The Association of Marina Industries is accepting ideas for its second annual Best Profit Ideas Award.

Ideas received by Oct. 30 will be reviewed and considered and the top three will be presented during a panel session at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference Jan. 28-30, 2015, at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.

Members of the industry are invited to send in an idea that helped improve their business and increase their profits. Ideas will be reviewed by three certified marina managers serving as judges.

The top three ideas will be presented during the conference. The IMBC audience will choose a winner, who will receive an iPad, a free AMI membership and complimentary registration for IMBC in 2016.

"Our attendees benefit from idea sharing," AMI chairman Jeff Rose said in a statement. "The well-received Best Profit Ideas Award last year proves this. We are excited to offer this for a second year."

Last year's winner was Roxanne Rockvam, of Rockvam Boat Yards on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota, for her updated online boat-rental reservation system, which increased her facility's gross income by 28 percent in one season.
