Ken Cook Co. will be hosting an informal gathering to discuss boating safety and compliance during the IBEX Show in Kentucky.

Thousands of marine professionals will be attending this exciting trade-only event, and Ken Cook Co. employees will be among them. John Jost, Director of Software Solutions at Ken Cook Co., and Nic Stoffel, Project Manager at Ken Cook Co., will host a special “Compliance and Networking” informal gathering in the exhibition hall at booth 2248 to address the topic of compliance and documentation within the boating industry.

“At IBEX, we proudly serve both fellow exhibitors needing technical documentation and boatbuilder attendees needing owner manuals. It is still critical in today’s world to provide printed user information with the product, especially from a liability point of view,” Jost noted.

In addition to hosting the meeting, Jost and Stoffel will also be engaged in learning and networking activities throughout the three-day conference.

IBEX is one of the two semi-annual venues used by the Boating Industry Risk Management Council (BIRMC), a group of marine experts dedicated to promoting boating safety by way of identifying potential risks that may present a hazard to recreational boaters. As a long-time member of BIRMC, Jost will be presenting the results of the 2015 season boating safety efforts via social media.

“We are glad to be part of such an important marine industry event. It is great to see our clients and friends in person,” said Stoffel.

This conference is designed for boatbuilders, surveyors and boating designers. Topics include fiberglass boat repair, marine industry workforce needs, marine industry innovations, teak technology, adhesives, engineering, ultra-performance foam, engine room ventilation, thermal imaging for wood repair, aquatic invasive species, and much more. Exhibitors at IBEX focus on all things related to building a boat – from materials, equipment, standards and documentation, to accessories and software.

National Baseball Hall of Fame Player Johnny Bench will deliver a motivational keynote at breakfast. The conference also includes a spirited “Rock the Yacht” concert.
