The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association's Summer Symposium is scheduled for Aug. 2-3 at the Hilton Mystic in Mystic, Conn.

"Based on what we learned at our highly successful inaugural event last year, the ABBRA Summer Symposium promises to be a great chance for the marine service industry and affiliated partners to benefit from the purpose-driven content and networking opportunities available at this gathering," ABBRA president Doug Domenie says in a statement.

The two-day symposium includes panel seminars from industry leaders, attendee-led roundtable discussions on current issues, and a keynote presentation. Registrants may also participate in a field trip to two area boatyards to see regional best practices firsthand.
