IBEX – where better

IBEX – where better boats begin Celebrating 30 years North America’s leading technical boat-building showcase, the 30th Annual IBEX Show comes to the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida on 28th-30th September, 2021. Industry demand for an in-person IBEX has been strong. In early August, the 2021 show already had 600 exhibitors signed up, including 81 that are brand new to IBEX. In addition to displaying new products, systems and technology, IBEX is where the marine industry connects with current and future partners and suppliers. Not being able to connect in person last year means the 2021 IBEX is more important than ever for attendees and exhibitors alike. IBEX also offers a packed schedule of events both leading up to and throughout the show. These networking events offer a unique opportunity to connect with vendors and colleagues, while making new connections and business contacts. Some highlights will include the Industry Breakfast with Keynote and Innovation Awards Presentation, the popular IBEX Opening Night Party, and the return of Pitch the Press, an exciting live event featuring product pitches from exhibiting companies selected by industry journalists.
