The AMI Conference & Expo, formerly IMBC, seeks input from industry for its February event
Warren, RI—The Association of Marina Industries (AMI) Conference & Expo, formerly the International Marina & Boatyard Conference or IMBC, has posted a Call for Proposals on its website and social media accounts. Deadline for proposals is July 1, 2020. The AMI Conference & Expo is scheduled for February 2–4, 2021, in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The AMI team is looking for breakout and workshop topics relevant to the business of marinas and boatyards, from operations to management, for its all-industry audience of Certified Marina Managers (CMMs) and Certified Marina Operators (CMOs), as well as marina designers, engineers, sales professionals, and staff.
“The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, partners, and team are top priority,” Chris Petty of Suntex Marinas, and AMI Chair, says. “With that in mind, we fully expect the AMI Conference & Expo to occur, despite current conditions related to the COVID-19 crisis. We are taking safety precautions for all AMI events, and we continue to position ourselves to pivot as this unpredictable pandemic unfolds.”
The Conference is actively working with health agencies, venues, and suppliers, and following all guidance and advice from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “Our goal is to provide training and education to our industry through all reasonable chains available to us,” Mr. Petty continues.
Current AMI Conference content focus includes Best Practices; Leadership Skills; Marketing & Communications; Human Resources Management and Professional Development; Design & Engineering; Sales, Lead Development, and Closing the Deal; and Marina & Boatyard Operations. Overall, the AMI Conference hosts approximately 25 sessions, including two Keynote Addresses, and hosts over 900 attendees and exhibitors.
