IMBC adds Casino Night to schedule

The International Marina & Boatyard Conference, scheduled for Jan. 30 through Feb. 1 in Fort Lauderdale, now features a Casino Night with roulette, blackjack and craps.

Open to all full conference registrants and exhibitors, Casino Night will take place on from 8:15-11 p.m. Jan. 31 on the exhibit floor.

“IMBC is more than a conference. We traditionally hold networking events that are both fun and interesting,” Association of Marina Industries president Jim Frye said in a statement. “Casino Night allows IMBC participants to enjoy themselves and get to know each other in a casual environment.”

Other social and educational events at IMBC include a marina and boatyard field trip, a first-time attendee gathering, an Oktoberfest-themed beer-tasting party during the exhibit hall opening reception, a private dinner and roundtable for certified marina managers and a golf tournament to raise money for the Neil Ross Fund, an educational scholarship.

This year’s IMBC will feature an extended seminar series, with professional speakers as well as experts within the marine industry, and will include hands-on workshops and breakout sessions sorted into specific coastal, inland and boatyard and service tracks.

Casino Night will include exhibitor-sponsored prizes and there will be a station set up for cocktails.
