"We look forward to the annual IMATA conference since it provides us with a relaxed forum to meet first hand with the individuals that use our products.  The feedback we receive from our sponsored coffee breaks is priceless and also offers us a refreshing approach to our specialized business.  The general sessions provide us with an opportunity to learn from the world's foremost experts on the ever changing future of marine animal training.  We feel priviledged to be able to sponsor and work with IMATA to help them advance the human care and handling of marine animals around the world." - McRoberts Sales
