TAMPA, FL, — Registration is now open for the 29th International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX), being held October 1-3 at the Tampa Convention Center. North America’s largest trade event for recreational marine industry professionals, IBEX is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and RAI Amsterdam.
“The entire IBEX team has been working tirelessly to prepare for the opening of registration and we are thrilled to now share the many new and exciting experiences being offered this year for all visitors,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX Show Director. “We have so much planned for this year’s show you’ll find a packed education conference, many new special events, and nightly networking events. Throughout the summer, we will be sending out information to help you plan your IBEX experience and I encourage you to register early so you don’t miss out on any IBEX developments.”
