Online registration is now available for the 2009 International Marina & Boatyard Conference, scheduled for Jan. 25-28, 2009 in Fort Lauderdale.

The Association of Marina Industries and the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association, who own and operate the conference, are offering an online option for registration this year, though traditional registration options also are available.

By registering before Dec. 1, participants will receive $50 off the price of the conference.

IMBC is the only show designed specifically for marina operators, managers and staff, as well as boat repairers and boatyard professionals. Over the course of three days, nearly 600 attendees will choose from a dozen seminars, product demos and roundtable discussions. There also is an exhibit hall, which remains open for the duration of the event.

For information and to register, call (401) 682-7334, or visit: www.marinaassociation.org/imbc.
