The BWI meeting in Miami takes place on the traditional day and time – that’s Friday morning February 12th. Doors open at 8 a.m. Location is the new show site on Virginia Key in the Waterside Cafe overlooking the in-water docks to the left side of the entrance. Timing provides a buffer for those navigating the new to-show transportation routine.
Writing Awards will be presented along with a panel discussion focused on “What Editors Want and How They Want It from Freelancers and Marketers,” to examine how the digital revolution has changed the editorial marketplace and what editors now expect. A joint effort with colleagues from Marine Marketers of America, BWI and MMA Director Michael Sciulla will moderate a notable panel of editors, freelancers and marketers including: Kevin Falvey, Editor-in-Chief, Boating magazine; Marilyn Mower, Editorial Director-USA at Boat International Media; David Pilvelait, COO of Home Port Marketing; Jim Rhodes, President/CEO of Rhodes Communications; and Bill Sisson, Editor-in-Chief, Soundings Publications.
