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

Seminar topics for the 2015 conference include marina industry trends; design and engineering considerations for construction projects; planning for a successful dredging project; reducing income taxes; preparing for ice in your marina; and updates on dry storage.

"It is where we gather to keep abreast on trends, discuss new ideas, talk to suppliers and create important professional relationships. It is how we improve our businesses and find continued success."
