The International Marina and Boatyard Conference posted a call for presenters, seeking speaker proposal submissions.

The 2016 conference, produced by the Association of Marina Industries, is scheduled for Jan. 27-29 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

The IMBC said presentations should be designed for intermediate to advanced levels of experience without overt company or product promotions.

The IMBC said it will evaluate the submissions and assign them to one of more than 25 breakout sessions and seminars, which are organized by coastal, inland, boatyard and marina design and engineering tracks.

Within those tracks, the topics will include: marina operations, emergency response tactics, construction, legal considerations for marinas on federally leased lands, boatyard operations, marketing, management, revenue generation, expense management, customer service, environmental issues, human resources and marina law.

Plenary sessions will focus on business topics that appeal to the entire IMBC audience.

All submissions are due by May 8.
