Attendees of ProBoat Events 2006 Seattle will be able to assess the effectiveness of the newest available technologies for boat building, design, and repair when they visit the special Indoor Demonstration Area.
ProBoat Events, to be held March 30–31, 2006, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, will feature demos by Diab, WebCore Technologies, and Composites One. The free demonstrations add a new dimension to the ProBoat Events exhibition, allowing many of the Pacific Northwest marine professionals who haven’t yet upgraded their businesses with new technologies to see how advanced tools and materials will enhance the productivity of their staff and the quality of their end-products.
The ProBoat Events 2006 Seattle series of free demonstrations includes presentations of Diab’s trademarked Core Infusion Technology, WebCore Technologies’ WebCore Infusion Process (WIP) using TYCOR, and Light RTM and VIP demos by Composites One. Representatives from these companies will be on hand throughout both days of the show to answer questions about their products.
“The Indoor Demonstrations at ProBoat Events will offer many boat building, design, and repair professionals in the Pacific Northwest a first-time opportunity to see and experience some of the most advanced products and processes now available,” says Carl Cramer, ProBoat Events show director.
Complete descriptions of ProBoat Event’s 2006 series of demonstrations, plus information about the manufacturers producing them, are available online at the show’s Web site: www.ProBoatEvents.com. The Web site also features a daily schedule, complete information about seminars and free workshops presented by exhibitors, general information, travel details, a downloadable brochure, and two ways to register.
