The International Marina Institute, a subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries, is hosting its 10th Drystack Conference Oct. 27-28 in Fort Lauderdale as part of its series of annual fall events.

“We’re excited to bring back the popular Drystack Conference,” AMI chairman Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “New technologies and recent projects make this an important time to offer this event and educate our members on the most up-to-date information.”

Scheduled just before the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the two-day Drystack Conference is a professional-development opportunity for those interested in the latest in drystack technology as part of their daily business responsibilities. The event will feature a day and a half of seminars, exhibits and networking receptions. The seminars will primarily focus on the business of drystack storage, current trends, new technologies and recent and upcoming projects.

The conference will take place at the B Ocean Hotel.

IMI’s annual Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour will follow the Drystack Conference on Oct. 29-30. The tour will be based out of the B Ocean Hotel and will consist of tours of area marinas and boatyards, as well as a facilitated discussion on each property.
