IMI offers marina course to IBEX attendees

Organizers said the four-hour course is geared toward people who have little or no marina experience.

The International Marina Institute is offering those who attend the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference a chance to attend a marina industry introduction course Sept. 18 in Tampa, Fla.

Organizers said the four-hour course is geared toward people who have little or no marina experience and are looking to get into the industry by way of a career shift or an interest in purchasing or developing a marina.

Marina 101 — called “Walk the Docks: First Impressions” — offers two sessions within the course, each about two hours long. The first session will look at the here and now of marina operations, and the second will look into the future and what people need to know about being part of a marina for the long term.

The cost for members of the Association of Marina Industries is $250; nonmembers will be charged $295.

The Tampa Area Marina and Boatyard Study Tour will take place Sept. 18-19 and lead into IBEX, which is scheduled for Sept. 19-21 at the Tampa Convention Center.

The tour will visit seven marinas in the Tampa area. The cost of the tour is $750 for AMI members and $795 for nonmembers.
