Jennifer Thompson, senior vice president of National Marine Manufacturers Association shows, is the new president of the International Federation of Boat Show Organizers. The announcement was made June 7 in Split, Croatia, during the organization’s annual conference. She replaces Goetz-Ulf Jungmichael after he served three two-year tenures.
“I am honored to be part of this impressive group of professionals representing the leading boat shows in the world,” Thompson said in a statement. “Over the next two years we plan to focus on how we can further collaborate, particularly on the topic of sustainability and our commitment made last year to reduce and eliminate single-use plastics in our shows as part of the #ReThinkPlastic campaign.”
IFSBO is made up of member organizations that represent recreational boat shows around the world. It provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and development of cooperation between members.
