After a year hiatus The International WorkBoat Show will return to New Orleans, LA in 2006. We feel strongly in our support of the city during it’s rebuilding efforts and hope that you will join us in celebrating the rebuilding and rebirth of a great community.
“It’s important to continue the WorkBoat Show’s long association with New Orleans for several reasons. The city and surrounding region remains a hotbed of workboat activity. It’s where the offshore workboat industry got its start over 50 years ago when New Orleans-based Tidewater launched the first energy service vessel. It is also where WorkBoat Magazine was founded over 60 years ago and has been the only home of the International WorkBoat Show. We want to send a message that the region is still important to the industry and help support the region’s post-Katrina rebuilding effort by bringing the industry’s largest show back to New Orleans in 2006.”
