IBEX organizers release seminar lineup

Organizers of the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference today unveiled details of the 2008 seminar series for the international boatbuilding and repair industries.

“IBEX is where boatbuilders learn to make progress happen,” said Carl Cramer, IBEX show co-director and publisher of Professional BoatBuilder magazine, in a statement.

IBEX 2008 will be held Oct. 6-8 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

The seminar lineup offers 53 in-depth sessions in 10 professional tracks. Seminar topics range from Design & Compliance of Boat Fuel Systems to Advanced Wood-Composite Construction. All of today’s advanced boatbuilding technology is covered and presented by more than 100 industry professionals, said Cramer.

“No other marine event offers the wealth of information that is available in just three days at IBEX,” said Kathleen Clickett, IBEX show co-director and trade-events manager for the National Marine Manufacturers Association. “IBEX is the global marine industry’s standard for growth and education. Professional boatbuilders worldwide are encouraged to begin planning for each of their three days at the show as soon as possible to ensure their seat in the more popular sessions.”

In conjunction with the conference series, IBEX 2008 will host more than 700 exhibitors in four exhibit halls. IBEX also features three special pavilion areas and a 10,000-square-foot outdoor demonstration area featuring industry professionals utilizing the newest products in real-world applications.

IBEX is owned and produced by Professional BoatBuilder and NMMA. The 2008 technical seminar program is organized and produced by Professional BoatBuilder, WoodenBoat magazine, NMMA and the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association.
