The Triton partners with Refit show

Ft. Lauderdale-based The Triton, a monthly news magazine for captains and crew, is partnering with organizers of the 2018 Refit International Exhibition & Conference to support expanded exhibit sales and a more in-depth conference program.

The third annual Refit Show will take place Jan. 10-11 at the Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale. The 2018 Refit Show will double the size of its exhibit hall and increase its seminar options from 15 to 24.

“The Triton and the Refit Show have a natural symmetry,” said Jim Miller, Refit Show director. “We believe the support and feedback of the newspaper’s editors, writers and readers will significantly enrich the educational and professional networking opportunities the Refit Show delivers.”

The Triton has been endorsing the Refit Show since its first year in 2016.

“Refits are a significant part of any yacht’s life, and the captains and crew who manage and work them learn a tremendous amount about the boats they run and entrust their lives to,” said Lucy Reed, publisher of The Triton. “This is a brilliant idea for a conference, and it’s a perfect fit for us to help bring shipyard and project managers in front of captains and crew so they can learn from each other to have better refit experiences.”

Exhibit sales for the Refit Show will begin in May. Organizers will announce the full seminar series in late summer. Registration for the Refit Show opens in fall. More information is available online at www.refitshow.com.
