A new event, Boatbuilding Live!, supported by the American Professional Boatbuilder Magazine and the British Marine Federation, has been announced.
The series of specialist seminars will take place on 22-23 April 2015 at Southampton Solent University Conference Centre, Sir James Matthews Building, 157-187 Above Bar Street, Southampton, Hampshire SO14 7NN.
Boatbuilding Live! is a two day trade event for professional boat designers, builders, repairers, surveyors, and systems technicians. It is fully immersed in the boatbuilding industry, with 18 seminars, a keynote presentation and networking opportunities. Each technical seminar is led by one or more seasoned industry veterans who will share their ideas about best practices, or emerging technologies in the boatbuilding industry.
The organisers of Boatbuilding Live! chose to hold the premiere event in Southampton, UK, which is central to many exceptionally talented people in the global marine industry.
Boatbuild Live! is structured into four themes, comprising 18 lectures, of which people may choose to attend 6, plus the key note address.
The themes are:
Composites Methods & Materials
Composites are among the most-used materials in boatbuilding today: How can we use them better and more efficiently?
Design & Engineering
What are the new ideas emerging in the field of yacht design? How can we engineer the best boats possible?
Systems are getting more and more complicated every day in the marine industry. What do we need to know now about today’s most common challenges with modern systems?
Repair & Survey
For many yards, repair and survey is a bigger business than new construction. How can we be more efficient and effective with the repair and survey processes?
