Hurricane Preparedness and Recovery Conference
Date(s) - Oct 29, 2018
Marriott Miami Biscayne Bay
The International Marina Institute (IMI), a subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), is offering a one-day Hurricane Preparedness and Recovery Conference, “Weathering the Storm”.
After the impact of last year’s hurricane season, IMI saw an opportunity to educate industry professionals in the latest hurricane preparedness and recovery tactics. “Weathering the Storm” is a practical conference designed to prepare marinas for the forces of a hurricane or severe storm and to supply critical information on the success of the marina’s recovery. IMI has gathered 10 experts in the industry to share their knowledge and experience for this one-day conference.
The day after the conference, IMI will take marina professionals on a one-day Marina and Boatyard Study Tour in and around the Miami area. Listen as marina managers from each facility share their experiences in dealing with Hurricane Irma — what worked, what didn’t, and what they would do differently next time.
Leading up to the events, IMI is hosting a three-month webinar series on hurricane-related topics, including hurricane forecasting, what contributed to the success of the Southeast Florida marinas during Hurricane Irma, and essentials to include in a hurricane recovery plan. These webinars will be held the first Wednesday of each month, beginning Aug. 1 at noon EST. These webinars are free to conference attendees.
The “Weathering the Storm” Conference fee includes a one-night hotel stay, an opening reception the evening before the conference, and breakfast and lunch the day of the conference. The AMI member rate is $575 and the non-member rate is $675.
The Marina & Boatyard Study Tour fee includes a one-night hotel stay, transportation for the day-long tour, and breakfast and lunch the day of the tour. The AMI member rate is $799 and the non-member rate is $899.
Register for both events and receive a $100 discount — $1,274 for members; 1,474 for non-members.
