“We are very excited to be a part of this amazing new format for B2B events in the maritime industry,” says Rob Howard, Senior VP, New Wave Media. “Work Boats Exchange is about more than just sales; three focused days of networking and meetings will positively affect the entire industry and we’re looking forward to spending time with so many highly respected fleet owners and suppliers.”
 

Work Boats Exchange (www.workboatexchange.com) gives fleet owners and commercial marine suppliers the most direct, personal and cost-effective way to connect, network and develop long-lasting business relationships.  The event takes place in Fort Lauderdale at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale on April 9-12, 2012.   For more information or to qualify please contact Karen Kelly at 978-263-1334 or kkelly@exchangeevents.com.
