The International Marina & Boatyard Conference, scheduled for Feb. 1-3 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., released a free mobile device application for a second year.

The app offers participants access to show schedules, a list of exhibitors and sponsors, hotel information, local area guidance and conference alerts.

“The phone app was a huge success last year, with over 800 downloads,” AMI president and chairman Jim Frye, said in a statement. “It’s clear that the app is an effective way to provide important information to participants. We’re happy to be able to offer this again.”

The phone app is available on Google Android, iPhone, Blackberry and Windows mobile devices.
