IBWSS will bring together boating and water safety industry professionals from around the world to network, learn, and collaborate from Sunday April 16 through Wednesday April 19 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Little Rock, AR.

"Our new app and channel will showcase video content from fellow boating safety advocacy organizations that share U.S. Coast Guard financial support, including the Water Sports Foundation (WSF), the American Canoe Association (ACA), National Safe Boating Council (NSBC), the Corps Foundation (CF), National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), and Sea Tow Foundation (STF)," noted Strachan. "American Whitewater (AW), Safe Kids Worldwide (SKW), and Water Solutions Group (WSG) will be added soon."

"We are also expanding the scope and appeal of our smart TV offerings with Boat Fails, Boating News, Boat Races, Boating TV Programs, Movies for Boaters, Cooking on Board, Boating Cartoons, Military films from the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy, and coverage of the U.S. Sailing Team," she added.

"This year's IBWSS program will make a splash with dynamic speakers, exclusive networking opportunities, and a unique full-day workshop offering on-the-water training experiences," said Phillips.

"We are partnered with Water Sports Industry Association (WSIA) in bringing the latest in towed sport technology to our attendees. Lee Gatts from WSIA has stated that this may be the most variety of vessels and equipment that he's seen at a conference. Attendees will be transported to the Rock City Yacht Club on the Arkansas River where they'll be able to observe from the dock, board a vessel and watch wake surfing, or even jump on an e-foil or wakeboard and try them out. Count me in!" she concluded.
