ICMS partners with The Yacht Harbour Association to support B2B networking at SIBS

August 1, 2023

We’ve partnered with The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) to create a dedicated space for marine businesses to meet and network at the Southampton International Boat Show, 15-24 September 2023.

“Having taken space on The Yacht Harbour Association’s ‘Find a Marina’ stand with other marina related companies for the last few years, we’ve seen the value of bringing together a group of like-minded marine businesses,” says Jon Challis, our Sales Manager. 

“This year, we wanted to take it a step further and create a ‘hub’ on the stand where other marine industry professionals are welcome too, expanding the opportunity for B2B networking to a wider industry audience.”

By sponsoring the central refreshment area and breakout zone on TYHA’s Find a Marina stand, we’ve made this dedicated networking space possible and invite members of the trade to make use of the facility on stand J150 during the 10-day boat show.

Jon continues: “Conversations in a relaxed environment over a coffee allow ideas to be thrown around, and it’s these chance conversations or introductions which can provide valuable insight and/or identify previously unrecognised synergies and expertise, often resulting in mutually beneficial business opportunities.”

At the Southampton International Boat Show this year, we’re calling upon marina operators and harbour masters looking to upgrade their berthing facilities to take a fresh look at its extensive range of pontoons and floating breakwaters – all designed to offer safe, stable and non-slip water access to craft of all shapes and sizes, from kayaks to superyachts.
