The International WorkBoat Show

13,000 To Attend 16th Annual International WorkBoat Show; November 3-5, New Orleans Thirteen thousand workboat professionals are expected at this year's International WorkBoat Show. According to Steve McDonough, WorkBoat '94's sales manager, "Without a doubt, New Orleans is the place to be in November for anyone involved in the commercial marine industry. Whether looking to build, buy, service or supply, visitors to WorkBoat '94 will find what they need. Everything pertaining to the workboat industry will be on display, from electronics and engines to winches and propellers." Mr. McDonough contends that the broad diversity of commercial marine market segments represented by the show's visitors and exhibitors is a key factor in the show's growth.

Workboat and marine trade prof e s s i o n a l s will gather for the WorkBoat Show at the Ernest N.

Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La. Since its inception in 1978, the show has attracted more than 150,000 commercial marine professionals looking to buy, sell, sample and compare the latest in equipment and services, keep up with industry trends, make new contacts and re-establish old ones. The 1994 edition of The International WorkBoat Show promises to live up to its reputation as "North America's Premier Workboat Trade Show." More than 400 companies from across the U.S. and around the world will showcase their wares in more than 850 booths at the show. Professionals involved in the construction, maintenance, and operation of t u g b o a t s , barges, f e r r i e s and workboats, and in related industries and services, will find the show an invaluable resource.

This year's seminar program includes sessions on the latest developments in electronic navigation (Electronic Navigation: Inside ECDIS and ECS), the ramifications of Title XI on loan guarantees for new vessel construction (The New Title XI: Blessing or Curse?), and the pros and cons of vessel conversion (Conversions: Better Than Building?).
