WORLD NEWS IMBC – a hit for 2017 USA: The International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the end of January attracted over 800 attendees, 122 exhibitors and 15 sponsors. IMBC hosted multiple preconference events and meetings before officially kicking off with a crowded opening night reception on the exhibit hall floor. Over the course of three days, marina professionals heard talks from professional speakers, association presidents, peers and colleagues. IMBC also hosted a field trip and pub crawl, as well as multiple receptions. And new Certified Marina Managers (CMMs) and Operators (CMOs) were presented with their awards prior to a special gathering to celebrate the programme’s 25th anniversary. “IMBC brings marina professionals together from all over the world,” said Association of Marina Industries (AMI) chairman, Brad Gross CMM. “We’re starting to see people plan meetings outside of our three-day conference because they know they’ll be here. It’s a convenient time for everyone to touch base with other members of our industry. There is a reason we are the largest marina-specific conference in North America.” Plans for the 2018 event (the sixteenth in the series) – at the Ernest N Morial Convention Center in New Orleans – were also announced. “New Orleans is a spectacular backdrop for our conference and will provide inspiration for new content and field trips,” said Kayce Florio, IMBC coordinator. “The city will be kicking off its 300th anniversary celebrations while IMBC is there as well. It’s going to be an exciting time for all.” IMBC 2018, organised by the AMI, will be held 31st January - 2nd February. Racecourse doubles capacity UK: Tingdene Marinas has completed a £1 million investment in new pontoons and shoreside facilities at Racecourse Marina on the River Thames in Windsor. Operations director, Steve Arber, is delighted with the way the project progressed. “This £1 million project has upgraded the facilities and increased our capacity by 50% to 262 berths,” he said. “It’s gone exactly as planned and we experienced excellent service from our contractors – Walcon Marine, Land & Water, Rolec and Riverworks.” “Our marina is now state-of-the-art. Racecourse is completed geared as a one-stop shop for our berth holders, who can start to relax as soon as they arrive on our newly resurfaced entrance road. Most importantly, the customer feedback has been excellent,” he added. KUWAIT: A 310-berth marina has been completed in Al Fintas by Chinese company Livart Marine and Kuwait-based Gulf Dredging & General Contracting.
