The International BoatBuilders Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) has been canceled due to threats from Hurricane Ian. The event had been scheduled to take place at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL from September 27-29.

A message on the IBEX Show website reads:

“Based on the weather reports from NOAA and consultation with the City of Tampa, Tampa Convention Center and other stakeholders, the imminent arrival and uncertain nature of the storm forces us to cancel IBEX 2022. From Governor DeSantis’ recent press conference, it is clear that it is neither safe nor advisable to ask our exhibitors, staff and visitors to travel to, or be in, Tampa, FL this week. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we share this difficult decision.”
