Registration is open for the Association of Marina Industries Conference and Expo, scheduled for Feb. 1-3 at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The event was previously known as the International Marina and Boatyard Conference.

“In-person events are back, and we are excited to be a part of that,” AMI chair Chris Petty said in a statement. “This will be our first year in our new location and with our new name. … Although the name has changed, the conference has not. It continues to be the place where marina and boatyard professionals come for personal and professional growth and networking that can build life-long relationships.”

The conference tracks include:

• Building Your Dream Team

• What Does the Future Hold?

• Customer Experience: Lessons from the Masters

• Leading Your Organization for Positive Impact

• Marina and Boatyard Management and Operations

• Marina Design and Engineering
