      Will you be at the MAATS Show in Orlando, as I work and live in South Florida. I have a small manufacturing Company, and several of your store managers are selling our product now.
    If possible I would like to visit with you in Orlando.
    Thank you,

    I requested an appointment at the upcoming new product review day, last week had not heard back if we were invited to attend.
    Could you let us know if we can get a meeting time?

    We are a small company with a new product having been marketed the only the past 2 months. We have just learned this weekend of the “New Product Review Day” sponsored by West Marine held last Friday. We would very much like to present our new product to West Marine for consideration. Is there a protocol outside of the review day to do so?
    Safe boating…
