Drystack organizers report large exhibitor participation

With double the exhibitor participation, this year’s Drystack Conference was deemed a “huge success” by organizers.

The eighth annual conference, presented by the International Marina Institute, was held Oct. 26-28 in West Palm Beach, Fla., and more than 125 marina industry professionals from around the world came to learn about the newest technologies in drystack storage and equipment.

The event included more than a dozen educational seminars, 22 exhibiting companies, and several networking opportunities. The conference concluded with an interactive session of industry leaders and attendees in a panel format.

At the close of the conference, 31 marina professionals embarked on a study tour of eight marinas and boatyards throughout Southeast Florida. They were able to learn from the marina managers about their best profit ideas and practices, and later participated in a roundtable discussion with the tour hosts.
