The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference announced a new marina and yard pavilion for the 2017 show, which is set for Sept. 19-21 at the Tampa Convention Center.

Organizers said the new pavilion will serve the hundreds of marina and yard professionals who attend IBEX and are eager to see and learn about advancements in equipment, products and services for the marina, yard and repair segment of the recreational marine industry.

IBEX's Education Conference will expand its training and seminar content for this group.

"We have been working diligently on planning and creating new and exciting feature areas for the 2017 event," IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement.

"In an effort to better serve our current marina and yard attendees, we are creating a dedicated pavilion to showcase the new product and technology development in this important sector of our industry."
