The Inland Marine Expo (IMX) is the annual trade show for the inland and intracoastal marine transportation industry. At the show, you will find equipment and services that are critical in the movement of goods along these waterways. Target attendees include ports and terminals, barge and towing companies, fleeting and harbor services companies, dredging companies and marine contractors, inland shipyards and repair facilities, and engineers, divers, surveyors and other support industries as well as government agencies.
Find the latest in equipment and services that will help your business along the inland and intracoastal waterways succeed! You will have direct access to the companies who sell to operators in this critical region without having to spend time sorting through offshore-only services.
