The Waterways Journal is accepting proposals for education sessions at the 2020 Inland Marine Expo.


The Inland Marine Expo (IMX) is brought to you by The Waterways Journal, the weekly publication focused on inland marine, towboat, barge, river, shipbuilding, jobs, training, and other maritime news.

The river industry is rooted in tradition and propelled by innovation. It is also constantly challenged by inadequate funding, changing regulatory requirements, the needs of shippers and increased competition. In order to thrive and to further its advantages as the most cost-effective, safe and environmentally friendly mode of transportation it is constantly improving and becoming stronger with each day. IMX is gathering place for the brown-water family to share ideas, find the latest and best deals on products and services, and to leave ready to drive this industry forward.

We’re excited to return to the Dome at America’s Center, expanding on the three-day event, which includes educational sessions, networking opportunities, and a tradeshow.

If you have a suggested topic or would like to be considered for a speaking opportunity, please fill out the form below.
Deadline to submit is December 15, 2019.
