IMBC adds best-profit award for 2014

The Association of Marina Industries is collecting Best Profit Ideas from marina professionals and plans to offer an award at the 2014 International Marina and Boatyard Conference, which is set for Jan. 29-31 in Fort Lauderdale.

Ideas collected will be reviewed by three certified marina managers and narrowed down to three ideas that will be presented in a panel session at the IMBC. The audience will vote on a winner.

All three ideas will be included in an article in the AMI’s December newsletter and the winner will be featured again in February. The winner will receive a free one-year AMI membership, a complimentary registration to IMBC in 2015 and an iPad.

Idea submissions are due Oct. 30.
