Producers of the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference are reporting strong preregistration for the trade show, which opens Monday.

The numbers are slightly off from last year’s record figures, but given the current economic climate, IBEX co-director Carl Cramer says he is “pleased to see such a strong preshow indicator for our numbers.”

Cramer said the interest is especially strong among international boatbuilders. As of yesterday, marine professionals from 64 countries had registered to attend. He said the IBEX seminar program has also seen high registration numbers — more than 2,000 so far.
