Group Delegations Welcome

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to organize a trade mission from your country for groups of boat builders and marine manufacturers who are interested in attending The International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition & Conference.

Interested parties, specifically those dedicated to boat building, design, and repair, will learn about competitive new technologies—tools, methods, and materials—that are changing how boats are being built. IBEX is the most significant boat building trade event for new-technology, education, industry-wide communication, and sourcing opportunities in the U.S.

Trade Mission Package and Promotional Opportunities

For groups of more than 10 boat builders, or others allied to the marine industry, that you bring to IBEX, we can make the following benefits available:

  • Consultation with industry experts on new markets, compliance and regulations, import/export information.
  • For a large trade delegation, we will honor your country with press coverage before and during the show.
  • Visa and travel assistance, including a discount group hotel rate.
