Starting tomorrow (Wednesday December 2nd) through the end of this week, gCaptain.com will be attending the International Workboat Show in New Orleans, LA. We, along with good folks at The Maritime Executive, would like to invite you to come visit us at The Maritime Executive booth #433 if you will be attending. While we have connected with many of you over the phone and in the forums, we are always looking to take advantage of opportunities to meet face to face and we figure this event is as good of time as any for many of you.
According to latest figures, this years show, held at the Morial Convention Center, will welcome over 12,000 visitors, 950 exhibitors in 1,900 booths. Needless to say, we all have our work cut out for us this week!
For those of you that don’t know, the International WorkBoat Show is the largest commercial marine tradeshow in North America serving people and businesses working on the coastal, inland and offshore waters. Over 1,000 companies will display products and services for commercial vessels and the companies that build, service and operate them.
If you are interested in attending, it’s not too late! Check out the Workboat Show website – www.workboatshow.com – for information on visitor registration.
Last year was a great show and a lot of fun and we’re sure this year will be the same so stop by and visit us at booth #433 or out on Bourbon Street where the party will continue well into the night!
