You will find many reasons why you need to be in Louisville in September.


Marine manufacturers and suppliers have new products to show, and they are lining up to exhibit at IBEX 2015. Our exhibit floor is packed this year with nearly 550 exhibitors – of which 115 are NEW companies to IBEX. You won’t want to miss the new product being developed in the industry. Don’t let your competitors get an edge because you weren’t there. Review the 2015 floor plan here.


Our interactive displays were so popular last year that we have expanded some and added others to this year’s show. Get a sneak peek of materials and technology that are impacting other industries and improving marine boatbuilding development. Come visit our Future Materials Display, IBEX 3D Digital Workshop, our expanded Connected Boat Display, Makermobile Trailer, Innovation Way, and IBEX Fleet. 


Every evening at IBEX this year includes social events to make it easier than ever for you to make new connections in the marine industry. Celebrate the industry with peers at the Industry Breakfast, Composites Challenge & Cocktail Competition, Bourbon & Brew Happy Hour, Rock the Yacht Concert and Pre-party, and the Opening Night Party on Fourth St. Live.
