The 2019 IBEX Innovation Awards has received more than 104 entries from more than 80 companies, the most submitted in the program’s history. Managed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and judged by members of Boating Writers International, the program recognizes new products for the recreational boating market.
“We are honored to host and award the largest collection of IBEX Innovation Awards in the program’s history at IBEX this year,” Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director, said in a statement. “This is a testament to the product development we celebrate at IBEX, and we applaud our exhibitors for their hard work in pushing our industry forward. We look forward to seeing what is new and what is next in the marine industry.”
The awards program entries will be displayed at IBEX on Innovation Way, which is located on the second floor in the Rotunda at the Tampa Convention Center throughout the show. The awards will be presented during the annual IBEX Industry Breakfast on October 1 in the Grand Ballroom at the Tampa Waterside Marriott.
