MARINA EVENTS The MYP at IBEX: building a global presence When the 28 th International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) opens its doors in Tampa, Florida on 2 nd October this year, it will feature a newly positioned and newly expanded Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP). As Marina World closed for press in late August, the venue had 19 exhibitors – a small rise on the number for 2017’s inaugural MYP – and a marina-specific workshop and seminar programme. A third of the exhibitors come from outside the United States. Now in the first floor exhibit hall, the 2018 IBEX MYP stretches to 2,800ft² (260m²) and has its own Marina & Yard Pavilion Theatre where exhibitors have the opportunity to give 45 minute presentations as part of a Tech Talk workshop programme that is free to attend. HydroHoist Marine Group will also be giving live demonstrations of its boat lift systems throughout the event on the IBEX Docks. Guaranteed to offer industry buzz with nearly 700 exhibitors and over ten times as many visitors, the IBEX show floor, as the largest technical marine trade event of its kind in North America, bustles with news on proven, innovative and future products and technologies, and the IBEX Education Conference offers multiple programmes to further marine-related training. The highly valued IBEX seminars also include a track dedicated to ‘Marina and Boatyard Operations’. This includes a round-table with marina managers and operators, moderated by the president of the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA), and a seminar presented by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI) that showcases an in-depth review of marina and yard management software. For marinas with in-house repair yards, IBEX also offers seminars such as ‘Fundamentals of Gelcoat Repair’ and ‘Repairing and Matching LPU Paint’, as well as a case study on a daunting salvage and repair of a 74ft (22.5m) sports fishing boat. The AMI will also be on-site on Sunday and Monday (30th September and 1st October) to offer two IBEX Super Sessions, “Marina 101: Walk the Dock—First Impressions” (a four-hour industry introduction course) and the popular “Marina and Boatyard Study Tour.” More adventurous marina and yard personnel who visit IBEX can also take part in the first-ever Vacuum Bagging Challenge. Contestants will vie for the top spot after sealing a bag around a balloon as tightly as possible - without popping it! IBEX Seminars cost each, 0 for a three-pack or 0 for a full Conference Pass. This includes seven seminars plus entry to the IBEX Special Session: ‘Designing for Speed’, with a panel that includes Nigel Irens, Pete Melvin, Donald Blount, Michael Peters and Michael Reardon. IBEX expects to welcome an increasing number of international exhibitors and visitors in coming years and includes new country pavilions in 2018 for South Korea, Australia, France and Italy. The collaboration agreement signed between IBEX co-owners – National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and RAI Amsterdam – and the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) places great focus on global reach, encouraging and facilitating increased participation by ICOMIA members as exhibitors, speakers and visitors. The partnership was finalised in Berlin in June at the ICOMIA/IFBSO Congress. Register for IBEX at Marina World is the exclusive media partner for the MYP at IBEX. - September/October 2018 31
