The schedule-at-a-glance for the 2012 International Marina & Boatyard Conference is available on the show's website, organizers announced.

The conference, produced by the Association of Marina Industries, is scheduled for Feb. 1-3, 2012, at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The IMBC 2012 schedule features a number of additions to its traditional schedule, including a golf tournament, a backstage tour of the Walt Disney World Resort, an AMI member reception and an IMBC 10th anniversary reception.

"We continue to add to the IMBC schedule to meet the needs of attendees and to increase the value of their experiences at IMBC," AMI president and chairman Jim Frye said in a statement. "Participant feedback indicates that attendees want more sessions and activities, as well as optimal time to walk the exhibit floor and talk to vendors. These additions only further validate that IMBC is a one-stop shop offering everything marina industry professionals need to successfully run their businesses."
