Registration is now open for the annual Marine Fabricators Conference being held Jan. 7-9, 2021, in New Orleans, La., just a bead’s throw away from the French Quarter. The Sheraton New Orleans on Canal Street is the host hotel and location for almost all conference activities, which include three full days of education and networking designed to help marine fabricators cultivate industry connections, improve their efficiency and increase revenue. Educational sessions include an in-depth comparison of analog vs digital patterning, equipment demos, a look at how members have responded to emergencies including Covid-19, as well as a return of the popular Boat Makeover session from 2020.
Attendees have numerous opportunities to connect with fabricators and suppliers. Networking opportunities range from conducting business on the show floor to making new friends at the opening night hillbilly/moonshiner-themed Costume Party and at the formal Closing Dinner and Awards event. Conference organizers are taking participant health and safety seriously and will ensure strict protocols including frequent cleaning regimens, extra space for social distancing and other conference and meeting best practices as they continue to evolve leading up to the conference.
The emphasis of the 2021 MFA Conference is on expanding your knowledge and professional network while having fun. To register and see the full conference schedule, visit www.ifai.com/marineconference.
