company officers.

Industry experts will offer attendees insight and information on problems they need solved, new materials and regulations, and other current industry topics.

Proposals for seminars should be sent to seminars@ibexshow.com by Jan. 30.

Lembo has written and edited for newspapers that include The Washington Post, the Providence Journal and the Vineyard Gazette.
