IMX2020 has been postponed.

NEW DATES  |  September 29 – October 1, 2020 |  St. Louis, MO

Registration will re-open soon. 

After monitoring the COVID-19 situation over the last several weeks, The Waterways Journal has decided to postpone the Inland Marine Expo (IMX).  The new dates will be September 29- October 1, 2020 and will still take place at the Dome at America’s Center.  The health of our attendees and exhibitors is our first priority.  We also feel like this will be in the best interest of the success of the 2020 event.

IMX will be rescheduling all events and meetings in conjunction with the event. Attendee and exhibitor registrations and booth space from the original dates will automatically carry over to the new dates.

All hotel reservations made through the IMX hotel room block will be canceled automatically.  No further action is needed. If you reserved your hotel room outside of the room block or from any other source you must cancel your reservation directly. Updated hotel reservation links for the new dates will be available soon.


Celebrating Our History, Supporting Our Future

The Inland Marine Expo is focused on honoring the brown water community’s rich history and providing the modern workforce with the tools, education, and inspiration it needs to propel forward. We’ve opened up The Waterways Journal archives to look back on moments from the past.
