IMBC, taking place January 31 - February, 2, 2018, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA, is produced by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI).

"IMBC is always the perfect place for our industry to come together to learn about new trends, create important professional relationships and challenge each other on the way we think about our businesses," says AMI Chair Brad Gross, Certified Marina Manager (CMM). "We are very excited to be in New Orleans for the first time in IMBC's 16-year history. New Orleans is rich with culture and it provides new opportunities and inspiration for content, locations for our popular marina field trip and a new market for our exhibitors to reach through our show."

Full conference passes start at $389 and include unlimited access to all educational seminars, round tables, workshops, food and beverages; entry into the exhibit hall; and admittance to all networking events. This year's events include a New Orleans inspired social night (full-conference registration, only), an AMI member meeting followed by a first-time attendee reception, and IMBC's opening night Exhibit Hall Party on January 31.

As well as full conference passes, IMBC offers one-day passes and exhibit hall passes. As always, AMI members receive a discount on all passes. In addition to the perks of full conference and one-day passes, the marina and boatyard field trip may be added for $60 for AMI members and $90 for non-members. Exhibit hall-only and guest passes are also available for purchase.

Pre-registration rates will be available until Friday, January 26, 2018. Onsite registration will begin at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. For more information or to register, visit www.marinaassociation.org/imbc.

DAVIS DEBUTS CARBON FIBER WIND VANES

Davis Carbon Fiber Wind Vanes

 

 

Whether learning to sail in an Optimist, perfecting technique in a Laser or taking line honors in the latest sportboat, the ability to visualize apparent wind angle and read the shifts is critical to sailing well. Traditional wind indicators tend to be fragile and easily bent or broken. Davis Instruments introduces Blacksmith Wind Vanes, made from super lightweight 3D carbon fiber and duraluminum to withstand the rigors of hard racing. For Opti sailors, an equally durable, carbon-free class legal version is offered. READ MORE
