The International Marina and Boatyard Conference has posted a call for presenters for the event, which is scheduled for Jan. 25-27 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.
Organizers said presentations should be designed for intermediate to advanced levels of experience without overt company or product promotions.
Submissions will be evaluated by the IMBC, including conference producer Association of Marina Industries, and assigned to one of more than 25 breakout sessions and seminars.
These are organized by coastal, inland, boatyard and marina design and engineering tracks. Within the tracks, 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.
