IBEX secures Florida venue through 2020

The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference will be held at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida through 2020.

The show will take place Oct. 2-4 this year, Oct. 1-3 in 2019, and Sept. 29-Oct. 1 in 2020.

“Tampa has proven to be an ideal location for IBEX since we relocated there in 2014, and I am very pleased to share our future dates through 2020,” IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement.

“The waterfront location and easy access to the dock space at the Tampa Convention Center, combined with the walkability to restaurants and hotels, make Tampa a perfect convention city for the marine industry,” Dunbar said.
