The International Marina Institute posted a call for presentations for its fall conference, "Increasing Marina Profits in the New Economy: From Surviving to Thriving," Oct. 23-25 in Fort Lauderdale.

IMI staff asks that proposals focus on new profit ideas, ways to use an existing marina footprint to its maximum capacity and methods for surviving and thriving in the new economy

Specifically, IMI is looking for proposals on marina reconstruction projects that have been developed and/or completed within the last three years; retrofit plans for maximizing a current footprint; real ideas for streamlining business systems and processes; financing for these types of projects; permitting and related business issues; technical engineering; marketing and social networking; and best profit ideas.
