America’s Boating Channel to Celebrate First Anniversary at 2024 IBWSS with Safe Boating Video Fiesta

The annual International Boating and Water Safety Summit (IBWSS) will be held April 8-11, 2024, at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Albuquerque, New Mexico, bringing together leaders in recreational boating safety from around the world to focus on thought leadership, collaboration, and industry excellence.

America’s Boating Channel will celebrate the first anniversary of its smart TV streaming services by recognizing excellence in safe boating and boater education videos during the Safe Boating Video Fiesta – a gala ceremony and luncheon being held at the 2024 IBWSS.

“We are excited to shine the spotlight on the high-quality boating education and entertainment content offered by America’s Boating Channel,” said Peg Phillips, executive director of the National Safe Boating Council, the host organization for IBWSS. “America’s Boating Channel offers excellent video content produced by leading organizations within the boating industry.”

Federal and state agencies, marine law enforcement, parks services personnel, instructors, manufacturers, nonprofit representatives, and others committed to keeping recreational boating and water enthusiasts safe on the water are encouraged to attend IBWSS. Individual registration includes all-access to all sessions, networking opportunities, hands-on workshops, and the America’s Boating Channel Safe Boating Video Fiesta.
