Registration is open for the International Marina and Boatyard Conference, which takes place Jan. 23-25 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Florida. The conference is produced by the Association of Marina Industries.

Full-conference passes start at $399 and include access to educational seminars, roundtables, workshops, food and beverages, entry into the exhibit hall and admission to networking events.

Social events include Casino Night, an AMI member meeting followed by a first-time attendee reception and the opening night exhibit hall party.

A new track for this year, “Ahead of the Curve,” focuses on future trends and industry innovation. Another new offering is Marina 101, a preconference session that provides training for entry-level staff.

Sessions address such topics as solar piers and excess energy revenue sources, erosion control, managing multigenerational teams, design considerations for the Americans with Disabilities Act and more.

"IMBC continues to be the place where marina and boatyard professionals come for personal and professional growth and networking to build lifelong relationships. It is the annual event for our industry," said AMI chair and certified marina manager Joe Riley in a statement.
