Registration is open for the 2018 International Marina & Boatyard Conference, which will be held from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2 in New Orleans.

Produced by the Association of Marina Industries, the conference will be at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

“IMBC is always the perfect place for our industry to come together to learn about new trends, create important professional relationships and challenge each other on the way we think about our businesses,” AMI chairman Brad Gross, a certified marina manager, said in a statement.

“We are very excited to be in New Orleans for the first time in IMBC’s 16-year history. New Orleans is rich with culture and it provides new opportunities and inspiration for content, locations for our popular marina field trip and a new market for our exhibitors to reach through our show.”

Full conference passes start at $389 and include unlimited access to all seminars, roundtables, workshops, food and beverages; exhibit hall entry; and admittance to networking events.

This year’s event also includes a New Orleans-inspired social night; an AMI member meeting, followed by a first-time attendee reception; and the IMBC's opening night exhibit hall party on Jan. 31.

Preregistration rates will be available until Jan. 26.
