WorkBoat Show Chugs into  NOLA

WorkBoat Show Chugs into NOLA

Expect this year’s annual show and conference to highlight the best of the marine industry.

One of the final shows of 2014, The International WorkBoat Show and Annual Conference, takes place December 3rd through 5th at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. This year’s show is expected to have more than 1,000 marine product and service suppliers in attendance. At the show, attendees have the opportunity to meet and troubleshoot with industry experts, negotiate with product suppliers, and discuss the latest marine technological advances.

The annual conference spans across all three days. Conference presentations include topics on vessel construction and repair; technical, business management, and legal regulations; and safety, security, and training.  Each day has multiple sessions coinciding with one another, allowing attendees to choose topics that best suit their particular needs.

Three keynote speakers will present at the conference: Frank Foti, President and CEO of Vigor Industrial; Paul N. Jaenichen, Sr. Maritime Administrator, U.S. Department of Transportation, Maritime Administration; and Capt. Richard Phillips. The keynote presentations will begin with Captain Phillips, the notable seaman who was famously taken hostage in 2009 after Somali pirates hijacked his ship.

At the end of the second day, also referred to as “Shipyard Day,” there will be a special awards ceremony hosted by the editors of WorkBoat magazine. Every year, the editors review boats showcased by the magazine throughout the year and then choose 10 significant boats for special recognition. The boats are chosen for speed, design, technology, and more. This is the first year the boats will be announced in advance, and one of the boats will ultimately be selected as the 2014 Boat of the Year.
