IBEX to open next week as planned

ADVERTISEMENT

The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) will go on as scheduled next week in Tampa after Hurricane Irma brought less-than-expected damage to the area. IBEX will run from Sept. 19-21, with pre-event workshops starting Sept. 18. All seminars and other IBEX activities also remain unchanged.

The decision was announced today by show producers, NMMA and RAI Amsterdam, after conversations with vendors and service providers, including confirmation that there is no damage to the Tampa Convention Center.

“As planned, next week we will bring the industry together in Tampa,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX Show Director. “We are thankful Hurricane Irma left little damage in Tampa, making it accessible for attendees and exhibitors from near and far.”

The trade show will feature 650 exhibiting companies spanning three show floors and outdoor exhibits.
