The International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference is partnering with two well-known Louisville-based distilleries to stage the first "IBEX Bourbon Experience" All-Industry Party during the last hour of the show from 5-6 p.m. on Oct. 3.

Bourbon bars will be set up at strategic locations throughout the IBEX exhibit hall. Attendees can sample a variety of bourbon for only 50 cents and talk with bourbon experts from Wild Turkey and Brown & Forman, two well-known national bourbon distilleries that will be on hand to share their knowledge of the bourbon-making craft at each location.

“The IBEX Bourbon Experience celebrates our connection with Louisville and its well-known ‘Bourbon Trail’,” Carl Cramer, IBEX co-director and publisher of Professional BoatBuilder magazine, said in a statement.

“A party in the exhibit hall during the last hour of the show is an excellent networking opportunity and an IBEX tradition. This is just one of the networking events we have in store at this year’s IBEX. The Tuesday night Fourth Street Live outdoor concert and party will take place in the heart of Louisville’s premier entertainment and nightlife district. And your IBEX badge is your ticket to discounts and special offers at scores of Louisville’s finest restaurants, night spots and attractions during the three days of the show.”

IBEX will be held Oct. 2-4 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
