Organizers of the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference announced that registration for the trade show is now open. The event will be held Oct. 1-3 at the Tampa Convention Center in Florida. IBEX is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and RAI Amsterdam.

“The entire IBEX team has been working tirelessly to prepare for the opening of registration, and we are thrilled to now share the many new experiences being offered this year for all visitors,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director, in today’s Currents e-newsletter. “We have so much planned for this year’s show — you’ll find a packed education conference, many new special events and nightly networking events.”

The show will comprise three exhibit halls, outdoor displays and demos on the IBEX docks. It also offers training and education from industry experts and associations.

Special events include:

  • Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers Small Craft Technology Symposium
  • Grow Boating Marketing Summit
  • IBEX Special Seminar: Return to Thunderboat Row

Country Pavilions will include exhibitors from South Korea, Australia, France, Slovenia and Italy. The show’s third floor will feature such Specialty Pavilions as the Composites Pavilion; the Compliance, Standards and Education Pavilion; and the newly branded NMEA Connected Boat Experience Pavilion. The Marina and Yard Pavilion is located on the first floor.

“Throughout the summer, we will be sending out information to help you plan your IBEX experience,” Dunbar said.
