MYP AT IBEX The expansive International BoatBuilders Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) makes the most of both indoor and outdoor space at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. The Marina & Yard Pavilion is located inside the building on the first floor. Forward to the Future! This year’s expanded Marina & Yard Pavilion (MYP) at IBEX (1 st -3 rd October) in Tampa, Florida adopts a futuristic theme with rolling big screen presentations on innovations that are helping the industry to meet change and tackle issues that affect us today and tomorrow. The ‘Marinas of the Future’ screen programme, compiled by the IBEX team with input from Exclusive Media Partner, Marina World, will be an ideal way to absorb an instant ‘snapshot’ of who’s doing what and where. “IBEX is where the marine industry comes each year to see what’s new and what’s next, and the IBEX Marina & Yard Pavilion is no exception. Many of the IBEX MYP exhibitors are visionary companies offering exceptional new products and technologies that are game changing,” says IBEX show director Anne Dunbar. “The goal of the ‘Marinas of the Future’ is to offer a visual and experiential presentation to our visiting marina and yard owners and operators and inspire positive change through innovation. It’s going to be a presentation worth watching, and I am really excited about it.” The MYP for 2019 hosts 20 exhibitors and has been expanded from 2,500ft² (232m²) to 2,900ft² (269m²). This is a 15% increase on 2018 but, more impressively, an 80% expansion since the pavilion was first established in 2017. Furthermore, IBEX organisers – the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) of the USA and rai Amsterdam of the Netherlands – have verified a 60% growth in marina and boatyard attendees over the last three years. To complement the exhibition space, the IBEX Seminar Series offers a Marina & Boatyard Operations track dedicated to professionals in the industry. Seminars will be hosted by IBEX education partners and sponsors including the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA), the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), the American Boat Builders & Repairers’ Association (ABBRA) and Professional Boatbuilder magazine. ICOMIA will be presenting a session on the global effects of the sharing economy on marinas and how operators should be prepared as this trend continues to evolve. ABBRA will be on-site to host a roundtable on the business of running a marina or yard, seminars on risk management and the #metoo movement, and a presentation on the timely yet important topic of understanding immigration laws when building a workforce. AMI will provide insight into mitigating electric shock drowning, and Steve D’Antonio, technical editor of Professional Boatbuilder, will showcase his experiences with blocking and hauling boats. Other topics include Understanding Your Marina or Boatyard Insurance Policy, which dovetails well with an AMI seminar: Lessons Learned from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, presented by two marina managers who lived through the storms. Gary Loftis of Maffett Loftis Engineering will also take to the stage to help attendees understand marina electrical systems and the changes to the US National Electrical Code. For further educational and training opportunities, IBEX organises preconference Super Sessions on 29 th and 30 th September. Among the 12 training opportunities available, AMI offers its hugely popular Marina 101 and its Marina & Boatyard Study Tour. Designed for tandem participation, although the sessions can be attended as stand-alone events, they offer basic overviews of marina operations as well as a hands-on view of half a dozen marinas in the Tampa area. One of the most valuable aspects of IBEX is its face-to-face networking opportunities. Highlights include the Opening Night Party, which will be held in the newly renovated outdoor Sail Pavilion located in front of the Tampa Convention Center; the Exhibit Hall Happy Hour; the Annual Industry Breakfast with its keynote address and award presentations; and networking events from ‘Emerging Marine Leaders’ (find out more at And networking opportunities expand year on year at an international level. IBEX 2019 will see larger national pavilions for Australia, France, Italy, Slovenia and South Korea. As Marina World went to press, 70 international companies from 23 different countries including the UK, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Slovenia, Belgium, China, Taiwan and the Netherlands were scheduled to exhibit at the show.
