"We are looking forward to celebrating our 25th IBEX show this year in Louisville and bringing the marine industry together for this milestone event," IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement.

"IBEX 2015 is already shaping up to be the best event ever, with the addition of several new show experiences focusing on trends, materials and technology,” Dunbar said. “As our industry continues to rebound, we look forward to sharing the future of marine technology and innovation with our attendees in Louisville in September.”
