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.
Symposium sessions include Crew and Professional Wages/Benefits, Getting Hauled – Where & How, Safe Manning and Flag State Updates, All Aboard Florida and its Impact on the Local Yachting Industry, Hiring Practices On and Off Vessels, Why the Interior Department Of the Yacht Matters Most, and Industry Standards and Why We Need Them
“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.”
