Refit Show

Thank You, Captains

We've been busy talking with captains about what they want to see at the next Refit Show, January 26-27, 2017, at the Broward County Convention Center in Ft. Lauderdale. Through a survey from our friends at The Triton and our own communications with captains throughout the United States, we've compiled a great list of technical seminar topics.

In particular, captains would like to hear directly from shipyard owners and project managers about their thoughts on best practices, estimating and billing processes, and project management. We're putting together some great panel discussions to address these issues at the Refit Show. Our full seminar series will be announced soon — sign up to receive updates.

Thank You, Shipyards

Front Street Shipyard Newport Shipyard

We'd like to welcome Front Street Shipyard and Newport Shipyard as our newest sponsors of the 2017 Refit Show.

Other shipyard owners and managers have approached us about developing opportunities for greater visibility at the Refit Show. We've put together some sponsorship packages exclusively for shipyards seeking to network with captains. If you represent a shipyard and would like to receive more information about these limited opportunities, please let us know.

Nominate Your Team for an Award

Refit Excellence

Refit Show attendees and exhibitors alike are invited to nominate a refit for the Refit Excellence Awards! Nominations are FREE, and anyone who was part of a refit process is invited to nominate a yacht. The awards are judged by an independent panel based on not only the finished yacht, but on the teamwork, problem-solving and efficacy of everyone involved in the refit, including the boatyard, captain, owner, designer, surveyor, and management. If you contributed to a refit or know of an exceptional project that deserves recognition, please nominate it (free!) through our website.

Reserve Your Hotel Accommodations

Refit Show exhibitors and attendees are encouraged to reserve hotel rooms well in advance of the event. This year's room block for the Refit Show is located at the Embassy Suites by Hilton near the convention center.
