IBEX opens internationally

2016 edition of the American IBEX show, dedicated to yachting professionals

IBEX, the American boat trade show, is launching offers to attract more international exhibitors and visitors. This approach is in line with the policy announced at the time of the takeover by the European METS exhibition.

Special offers for foreign visitors

For its 2017 edition, which will take place in Tampa, Florida, from 19th to 21st September 2017, IBEX, the American trade show for yachting professionals, wants to attract more exhibitors and visitors from countries outside North America. To this end, the organisers, now the same as those of METS Amsterdam since the takeover in summer 2016, are issuing a VIP invitation for foreigners. Provided you visit IBEX for the first time, come from a country other than the United States and are an established boating professional (shipyard, distributor, dealer, equipment manufacturer, marina...), the visitor can benefit from the B2B VIP program which in addition to the invitation, offers practical services and participation in a cocktail to expand its network.

Anne Dunbar, Director of IBEX, is delighted with the new offer. "IBEX has always enjoyed strong international follow-up and our new partnership with METS will only enhance our overall visibility. To better serve this growing market, we are pleased to offer this initiative to assist new professionals who come from abroad to sell and buy new products and develop their networks with their industry peers."

New international exhibitors

Around 70 international exhibitors are expected to attend IBEX 2017. Half of them will be present for the first time in Tampa, from many European and Asian countries.
