The Jan. 28-29 Refit International Exhibition & Conference will co-locate with the Jan. 27-29 International Marina and Boatyard Conference next year at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.
The refit conference is Professional BoatBuilder magazine's new annual trade event for large yacht refit professionals. Refit International will feature 24 technical seminars and an exhibition hall dedicated to products and technologies available to the industry.
"We are delighted to have the opportunity to share space with the refit show and creating an opportunity to connect each of our audiences and provide them with access to the broadest array of vendors and content," IMBC event coordinator Kate Stanley said in a statement.
Although Refit International and IMBC are different, aiming to attract different audiences, there will be an opportunity for cross-show networking that leverages the similarities between the marina and refit industries. Attendees will be able to use their conference badges to check out each show throughout the three days the exhibit hall is open.
