The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) will rotate its event between Louisville, Ky., and Tampa, Fla. Both cities are easily accessed travel hubs and the rotation between a southern location and a central location allows more professionals to attend, IBEX said in a statement. A rotating schedule also creates more location-specific social and networking opportunities, which show organizers anticipate will increase attendance.
The show, typically held between mid-September and early October, will be held in Louisville Sept 17-19 this year and at the Tampa Convention Center from Sept. 30-Oct. 4 in 2014. For more information, visit www.ibexshow.com.
IBEX, owned and produced by Professional BoatBuilder magazine and the National Marine
Manufacturers Association (NMMA), is a marine technical trade event.
