IMBC returns to Tampa for 2015

The International Marina & Boatyard Conference will return Jan. 28-30, 2015, at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Fla.

“We are looking forward to returning to Tampa,” Jeff Rose, chairman of show producer the Association of Marina Industries, said in a statement. “The show has seen success in Tampa and the city offers numerous waterfront properties for conference events.”

The IMBC will host most conference events, such as receptions, seminars and workshops, at the Tampa Convention Center. Discounted room blocks will be offered at the Marriott Tampa Waterside and The Westin Tampa Harbour Island.

“Tampa’s many restaurants, activities and entertainment opportunities make it a desirable location for IMBC participants,” Rose said. “In addition, Tampa is readily accessible for many, and the area around the Tampa Convention Center is easy to navigate. We are excited to return.”
