A Maritime Industry Tradition

Held every year in New Orleans, the show attracts 15,000 members of the commercial marine industry, who come together from around the world to network, learn, spot new industry trends, and uncover innovative products and solutions.

As attendees have been quoted saying, “everyone in the marine industry is here.”

That includes its most innovative suppliers and vendors, who for three days transform the Morial Convention Center exhibition hall into a small city of diverse trade show booths, exhibits, and product demonstrations.

This year dive deeper with the re-envisioned conference program, featuring high level education and networking opportunities custom designed to focus on three sectors of the WorkBoat industry: Shipyard, Offshore, and Inland/Passenger Vessel.

Also this year, attendees are invited to take part in Maintenance & Repair Day, the all new, re-envisioned version of WorkBoat Maintenance & Repair! This extensive one-day program will offer a myriad of key learnings from case study presentations and panel discussions, to roundtable talks and a networking happy hour all within The International WorkBoat Show.

Come prepared to experience many new and exciting additions to this year’s show. From the all new Collaboration Zone, “Back Deck Bar” and “Wheelhouse Tavern”, to the cutting edge “Supplier Solutions” and major upgrades within the WorkBoat Annual Conference, we promise you’ll find everything you need to give your business an edge in 2017 and beyond.

Don’t forget about after hours, that’s when attendees take to the famous restaurants, tap houses and music venues of New Orleans to experience the soulful, warm, and welcoming brand of Southern charm unique to the Crescent City.

It’s your annual chance to network, shop, connect, and get in the know among the best in the business. It’s a maritime industry tradition. And through good times and bad, this is the marine industry’s show.
