Booth sales up for 2010 IMBC

Sales of exhibit hall booth space for the upcoming International Marina & Boatyard Conference are outpacing 2009 figures, organizers say.

The show, which is produced by the Association of Marina industries, is set for Jan. 27-29 at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida.

"We have more booths contracted now for the 2010 show than we had last year at this time," said Roy Clark, IMBC sales coordinator, in a statement. "We are pleased with the pace of sales up to this point in the year."

Organizers say 60 percent of the floor has been sold, with just under five months to go until the show opens.

"Given the economic circumstances facing the industry, we are encouraged by these early booth registrations and expect full participation," said Jim Frye, president and chair of the AMI, in a statement. "Vendors, as well as attendees, realize that coming together to network, discuss issues and trends and support each other is even more important during these challenging times."
