Marketing strategists Al Ries and Laura Ries will offer a special presentation - FOCUS For Boatbuilders: The Future of Your Company Depends on It - at the International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference in October.

"The unparalleled insights offered by Al and [his daughter] Laura Ries at IBEX 2009 will prove to be invaluable to all marine industry professionals who attend and could be a pivotal moment for anyone looking to confirm their business plan and discover proven solutions on how to not only survive but to grow and expand your business even in challenging times," said Carl Cramer, show co-director and Professional Boatbuilder magazine publisher, in a statement.

The Rieses are the authors of five books: "The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding," "The 11 Immutable Laws of Internet Branding," "The Fall of Advertising & the Rise of PR," "The Origin of Brands," and their newly released "War in the Boardroom."

FOCUS derives from Al Ries' updated book of the same name in 2005. It is centered on the premise that long-lasting success depends on focusing on core products and eschewing the temptation to diversify into unrelated enterprises.

IBEX will offer a limited number of tickets to the presentation to exhibitors in good standing, then to attendees. Registration to the special event will open in June at www.ibexshow.com.
