The second annual Yachting Symposium and Job Fair is slated to take place Oct. 9-10 at Greater Ft. Lauderdale / Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale.


The 2014 agenda offers 21 educational sessions, a Networking and Collaboration Terrace, an exhibitors hall, and job fair over two full days.

“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,” said Deena Tanner, manager of the symposium. “The industry will be stronger and this is a platform for that to happen. 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.”
