Cost Comparison: The Value of Attending IMBC 
The association industry standard for the cost of a stand-alone webinar is between $100 - $125 for members. Participating in multiple webinars can get expensive. But at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC), you can participate in ten educational sessions (almost 10 hours of learning), a value of $1,250 for the member rate of only $389 ($499 for non-members). That’s over $1,200 in savings on education alone! And, remember with all of that knowledge, you also get multiple in-person networking opportunities, and access to over 130 of the industry’s suppliers.
