IBEX sells out floor space for 2014 show

Show floor space is sold out for the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference, which will take place Sept. 29-Oct. 2 at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.

The event will host 510 exhibitors, of which 102 are new for 2014, on a show floor that will have nearly 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, dock space, on-the-water demonstrations, three new pavilions and special feature areas, including The Connected Boat and Material Connexion.

"The industry understands the power of IBEX," IBEX show director Anne Dunbar said in a statement. "IBEX is where the future of boating begins and offers attendees thousands of new products, hundreds of hours of continuing education and dozens of networking opportunities, making the event the leader in marine innovation and technology."

"The show floor is officially sold out and we have started a waiting list," IBEX sales director Tina Sanderson added. "Any company interested in exhibiting should contact us immediately to get their name added to the wait list. Space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, and we will do what we can to accommodate as many companies as possible between now and opening day.
