Refit show signs sponsor for 2018 event

The 2018 Refit Show will be held Jan. 10-11 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

The Triton is partnering with organizers of the 2018 Refit International Exhibition & Conference to support expanded exhibit sales and a more in-depth conference program.

The Triton, a Fort Lauderdale-based monthly news magazine for captains and crew, will leverage its international readership to develop targeted seminars for captains and crew while also introducing its advertisers to the exhibit opportunities.

The 2018 Refit Show will be held Jan. 10-11 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Organizers said the show will double the size of its exhibit hall and increase its seminar options from 15 to 24. Other educational partners also will contribute to the conference program, including training schools and industry associations. The show is also adding more networking events and live product demonstrations.

"The Triton and the Refit Show have a natural symmetry," Refit Show director Jim Miller said in a statement. "We believe the support and feedback of the newspaper's editors, writers and readers will significantly enrich the educational and professional networking opportunities the Refit Show delivers."

The Triton has been endorsing the show since its first year in 2016.

"Refits are a significant part of any yacht's life, and the captains and crew who manage and work them learn a tremendous amount about the boats they run and entrust their lives to," The Triton publisher Lucy Reed said. "This is a brilliant idea for a conference, and it's a perfect fit for us to help bring shipyard and project managers in front of captains and crew so they can learn from each other to have better refit experiences."

Exhibit sales for the Refit Show will begin in May. Organizers will announce the full seminar series in late summer. Show registration opens in the fall.
