2021 AMI Conference & Expo Review
This year was most definitely a year of adapting and open-mindedness. The association, like many others, moved its annual conference to a virtual platform and was forced to rethink the way we have historically delivered our annual event and everything that supports it, including our final program. The final program is distributed at our in-person event and includes the conference schedule, session descriptions, sponsor advertisements and an overall feel of the event to be delivered. This year we prepared a review of the 2021 AMI Virtual Conference & Expo to look back on the event highlights. This piece includes information on the conference workshops, keynotes, sessions, networking events and a nod to the exhibitors and sponsors who took a chance and supported us in this new model. For those who attended, this will be a look back and for those who were unable to attend, an opportunity to get caught up on the valuable content the association delivered and to see what you missed.
For 19 years, the AMI annual conference has brought a wealth of high-quality educational sessions; an exhibition floor full of products and services specifically for marinas; and an abundance of networking opportunities to marina managers, owners, and staff from across the country and even internationally. We did the same this year, it just looked and felt quite different.
