IMI opens registration for Drystack Conference

The International Marina Institute, the training subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries, is now accepting exhibitor and sponsorship registration for its Drystack Conference, which runs Oct. 27–28.

“The exhibits at the Drystack Conference offer industry suppliers the opportunity to talk directly to marina decision makers,” AMI chairman Gary Groenewold said in a statement. “Plus, it provides our members with information regarding the products and services that can help them run their businesses more efficiently. Creating these types of connections is an important goal of AMI.”

The conference takes place at the B Ocean Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Exhibit rates are $1,500 for AMI members and $1,995 for non-members. Sponsorships are $2,500.
