IBEX Education Conference announces the 2022 call for proposals

The International Boat Builders’ Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) has announced the opening of the IBEX Educational Conference Call for Proposals (CFP). The IBEX Education Conference will offer training, workshops and technical seminars to attendees of the 31st IBEX, which will be held September 27-29, 2022 at the Tampa Convention Center. North America’s largest trade event for boating industry professionals, IBEX is owned and produced by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) and RAI Amsterdam.

“IBEX has earned a reputation for providing world-class technical education,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX Show Director. “The education conference is an important part of the overall performance experience. Many of the best professionals in the industry rely on the vital information they learn at IBEX to stay informed about cutting-edge technologies, methods and materials, and how to take advantage of them.

CFP 2022 seeks educational conference topic submissions designed to educate industry professionals on technical topics. All topic submissions are welcome, along with speaker recommendations for the proposed seminar, although speakers are not required. Promotion of any product or service is prohibited in the seminar series. Industry feedback is important in identifying emerging trends, concerns, and the most relevant hands-on seminars for the coming year. The series of seminars takes place as follows:

Construction methods and materials
Design and engineering
Management policy
Marina and shipyard operations
Marine electrical systems
Onboard marine systems
Investigation and repair
Emerging trends

Additionally, CFP 2022 is accepting topic submissions for the pre-conference sessions, which take place the day before the show opens, and the technical discussions, presented by exhibitors live at the show during IBEX.

“The IBEX Education Conference brings together all the different components and segments of the industry, creating true synergy,” said Patty Lawrence, IBEX Director of Education. “We turn to experts, innovators and devotees for session proposals, because they are the ones who shape the boats of tomorrow. The industry’s contribution is what makes the IBEX Education conference shine. Our speakers view the shipbuilding and marine industry from a variety of lenses that ensure program depth and a well-balanced perspective.
