The conference would be of interest to marine industry association members and representatives; boatbuilders, dock and equipment manufacturers; Colombian boat and luxury item dealers; marina engineers, consultants, designers and planners; maritime lawyers and insurance representatives; boat accessory manufacturers and distributors; yacht and charter brokers; investors; government personnel; and tourist agents.
