ICOMIA Webinar Series Starts Tomorrow


The World Marinas Conference is holding its Industry Reconnect webinar series starting Oct. 6 and running through Oct. 27 in four sessions.

Each session will run 90 minutes and provide an opportunity for questions and answers, according to the International Council of Marine Industry Associations, the group that organized the event.

ICOMIA has made the webinar series free in an effort to bring all facets of the industry together as it faces the coronavirus pandemic. The webinar series begins Oct. 6 at 10 a.m. UTC with a snapshot of the global state of the industry.

Session two, set for Oct. 13 at 11 a.m. UTC, will explore what’s next for boating and international tourism with the ongoing pandemic.

The third session, planned for Oct. 20 at 11 a.m. UTC, will focus on technology looking forward. The final session, “Vision of Change,” will take place Oct. 27 at noon.
