IBEX - the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference – is to be a virtual only event.
The show, scheduled for September 29 – October 1 2020 will be online only after a decision was made by organisers to pivot the in-person show to a virtual only event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The marine industry will still be able to connect virtually with all the experts and product manufacturers at the new IBEX online event on the same dates.
“The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, and partners is our primary concern,” said Anne Dunbar, IBEX show director. “While gathering in-person is not the right decision this year, we will instead connect virtually.”
She added: “IBEX is known for forward-thinking education and allowing buyers and manufacturers to meet and do business. We are working to bring all that you expect from IBEX to an online format.”
The details for IBEX Online: A Virtual Experience are currently being developed. Registration for the new virtual IBEX experience will be announced in August.
