Organizers said the country recently has seen more movement on marine development than in the last 17 years.

The two-day business-to-business conference is an opportunity to establish contacts and ensure that participant businesses are ready to engage the emerging market.

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.
