This year will be the largest Tampa IBEX Show yet and will be packed with marine professionals from all over the world. With nearly 700 companies spread out over 137,000 sq ft (12,730sq m) we can say this show will offer the most new products and technology since we moved to Tampa. This year’s exhibiting companies are coming from around the world – 90 are from overseas, 15 from Canada, and an amazing 583 from the US. In total we have 23 nationalities represented in the exhibit halls and there are still have a few spaces left.
IBEX has four specialty pavilions: The Composites Pavilion; Electronics Pavilion; Compliance, Standards & Education Pavilion; and for the second year the Marina & Yard Pavilion, which has moved to the 1st Floor Exhibitor Hall and has its own Tech Talk Theater. IBEX’s international growth and recent partnership with the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) has lead to more international pavilions. This year there will be four: The French Pavilion, Korean Pavilion, Australian Pavilion (run by AIMEX), and Italian Pavilion (run by UCINA).
If you are in need of some fresh air and a change of scenery, or if you want to new equipment and products in working capacity, then we also have two outdoor exhibit areas and 39 boats on the IBEX Docks. If you are lucky you may even get to test drive some of the latest products available.
IBEX’s exhibitors and their new products are the reason people come to IBEX – to see what’s new, and to see what’s next. This year we have more exhibitors with more new products from around the globe. It’s going to be a really great show.
We look forward welcoming you in Tampa!
