There will be a full-day “super session” focused on workforce development Sept. 30, held in conjunction with the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference.
The session — Challenges and Solutions in Workforce Development — will be the first gathering of industry stakeholders to discuss the employment environment. With a limit of 100 attendees, it expected to sell out, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
Attendees will examine workforce development efforts; explore best practices at the local, regional and state levels; and learn how to establish best approaches for their companies.
The session will be held at the Tampa Convention Center from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The early-bird rate is $75, which includes lunch.
IBEX runs Oct. 1-3 in Tampa, Fla.
