IBEX rotates to Tampa


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

IBEX, owned and produced by Professional BoatBuilder magazine and the National Marine

Manufacturers Association (NMMA), is a marine technical trade event.
