The Docks Expo accepted nominations for men and women under the age of 40, who have made significant contributions to the marina and boatyard industry and collectively promise to play a big role in shaping its future.
We looked for nominees that represent the broad range of employment opportunities in the industry. Awards were presented to young marina and boatyard owners, managers and staff; marina consultants, engineers or other professional service providers; manufacturers and suppliers of marina and boatyard products, or other professions that rely on the marina and boatyard industry for their businesses.
Award winners were honored at The Docks Expo in Nashville, TN on December 4, 2019.
