About the Conference



Work Smarter. Don’t recreate the hull.

At the WorkBoat Annual Conference, attendees and exhibitors come together for three days of commercial marine-specific peer-to-peer education, professional development, and engaged problem solving.

Conference sessions and workshops are produced by the same team that brings you WorkBoat Magazine and You’ll hear and discuss real case studies, best practices, and strategies from and with people who live, breathe, and work every day in the commercial marine industry. People you may already work with. People who truly understand your challenges, and who might just have an answer you’ve been seeking. Or perhaps you have theirs.

Topics include:
• Technical training
• Regulatory updates
• Business practices
• Emerging issues

The 2017 Program details will be available in the late Spring of 2017! 

The conference runs Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday alongside the International WorkBoat Show, with breaks in between sessions to explore the exhibit hall, catch up with colleagues, check your email, or grab a quick bite to eat.
