IMBC registration now under way

Registration for the International Marina and Boatyard Conference is now open.

Produced by the Association of Marina Industries, the conference will take place Jan. 29-31 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Full-conference passes start at $379 and include access to all seminars, roundtables and workshops, entry to the exhibit hall and admission to all networking events.

Seminar topics for the 2014 conference include a boat hoist panel, information on federal permitting and financial strategies for upgrading a marina and a special Clean Marina workshop. For an additional fee, a conference pass includes a field trip, lunch and tours of three area marinas and boatyards.

“We encourage industry professionals to register early to make sure they get a space in IMBC’s special limited-attendance workshops,” AMI chairman Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “Plus, we will be holding a special Clean Marina workshop and reception this year, and we’re adding a new Marina Design and Engineering track. There is so much going on this year it might be hard to choose.”
