The Yachting Symposium & Job Fair for businesses, professionals and crew in the industry will return for a second year Oct. 9-10 to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center & Waterfront Conference Facility.

The event is designed for business managers, junior and senior crew, consultants, regulatory authorities, experts and developers.

The 2014 agenda offers 21 sessions, a Networking and Collaboration Terrace, a Job Fair and Mastermind Discussions over two full days. The hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.

Symposium organizers said they are striving this year to provide jobbing and career opportunities, as well as deliver topics and discussions to benefit businesses, professionals and those who want to get into the industry.

"We see the need for people and companies [in the yachting industry] to come together for the success of their businesses and to advance their careers. The industry will be stronger, and this is a platform for that to happen," event manager Deena Tanner said in a statement. "This year we are focusing on jobs and careers and company exposure through education. We have a panel of yacht owners and many industry experts speaking at the symposium.”
