A new smart phone application was launched for the 2011 International Marina & Boatyard Conference, scheduled for Jan. 26-28 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.
The IMBC developed the free mobile phone application to give its participants access to "on the go" show schedules, a list of exhibitors and sponsors, hotel information, local area guidance and conference alerts.
"This is a highly effective method for us to get important information to our exhibitors and attendees," said Jim Frye, president and chairman of the Association of Marina Industries, in a statement. "We encourage all of our conference participants to download the app so they have the latest conference information in the palm of their hands."
The new phone app, developed in partnership with Beyond 2000 Software/B2K Systems Inc., is available on Google Android, iPhone, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices.
