7th annual training to be held October 29–30, 2013
Warren, RI—The International Marina Institute (IMI), the training subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), has scheduled its 7th Annual Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour for October 29–30, 2013. The two-day tour will depart daily from the B Ocean Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The IMI Marina and Boatyard Study Tour is a mobile training course that takes participants on exclusive tours of marinas and boatyards to provide an in-depth look at the operations of different types of facilities in South Florida. At the end of each day, attendees participate in a facilitated roundtable discussion and SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis of each marina before heading to a networking dinner.
“The experience of seeing multiple facilities in person and evaluating each is invaluable to our members and marina industry professionals,” Kayce Florio, IMI’s Training Coordinator, says. “Participants learn how to examine their own operations and facilities, which ultimately improves their businesses.”
The 2013 Study Tour will be based at the B Ocean Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The tour will depart from the B Ocean each day and the hotel will serve as the location of the classroom portion of the course.
