International WorkBoat Show 2011

If it happened at IWBS 2011, you'll find it here

11.30.11.WorkBoat.crowdshotThe editors of WorkBoat magazine and diligently covered the biggest event in the workboat industry, getting you all the news from the floor, the educational seminars, and the meetings and parties happening all throughout New Orleans. This is where you'll find the product releases, business news, video interviews with industry members from the show floor, and everything you could ever hope to know about what went down at WorkBoat 2011. Even if you were walking the show floor yourself, you'll probably find something here you didn't know about that was going on in the far corner of the floor you couldn't quite make it to.

Continue to heck back often, though, because even though the show floor is now dark, we've still got a ton of material we'll be putting up, at least through the New Year. And, hey, is there anything you think we missed? Drop us a line and maybe we can follow up from the home office.

Vessel operators and foreign corrupt practices
It can be easy to view corruption as just part of the cost of doing business. There is even a view that corruption is business friendly since it sometimes greases the wheels of obstructive bureaucracy. Author: Capt. Max Hardberger
