The International Marina and Boatyard Conference announced that it will return to the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale after a record-breaking year that saw the most attendees in conference history.
Discounted room blocks will be offered at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina — Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach — A Doubletree by Hilton.
IMBC 2016, produced by the Association of Marina Industries, will include receptions for exhibitors and conferees, seminars, workshops, keynote speakers and the Best Profit Idea Awards.
“The 2015 IMBC content was superb, very informative and with spot-on topics everyone was interested in,” AMI chairman Jeff Rose said in a statement. “As the AMI’s CMM program continues to grow, we announced the designation of eight new CMMs and one new CMO.”
“Each time I walked the floor to speak with various vendors to get their thoughts regarding the show, not only were they very pleased with the turnout, but their booths were busy with marina operators purchasing products and services,” Rose said. “It was fantastic to see.”
