Exhibitors at the International Boating and Water Safety Summit (IBWSS) are an essential part of boating and water safety. Boating and water safety professionals can’t accomplish their work without the proper “tools” exhibitors introduce and provide at IBWSS.
We Continually Improve the International Boating and Water Safety Summit (IBWSS) from Your Feedback and Suggestions!
The IBWSS staff and leadership consider the presence of the exhibitors an essential part of boating and water safety in that we can’t accomplish our work without the proper “tools” you introduce and provide to us at this conference. Your support is invaluable and we sincerely offer our continued support to you before, during and after this year’s IBWSS. We encourage you to try to participate as much as possible in the entire conference. If you would like to consider a sponsorship, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

On water slips available - parking for trailerable displays/boats
On water slips are available for demo of boats or docking training vessels. These slips show discount rates are $2.50 per foot, per night, not to exceed $50.00 per day. Arrangements are through the Dock master not the IBWSS. Call Captain Ron or Dick at the marina, (850) 267-7773 or his cell (850) 428-1016. Let them know this is for IBWSS, the dates, size and number of boats and power requirements in order to determine slip availability. Please contact me for trailerable displays/boats, parking is limited for smaller vessels in a courtyard/drive setting. Exhibitor registration is required.
The two closest ramps on the Destin side of the bay are approximately two and nine miles from the marina. The Legion Park Boat Ramp is two miles west and Charles E. Cessna Ramp is about 9 miles to the east. The Legion Park ramp is very small, and somewhat primitive.
