Attendance up at dealer conference in OrlandoPosted on
The Marine Dealer Conference & Expo is under way in Orlando, Fla., and organizers said that more than 470 dealers are there for this year’s event, a slight increase from last year.
The conference, which is co-produced by the Marine Retailers Association of America and Boating Industry magazine, is offering a record-breaking 22 seminars and space for 96 exhibitors in the largest expo hall in the history of the event.
“We continue to be gratified by the importance that dealers are placing in attending this one-of-a-kind event to educate themselves,” MRAA president Phil Keeter said in a statement. “Even in this slow market, an increasing number of dealers take advantage of the value offered to them through the MDCE and continue to invest in their business and in their future.”
Once again, the conference offers three educational tracks: powering profits, sales and marketing and service and marina. The marina content, new for 2011, is offered through a partnership with the Association of Marina Industries and the American Boat Builders & Repairers Association.
All three tracks run today and Wednesday.
