It was rough waters for the team at the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) leading up to its show this past September 19–21, in Tampa, Florida. Hurricane Harvey had just finished pounding the marine industry in southern Texas.

Aha to the AHI

Great pre-planning work by the IBEX team for its 2015 show!

One of the top reasons for attending the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) is for marine professionals to be able to meet up and network with one another. It’s their one trade event of the year focused solely on the industry side of recreational marine products, where their attentions are not split among consumers also browsing the show.

The show’s organizers didn’t completely overhaul IBEX. They just mixed in a few subtle changes to refresh the show’s content, which quickly caught the interest of the industry professionals IBEX wanted to participate.
