For three days this fall, boatbuilders and marine industry professionals from around the world will have access to an outstanding seminar series offering everything from fundamental skills to cutting-edge advanced training at The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), taking place September 15-September 17, 2015 at the Kentucky Exposition Center, Louisville, KY. There will be 55 seminars to choose from in eight tracks: Composite Methods & Materials, Design & Engineering, Survey & Repair, Marine Electrical Systems, Manufacturing Management & Policy, Onboard Systems, ProBoat Editors’ Picks, and Boatyard & Marina Operations.
“IBEX’s annual challenge is to design a program of seminars that are useful to all,” said Professional BoatBuilder editor Aaron Porter. “We do that best with direct input from our attendees, telling us what topics they want to see included, problems they need solved, new materials and regulations they would like explained, and even presenters they want to hear regardless of the specific topic. With this invaluable input we are able to develop useful technical seminars that meet the evolving needs of the industry.”
“We thank the editors of Professional BoatBuilder magazine and the event’s education partners – ABYC, ABBRA, NMEA, and NMMA for developing a robust technical and pertinent educational seminar series for the IBEX attendees,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director. “In addition to our seminar series, IBEX will offer live, hands-on training in our Super Sessions, and Exhibitor Workshops.”
