IBEX 2010 will be held on 29-30 September, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

IBEX is owned and produced by Professional BoatBuilder magazine and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), which represents the recreational boating industry in North America.

"Over the years, our attendees and exhibitors have expressed increasing concerns about the high costs in south Florida," explains Carl Cramer, IBEX show co-director and publisher of Professional BoatBuilder. "Our primary duty as show producers is to keep our constituents happy, and to produce a high-quality trade show. We are confident our location in Louisville will prove to be a successful new beginning."

“IBEX has had a tremendous run in Miami Beach, however, given recent changes in today’s economy and the boating industry, we felt show exhibitors and attendees would benefit from the move to a more central location that will help lower their costs to participate,” says Thom Dammrich, NMMA president. “While several cities and venues were considered, Louisville and the Kentucky Exposition Center were identified as the best fit for IBEX.”
