IMBC seeks presenters for 2014 conference

The International Marina & Boatyard Conference posted a call for presenters for its 2014 conference, which will be held Jan. 29-31 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

The call was posted on the IMBC website. The conference is produced by the Association of Marina Industries.

Presentations should be designed for intermediate to advanced levels of experience without overt product or company promotions, the AMI said.

IMBC breakout seminars will be organized by coastal, inland, boatyard and engineering tracks. Within those tracks, topics will include marina operations, emergency response tactics, construction, legal considerations for marinas on federally leased lands, boatyard operations, marketing, management, revenue generation, expense management, customer service, environmental issues, human resources and marina law. Plenary sessions will focus on business topics, which appeal to the entire IMBC audience.

“It is important to hear from the industry when developing the IMBC educational program,” AMI chairman Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “The proposals we receive help us ensure that the program speaks to our audience.”

The deadline for submitting presentations is April 26. For guidelines and information, visit www.marinaassociation.org/imbc/education/seminars.
